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.

Just took delivery of the Anderson 4" drop adjustable. Seems very nice and decent quality. Service by e-trailer was prompt once again. Will need to put the hitch to use before giving a complete review but impressed out of the box for now. Same with the locking pins.


Comments
Still content with the product. It appears to be well engineered and has served me well without issues through a year of use. Would get another if it becomes necessary for a second vehicle.

Just received my order yesterday. As stated in prior reviews, the ordering was simple, I received a confirmation of my order within minutes (on a Sunday!), a follow up email was sent the next day confirming shipment with an expected delivery date and a link to track the progress of my shipment, it arrived on Thursday (as stated). I then received another email asking if everything arrived ok and if there were any questions. In short, an excellent experience throughout. Love my new hitch and it looks great on my truck. I will definitely be sharing my experience with friends and family.

Convenient, easy to use, and the material held up great even after being left on the truck every day in the winter. The road salt had no impact on looks, finish, or function.

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.

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.

Review from a similar Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


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.


Comments
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


Hitch is awesome. I have it on my 2018 Sierra 1500 with 3” blocks (2” higher than stock) and this thing should allow me to adjust to whatever trailer I might need to pull. Solid quality; I have no concerns about it falling apart.

Review from a similar Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


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!


Comments
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


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.

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
$275.00
. 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


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


I ordered my AM3405 and was amazed how quickly the etrailer team responded with not only my order confirmation but the fantastic follow up when it was shipped and delivered. I highly recommend etrailer and will order from them again. The product showed up in great shape and I am very happy with the quality. One recommendation would be to order two of the locking pins. One for the receiver and one to lock the ball mount to the unit. You will see by my picture I resolved that issue with a pad lock but the locking pin would have been better.

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


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.

Great product and still working flawlessly.

    The Rapid Hitch Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount Kit w/ 2 Zinc Balls - 4" Drop or Rise # AM3462 has some moving parts.
