Andersen Fifth Wheel - AM3200

Kit replaces your heavy fifth-wheel hitch with a lighter frame that is easier to install and remove and a raised gooseneck ball. Converts your king pin into a gooseneck coupler. Installs on industry-standard fifth-wheel rails (sold separately).

    • Allows for easy, one-person installation and removal in minutes
  • Sturdy base supports a raised hitch ball
    • Installs on industry-standard 5th-wheel rails (sold separately)
      • Puts less stress on your trailer's kingpin than longer, typical adapters

      • Provides better clearance in long-bed or short-bed pickups
    • 3-Position ball adjusts 2-3/4" up and down
  • Included coupler adapter attaches to 5th-wheel trailer's king pin
    • Fits industry-standard 2" king pins
    • Requires no grease - eliminates this messy chore
    • Constructed of black powder coated steel to resist rust and corrosion

    • Gooseneck ball has greater swivel radius than standard 5th-wheel hitch

    • Coupler engages as long as the ball is within 3" of socket

  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Application: industry-standard 5th-wheel rails in long-bed or short-bed trucks
    • Works with CURT, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Reese and Valley rails
    • Will not fit beds shorter than 6'
    • Fixed pin boxes only
  • Gross towing weight: 20,000 lbs

  • Ball diameter: 2-5/16"
  • Weight: 40 lbs
  • 1-Year limited warranty


This fifth-wheel hitch system includes a lightweight frame that installs on industry-standard rails just like a regular fifth-wheel hitch. The frame holds a ball above your pickup bed at the proper height to connect to your fifth-wheel trailer. Because the ball is held above the bed of your truck, this adapter avoids the stress and chucking that longer, conventional fifth-wheel adapters create. And the included coupler adapter installs in a snap, converting your trailer's king pin to a gooseneck ball coupler.


The frame with ball weighs only 40 pounds and replaces the standard, heavy, cast iron skid plate and locking jaws of a typical fifth-wheel hitch. This system is light enough for just one person to easily install and remove. You'll always be able to take out the frame when you want full use of your pickup truck bed.


The king pin adapter includes a remote release that you operate with a cable, so you can latch the coupler to the ball without climbing into the back of your truck. Made of powder-coated steel, the adapter is resistant to rust and corrosion.


And because a ball-and-coupler connection has more swivel than a standard fifth-wheel hitch, you'll be able to more easily hook up your trailer on uneven ground.

Buying and installing the AM3200 filth wheel hitch was one of the best thing I Have done . It has made trailering a lot more comfortable driving , very little bucking when going over bridge expansion joints and bumps in the highways. I have a few problems hooking-up with the type of trailer hitch I Have on my 5th wheel and I also have air ride on my TV. When hooking up I Let all the air pressure off my air ride system and off the hitch. Before I disconnect (raise the trailer) I put on a ratchet strap to hold the hitch from dropping down, It sounds like a lot of work but it will have. To do till I come up with a better plan. I would not go back to my other hitch, you have to excuse the pics hard to pick 524001

We have the Anderson Hitch installed on our 2017 Ford SuperDuty and pull a Reflection 337RLS. We have traveled over 4,000 miles and have been extremely satisfied. The hitch allows plenty of clearance between 5th wheel, bed, and the truck cab. Hook-up and disconnect has always been easy, even with RV lots that were uneven dirt lots. I use Curt thin rubber sound dampeners (item 16900) and this provides a quiet, tight fit between the rails and hitch. Of course the light weight makes it easy to remove when not towing and less weight when you are towing. A great product for the right truck, trailer combination. 444939

After receiving the kit i saw another one on the shelf at a local store. I noticed the one on the shelf had a steel ball cup mounted to it. Mine did not have that part. I called andersen and asked if the ball cup was available for purchase seperately. They told me no need to purchase bevause they will ship me one for free! Later on, i towed my trailer to a camp site and upon arrival i could not get the release pin to open to drop the trailer while we stayed in it. I called andersen and described the problem i had, they shipped a whole new block and cable assembly for free!! I am ver pleased with the product and also impressed with the level of customer service! 424205

Very pleased with the Andersen hitch. Easy to install or remove, light weight and strong. So much more simple and faster to setup than my previous hitch. I can have full use of my truck bed in just a couple of minutes. I also feel the front jacks on the trailer will last longer since I am not stressing them by forcing the kingpin into the hitch as I had to do with my old hitch. The only negative I can find is the ball funnel. When raising the trailer off the ball it is important to chock the truck and trailer. If not chocked the truck can roll foward and break the lip off the ball funnel. Otherwise, in my opinion, this is the best 5th wheel hitch out there. 504527

I received the Andersen Ultimate hitch and Safety chain kit on Wednesday. This hitch is fantastic! It slid right into my existing standard rails and the coupler went on as easy as advertised. I have a 2016 Ram 2500 short bed and Grand Design Reflection 337RLS. I had a Curt E16 with the slider and would have to use the slider for tight maneuvers. I no longer have to worry about it. I now have plenty of clearance and I don't have to get out of the truck to engage the slide. I also like that I shed about 100 lbs of weight in the bed by making the switch. The ride is noticeably smoother and quieter. Great product. I 418743

It looks like a very good product BUT unfortunately did not work for my Fifth wheeler and truck combination. I am referring to the Anderson fifth wheeler hitch. I notified etrailer.com about returning this item. So I am still waiting for the slip to return this Anderson Hitch product part number: AM3200. Other than that etrailer.com customer service were very helpful and friendly. My Dexter drum and hub assembly fit and work exactly as expected. 248058

I bought the Andersen because of problems I was having with a Reese Slider. Most of the time the slider wouldn't unlock and slide back. The Andersen gave me the necessary clearance between the cab and the front cap on the trailer to make sharp turns. Another benefit of the Andersen is the reduction of noise when starting and stopping. The only down side to the hitch is I have a hard time getting it lined up when hitching. 434963

I was shocked to order this Anderson Hitch at mid-day on Thursday and it was delivered by 5:00 PM the very next day. Product was as advertised. I went with this hitch because people on my RAM Truck forum rave about them. This is my first experience with a fifth wheel and have not taken delivery of my trailer, but the hitch looks to be a quality product. 231631

Very good product. Easy, clean installation and removal. Only problem is when unhooking my trailer. The trailer does not come off the ball easily. It removes a shaving of metal off the ball each time I unhook. I suspect I will have to replace the ball at some time. 441852

The Anderson ultimate hitch has met my expectations in every way. It doesn't take two men and a boy to install to tow your RV and when you need to use your pickup to haul stuff it's light and just as easy to remove it. Hooks up and unhook with little effort. 444759

Arrived promptly and mounted to the rails easily. Height of the old hitch was duplicated with the adjustable ball. High quality welds and appears to be very sturdy. I like the fact that it is less than 1/2 the weight of the hitch that it replaced. 434248

Review from a similar Andersen Ultimate Connection in Fifth Wheel


I had reservations about using the Andersen Ultimate fifth wheel hitch, most of the reviews (that I researched) were negative but I decided to try the product for myself. I have a 2016 Titan XD SV (gas) model with a 6.5 truck bed and a 2017 Springdale fifth wheel (253FWRE). I can say without a doubt that the Andersen Ultimate fifth wheel hitch works! I have backed up and jack knifed between 70 and 75 degree angle and had about a foot and a half clearance from my truck cab and fifth wheel. Super easy to install, I did the work myself, the key is to purchase a torque wrench with correct socket and hex key socket. What I believe help make this hitch a success is the offset from hitchball on the Andersen unit (3") and the offset from the gooseneck adapter I believe it is also (3"). Additionally my fifth wheel has a sculpted nose, all of the negative reviews that some say about the Andersen fifth wheel hitch, they fail to mention that they are using an older fifth wheel model that has a flat nose. You may run into issue if you have and older model fifth wheel and a shorter bed than 6.5. Bottom line I have been extremely pleased with my purchase of the Andersen Ultimate fifth wheel hitch and would recommend this product to anyone that wants the easy set up and connection. 327332

Review from a similar Andersen Ultimate Connection in Fifth Wheel


I watched a video that Andersen had made abut this product and in the video they said it will work with a short bed truck. But that does not seem to be the case with my truck and trailer. I emailed Andersen about this but had no response. The problem is when I turn sharp to back the 5th wheel into a parking spot the 5th wheel will hit the cab of my truck. The hitch itself is great. Would like to hear back on why it dose not seem to work on my setup. 90104


Comments

The Andersen Ultimate Adapter AM3225 will work with all truck bed sizes, however it was not designed to allow a short bed truck to make a 90 degree turn. When towing a fifth wheel trailer, a sliding fifth wheel hitch or a sidewinder pin box is required for short bed trucks to make a 90 degree turn safely. This hitch only offers an offset of 5-1/4 inches. Typically, you will need anywhere from a 10 to 22 inch offset. If you can tell me the year, make, model and bed size of your truck, I will be happy to recommend some specific products that will work for you.

We have a 2012 Dodge Ram crew cab diesel and are interested in purchasing this hitch. Can you tell me if we will have the same issue as mentioned above?Thanks!

You very well could end up not being able to make a full 90 degree turn due to the limited offset this offers, only 5-1/4 inches. Part CAB-C5GX1216 offers more offset at 7-1/2 inches and the Adersen Rapid Hitch part AM3139 offers more at 8 inches. But these two are more of a long term solution.

The Andersen works for me. I have a 2015 GMC 2500 Std. Bed 6.6 ft. I mounted the King Pin adapter block where the Andersen ball connects in front of the KingPin that adapter block can be rotated so the ball connects either in front or behind the KingPin. I was going to also change my in-the-truck-bed-flip ball to a Curt 4 inch offset ball since this would give me another 4 inchs. But I didnt need it. A very relevant issue is the type of front nose on your fifth wheel. I have a 2016 Wildcat and like many newer 5ers the nose is sculpted deep. If you have an older 5er with a flat across nose, you may still have issues.Some folks I know flip the Andersen adapter to Ball behind Kingpin that loses the 5 14 clearance and then they add the Curt Offset that brings back 4 clearance. The reason to do that is to move more of the King Hitch body into the bed of the truck while leaving the pivot point basically the same well actually 1 1/4 less.

Review from a similar Andersen Ultimate Connection in Fifth Wheel


We've traveled cross country, twice, and over 10,000 miles towing and this has been the best hitch we've had yet. The roads aren't smooth and the 16,000 lb of our fifth wheel has ridden smooth and without chucking/bumping. We have the steel version and very glad we decided to purchase this hitch instead of the typical saddle type 5th wheel hitch we've used before. The captured photo attached is from our rear dash cam while transporting. 318601

Review from a similar Andersen Ultimate Connection in Fifth Wheel


I had been looking for a 5th wheel hitch that would fit in a Ford Dually truck I had just purchased. The truck had an existing flip up ball. It also had a 98 gal. fuel tank in the bed and a tonneau cover which I had to take into consideration. I was unable to find a hitch that would work without leaving rails in the bed until I found the Anderson Ultimate 5th wheel connection. I had a tight schedule and needed it to be sent 3 day delivery. The staff at etrailer.com went out of their way to give me measurements and make the schedule happen. It arrived on schedule and appears to be exactly what I need. Thanks for your help!!!

I did a lot of research trying to find the best bang for my buck and this is it. I have owned the hitch for about a year now and have had zero issues with it. I use it on my 40 foot elevation toy hauler and it works great and you can't beat the fact that you can take it out in a matter of minutes and have a completely empty and clean truck bed!!!! 241375

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Minimal Bed Contact for 2017 Ford Super Duty with Factory Prep Package
  • On models that have the factory 5th wheel prep package with the 4 pucks you would not be able to use the Anderson adapter # AM3200 because you would have to use the picture frame adapter # RP30156. Since both it and the Anderson are adapters it is not advisable to use an adapter in an adapter. I recommend using a hitch that will mount directly into the puck system in your 2017 Ford Super Duty because it will have minimal contact with the truck bed and using the proper hitch for the trailer...

  • The Andersen Ultimate 5th Wheel Adapter # AM3200 that you referenced can be installed in two ways.
