Video Transcript for Review of Andersen Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - AM3414

Today we're taking a look at a Rapid Hitch Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount from Andersen. This adjustable aluminum alloy ball mount fits inside of a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver. It's a strong lightweight unit. It looks great, and it won't rust or corrode.Now, this ball mount is able to adjust in one inch increments, providing up to a ten inch drop and an 11 inch rise. I'll explain those more towards the end of the video. This is recommended for vehicles with greater than 24 inches from the ground to the top of the receiver opening of the hitch, when your vehicle's in the level position.

So that's going to really include a lot of pick-up trucks and lifted vehicles.This allows towing of various trailers using the same ball mount. So not only can you adjust it, but you also have two hitch balls on the unit. The adjustability is nice, because that's going to ensure that your vehicle is always as level as possible with the trailer that you're towing. Then also, you have a two inch ball and a one and 7/8th inch ball to tow trailers that may have different coupler sizes.This does have two zinc plated steel hitch balls. It's a two-sided ball platform.

Again, you have a one and 7/8th and a two inch ball. The hitch ball's secure to the unit with this adjustment pin and clip. Then the hitch ball's secure to the platform with an internal pin. That allows for easy interchangeability. You can actually remove the pin, remove the balls, and additional ball sizes can be purchased to replace the originals.So to make your adjustments you'll need to pull this pin and clip.

That allows this unit to adjust up and down the shank there, and it can be completely removed from it. Here on the back side you can see that pin, so if you remove that pin it actually allows this solid piece hitch ball to be removed from the platform.To switch between the ball sizes, you simply just take this off, flip it, and then reinstall it.So it's a very easy system to use. It's very quick when needing to make your adjustments.Now you will need a hitch pin and clip, or a hitch lock, to secure it inside the receiver to the rear hitch. Those items are sold separately and available at etrailer.com. Again, the product's an aluminum construction.

Hitch balls are steel. And, it's all made in the U.S.A.It fits a two inch hitch. It is compatible with a two and a half inch hitch. You will need a two and a half inch to two inch reducer sleeve or adapter to make that happen. Those are sold separately and available at etrailer.com.The gross trailer weight, or gross towing weight, when using the one and 7/8th inch ball is 75,000 pounds and 8,000 pounds with the two inch ball. Then the unit itself is rated with a tongue weight capacity of 1,500 pounds.So if you're using it in the rise position, and if you have the platform at the highest setting, it's going to give you a maximum rise of 11 inches. That's measured from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch, up to the top of that ball platform.Now, you'll notice that there's multiple slots for adjustment, so you can get a rise of anywhere from five inches to 11 inches in the rise position. In the drop position the max drop is 10 inches with it at it's lowest setting. Again, inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch, down to the top of the ball platform. You're drops go from four inches to ten inches. Again, increments of one inch when it comes to the adjustment. The measurement that we have from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the center of the hitch balls is around nine and 1/4 inches.That's going to do it for today's look at the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount from Andersen.

Very pleased with product, looks awesome on my lifted 01 Ford Superduty F-350. This 10 inch drop allowed me to keep my trailer level when hauling my 4 wheeler. Just in time for opening day.

This hitch is fantastic. The universal size works well with any vehicle. It is solid, sturdy, there’s no “give” when towing. It doesn’t waiver in quality and craftsmanship. The fact that it has an interchangeable ball works out perfectly. I would recommend this hitch to everyone I know.

Product looks and feels great. Only reason it got a 4/5 is because a truck driver friend of mine told me that he had one and the shank wore down from rubbing on steel bc of the aluminum on steel receiver contact. I might rig up a thin steel collar for it to prevent any degradation down the road. Works great on my truck with 7 inches of lift and 35" tires. Buy the Andersen Stainless steel locking pins for it so it doesn't walk off. New pins have better corrosion resistance and are less easily picked by thieves than standard barrel locks, plus they match the look.


Comments
After a year of use I love it. I hear too many problems from friends with other hitches and Im very satisfied with this purchase. It has stayed clean and shiny with just normal car washing and it still adjusts up and down smoothly. Still plenty sturdy and no more wiggle on the shaft then it had when I got it. Highly recommend getting the upgraded stainless steel locking pins from Andersen. Both locks are matching for each pin and far more secure than the standard barrel locks.

Really like the hitch still after 1 year, just wish I had purchased the locking bolts with it. Make me feel more secure

Great quality Ball Mount Kit. I had read review about not being able to mount it upward on the RAM2500 because the bumper was out by 1/2" too much. In my case it's about 1/8" off but my truck is very high (That's why I got the 10" kit) and I can't imagine ever using it in the upward position anyway. It does rattle a lot but I think I can fix that with some thin rubber strips. It shines so much that now the hitch attracts attention more than the truck, make sure you get the lock pins if you don't want to get it stolen...

George at etrailer got my order shipped the same day it was placed and I placed it in the late evening after dinner. The order arrived, on time, as scheduled. I am very pleased with my Andersen 10-inch drop trailer hitch, and want everyone to know what an "OUTSTANDING" service etrailer provided to me. I will certainly do business with etrailer again in the future, and I highly recommend etrailer for your towing needs.

Have not towed yet so can't speak about performance however hitch appears very solid. I can say that its very trick. Who doesn't love machined billet aluminum. I sprung for the locks as well since it's not exactly cheap. I will say that etrailer had the best price I could find on the web. Shipping was fast and free with great communication.

Review from a similar Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Haven't pulled anything with it yet, but overall it appears to be a quality product. There is over .0500 play in the hitch when mounted in the receiver. That will probably make a lot of noise. The adjustment part of the hitch seems pretty good.


Comments
Still working great. Have had no issues at all. One to mention though is I dont leave the hitch in when not being used.

Highly recommend this beast of a hitch. I have used it for many different size trailers and the ease of adjustment and changing out ball sizes is fantastic. Do not hesitate if you are in the market. I loved this hitch so much that I bought their ultimate 5th wheel hitch when I bought my toy hauler.

Original statement stands, this thing is just awesome!

Review from a similar Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I received my hitch on time very nice looking and very easy to adjust the height and change the ball size from the 2" to the 2 5/16", my only complaint is why does this not come with a locking pin for the ball or a least offer it when ordering this product.

the hitch is working out great 1 year later and the aluminum still looks great!

Review from a similar Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I purchased this to replace a Fastway Flash E Series Ball mount that I purchased and returned from another online seller that did not provide enough clearance from my rear bumper in the rise position. My vehicle really needed the extra 5/8ths of an inch of length on the shank of the Rapid Hitch. Clearance was not a problem in the drop position; but with a receiver that's 18-inches off the ground, I need to use the rise position more frequently than many. The other thing I noticed is that this ball mount is feels more substantial than the one from Fastway. In use, I prefer this to the Andersen EZ hitch I had been borrowing. It looks really cool. It has 5 adjustment positions rather than four and bit more adjustability in either direction. Plus, it still fits in easily in the storage area underneath the floor of my SUV. And did I say it looks really cool. I hated to put grease on the ball before I went to hook up the trailer. Also, I plan to get the lock set. It's looks great on my SUV and seems likely to disappear overnight and look great on someone else's vehicle.


Comments
Ive used this ball mount a lot over the last year both in the 2-inch and 2 and 5/16-inch configuration and it has held up very well. There is a small grove in the shaft from my hitch receiver but, otherwise, it still looks almost new. I did ultimately purchase the lock set for those occasions where I would be disconnecting the trailer, I was towing overnight but didnt want to remove the ball mount only to have to put it back on in the morning.

This is the third Anderson Rapid Hitch I have owned and they are always the best option in my opinion. They not only look awesome......but they are one of the strongest drop hitches on the market!

I have had this particular hitch for about a year and it still looks as good as it did the day I installed it. Absolutely no issues!

Review from a similar Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I have a small trailer and a minivan. This hitch was very easy to install and has worked perfectly for us. We travel back and forth about 700 miles from one state to another several times per year and have no garage in one of the states. The hitch is aluminum, so it weathers well and still looks new. I am glad I picked this hitch. I will transfer it when I purchase a new vehicle and believe it will serve us well for many years. Thank you for making a quality product!!

Review from a similar Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Sooooo....you sent me a product that was somehow put together backwards and I cannot take them apart somehow the ballhitch is stuck on the male portion backwards and defies gravity and doesn’t need a pin to stay on(becaue thier is no where to put the pin in cause it’s backwards


Comments
I contacted Andersen and they ship the ballmounts out with the ball portion on the shank backwards. Sometimes the ball will get wedged on there during shipping. According to Andersen you can use a rubber mallet and gently dislodge it.

Just installed, haven’t towed with it yet, quality after examination is spot on. The hitch lock set by Anderson towing products is very well machined. Lori B. At etrailer answered all my questions, was polite and professional. This is my first order from them but won’t be my last.

Review from a similar Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Works flawlessly. I was very excited the day I got home and my Rapid hitch was on the front porch. It came in nice box and was packaged very well. I opened it up and unpacked my rapid hitch and I was very impressed with the quality and precision of this hitch. All of the machining was PERFECT and everything fit together right. I put it in my truck right away. Going down the road with the trailer on and off there is absolutely no rattles, clunks, or jolts. I also love how everything is aluminum or stainless steel, NO RUST. I wish I could've gotten the greaseless model but my boat is too heavy. My only complaint is that it doesn't come with locking pins. With a hitch this expensive I really wish it came with them. Do yourself a favor and order them with your rapid hitch so you don't have to pay for shipping in the future. Other than that great product and I believe it will outlast me.

Review from a similar Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This is a really nice hitch if you tow a variety of trailers or need to get your ball up high as I need to do on my 1999 F450. I needed the ball up high to level my Jeep tow bar, so this is just the ticket for me. This hitch is made in the USA, which is great too. eTrailer.com service is excellent and their communication perfect. They obviously care about their customers and the product. Only 2 things prevent a 5 star rating for this very pricey hitch. IMO, for the money, the manufacturer should also include: 1. a lock pin for the adjustable hitch ball. 2: an anti-rattle attachment.

Review from a similar Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Hello The hitch works great as viewed in the enclosed pictures. If inverted it hits the bumper, of my Dodge 2500. The section that goes into the receiver is about 1/2" too short and hits the bumper. I have not tried it on my other vehicle to see if this is a problem. Kind Regards Leon D


Comments
Leon, I have the same problem and am looking for a resolution. Ive called Andersen my CA sales rep and left a message.Id even be interested in paying for a custom shank length to be built for me needs. Well see, fingers crossed.
-- comment by: JohnnyJ - 09/04/2014

Johnny thanks for the feedback. In case you did not know we do also offer some ball mounts in extended lengths (long and extra long) for this exact reason. For a long ball mount that has the same rise and drop as this Rapid Hitch ball mount, check out the Diversi-Tech # DTSTBM7025
Solid-Tow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w Chrome Balls - 2-1/2" Hitch - 10" Drop, 11" Rise
$291.36
. For this ball mount the distance from the center of the hitch pinhole to the back of the upright bar is 4-1/4 inches, vs. the Rapid Hitch # AM3413 is 3 inches.

Review from a similar Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Love the hitch except for 1 thing. It is not capable of stowing. If the reason for that is because it would not be as strong, then it is worth it. If we could maintain strength and still allow it to stow that would be awesome!

Review from a similar Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Great looking hitch that works great for our needs towing about 7,000lbs on a regular basis. Hitch is durable and easy to use. Adjust quickly between vehicles and different trailer heights. I would highly recommend buying the hitch locks as well. Standard ones you find don’t fit the wider slide to properly secure it.


Comments
Great product and still working flawlessly.

It’s a beautiful thing! The hitch is solid aluminum and rock solid. It has a polished surface and will not rust. The pin dropped right out so I could flip the ball mount and everything works smoothly. It is far superior to the one it replaced.

This is a well made product. The production is top notch. The machining is great. It does what it says it will do, now, and for a long time. MADE IN U.S.A! Great hitch!

After one year the itch is just as good as it was on day one. The adjustability allows me to use it on every vehicle I own.

  • Replacement Pin For Andersen Rapid Hitch
    I may have a solution for you, but the screw in ball for the adjustment pin is not an available replacement part. With that said, you can use the Replacement Adjustment Pin and Clip for Rapid Hitch AM3400 Series # AM3431 as a new pin that does not have the screw in ball on top of it.
