If you would like to tow a fifth-wheel trailer but have a gooseneck hitch, or you just like the ease of towing with a gooseneck hitch, this Andersen Ultimate Connection gooseneck to fifth-wheel adapter was made for you.


This fifth-wheel hitch system includes a lightweight frame that installs on any industry-standard gooseneck hitch ball. The frame holds a ball above your pickup bed at the proper height to connect to your fifth-wheel trailer. So, compared with typical fifth-wheel-to-gooseneck adapters, which are longer, Andersen's Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection applies less leverage and puts less stress on the coupler. This also helps to reduce chucking. The included coupler adapter installs in a snap, converting your trailer's king pin to a gooseneck ball coupler.


The frame with ball weighs 75 pounds. It's lighter than the typical fifth-wheel hitch. 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 steel, the adapter is strong and durable.


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 fifth-wheel trailer on uneven ground.

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.

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.

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

Review from a similar Andersen Ultimate Connection in Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters


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

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

Do you have a question about this Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapter?


  • Concerns About Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Dodge Ram 3500 Equipped with a Goose Neck Hitch
  • There are several ways to adapt a 5th wheel trailer to enable it to be towed with a truck that has a goose neck hitch installed. The best choice for you will depend on how often you need to change between trailer types. Some of the adapters that allow this flexibility will put more stress on the trailer frame than other types. Options are still somewhat limited for newer vehicles like your 2014 Ram. The best method is to replace the pin box on your 5th wheel with a compatible goose box...

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • Some trailer manufacturers will void a warranty if an adapter is used. This is the biggest con if trying to determine pros and cons. You will need to contact the trailer manufacturer to determine if the trailer warranty will be voided if an adapter is used. If the trailer has a Lippert chassis then I recommend using a Goose Box adapter because when used with a Lippert chassis and pin box, it will not void the warranty. There are 2 Goose Box units available. First is # RP94622. It is...

  • I spoke with my contact at Lippert and I have a solution as to how to maintain your warranty and still be able to pull your fifth wheel trailer with the gooseneck hitch. She said that the use of any extension or gooseneck adapter will void the limited frame warranty. This would include the use of the Andersen Gooseneck Hitch to Fifth Wheel King Pin Adapter, # AM3225. To maintain the warranty, her recommendation was for the Reese Goosebox. It is an acceptable aftermarket replacement for...

  • 5th Wheel Stabilizer Tripod Recommendation for a Trailer Using Andersen Ultimate Connection Adapter
  • Since you have an Andersen Ultimate Fifth Wheel Attachment like part # AM3225 the only option you can use for a stabilizer like the part # HT75203 would be one designed for a gooseneck hitch like part # UF19-950400 since the Andersen uses a gooseneck style ball. Or you could remove the block adapter of the Andersen and use the # HT5203, but I think the # UF19-950400 would be a better option.

  • Are Safety Chains Required with Anderson Ultimate Hitch
  • Although safety chains are not specifically required to use the Andersen Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection # AM3225 we would still recommend you use them. Your trailer should have chains on it and the gooseneck hitch should have safety loops. You will want to make sure that the safety chains are routed in a way that they will not bind up with the # AM3225 when turning. Check out the review video for this product that I attached also.

What you can use with your gooseneck hitch is the Andersen Ultimate 5th wheel connection, # AM3225.

The Goose Box actually replaces the existing pin box on a fifth wheel trailer and since it doesn't cause any additional stress in either the trailer frame or hitch, using this will not affect the warranty on the Lippert trailer frame. Lippert does not endorse the use of any other adapter. The Goose Box is made...

The adapter should not be used with the plastic type of bed liners because it would not be a secure enough connection.

The mechanism that retains the ball in the Remov-a-Ball is not compatible with the post that the 5th wheel portion of the adapter needs to attach to. We do have some other options, though.

This set up will only work if your Ram has rear coil spring suspension.

I have attached a short product review video of the adapter. Be advised that by using a hitch adapter with a short bed truck, you may not be able to maneuver 90 degree turns.

In either case since the adapter part that fits on the king pin can easily be removed I recommend going with a 5th wheel stabilizer, see link. You could use the gooseneck type and keep the adapter on but it is just one more link in the chain instead of a direct connection between the king pin and the stabilizer which would be more ideal.

  • Advantages of Using Andersen Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection # AM3225 Compared To Other Adapters
  • The Andersen Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection you mentioned, part # AM3225 is an adapter used to tow a fifth wheel trailer with a gooseneck hitch equipped truck. The best practice is always to use a fifth wheel hitch for a fifth wheel trailer and a gooseneck hitch for a gooseneck trailer. When this is not possible, an adapter will come into play. The huge advantage provided by the # AM3225 over other adapters is that the AM3225 does not need to be permanently attached to the fifth wheel....

If you are using ANY adapter that uses a gooseneck ball, safety chains will be required. Examples of those kind of adapters would be the Convert-A-Ball, part # CAB-C5GX1216, or the Ranch Hitch Universal Coupler Adapter, part # AM3100, or the Andersen Adapter, part # AM3225.

My contact tells me that the # AM3225 Ultimate Connection will work on any short bed (6 foot or longer) pickup unless the fifth wheel has a super-extended pin box. If this is the case, the coupler can be flipped 180 degrees so that the king pin leads the gooseneck ball, which will allow the pin box to clear the tailgate.

Currently the only 5th wheel to gooseneck adapter that we offer that has an offset is the Anderson Ultimate connection # AM3225.

  • Since the axle cannot be flipped, there's not too many other options, I'm afraid. You can have taller spring hangers installed on the 5th wheel, but a 2 inch taller spring hanger won't necessarily translate into a 2 inch gain in height. The Ford bed sides are taller than GM or Ram, and if your truck is lifted at all, it will further compound the problem. If you have enough clearance, you might be able to go up in wheel diameter by 1or 2 inches or so, and combined with taller hangers...

  • The aluminum block is held tightly against the underside of the pin box by tightening the 4 set screws on underside of the block. Once the set screws are properly torqued, the block will not rotate. If you look at the video I've linked for you, and fast forward to the 3:30 mark, you can see how our installer tightens the set screws that prevent the block from moving. I've also linked you to an FAQ article about towing a 5th wheel trailer with a gooseneck hitch.
