Andersen AM3200 Dimensions

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.

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

Couldn't have been more happier changing from a conventional hitch to the Andersen. I pulled a 41' Solitude 374TH with it and never had an issue. Loved having my bed back while stationary, unlike having to keep a conventional hitch in or struggle with two people getting it out. Hooking up was a breeze too. I just used my mark as usual and after a time or two was dropping down on the ball on the first try. Easy peezzzeee. Order you one today!!! 620375

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

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


Comments
I purchased the new nylon coupling guide. It works very well and metal no longer is shaved off upon removal.

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

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

Thank you for reaching out. All i can say is, as long as i own a fifth wheel i will use your product. I am very pleased with the quality of the product and obviously the customer service as well!

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

Never wanted 5th wheel because of losing truck bed space with regular hitch. This is great, pulls like a dream, light weight, removes quick for storage-40lbs., 2018 Bighorn 35’ 5th. 639693

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

I’m very happy with this hitch. It exceeded all expectations. I no longer have the pushing and clattering of the traditional fifth wheel hitch.

Couldn’t be happier with this hitch. I was looking for a better quality slider to replace my old model and looking at spending a lot more when I found this Andersen hitch. Stands up to our 39 foot Jayco, no worries about having to remember to slide it before backing up. Rides so much quieter and, when I want to remove it, I can easily do it myself! The plastic piece broke when a dealer dried to lift the trailer with a backhoe (long story) Andersen replaced it without batting an eye! Pulling with a 2019 F350 crew can short box. Oh and trailer.com was super easy to deal with as an added bonus! 784868

This has been an excellant choice for my Winnebago fifth wheel rv and Ram 2500 combination. Towing is both quiet and smooth with no chucking at all.

The Ultimate Hitch made a world of difference in towing my 5th wheel, very smooth compared to traditional hitch. Towed with a 2004 Dodge short bed, 5th wheel never came close to truck cab when turning or backing up. For me the best part was the ease (light weight ) of installing and removing from the bed of truck by myself. I bought the rail mounted steel hitch. Buying and customer service from Etrailer is top notch beyond 5 Stars! 698599
