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.

Still works perfectly! Makes towing so easy.

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!


Comments
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




by: Rich R12/17/2020

Love this hitch! Bought the Andersen because I wanted to be able to remove hitch easily and be able use the truck bed. It takes only a few minutes to remove from bed no tools required.

I installed the bed rail kit myself in my 2019 Ram 2500 short bed. The Andersen hitch allows my 32' fifth wheel 90 degrees turning radius.


Comments
Excellent hitch! Working great towing 10k fifth wheel.

Love this hitch. Easy to hook up and easy to unhook ! If you have to remove it from your truck it's an easy one person job. Should have had this year's ago !!!




by: Surveyor07/22/2021

This hitch is perfect. No noise, no play at all. Very easy to hook up. Piece for bed of pickup is light. Can not believe it is rated 20,000 lbs. Love it! Did not buy any other 20k hitch due to weight and cost. Storage in garage is so easy--hang it on the wall.


Comments
This is an excellent hitch. The base is light and easy to remove and store. We needed a 20k hitch and this seem like the best. There is not movement when towing, no noise, chucking, etc.

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.




by: Wayne02/08/2022

I love it and would never go back to a traditional hitch. Much easier to hook up to my 5th wheel, never have to worry about locking or unlocking. Is quieter and so easy to install and uninstall in my truck!




by: Joe G01/03/2020

This was an excellent choice for stable, reliable and ease of use hitch. Very easy to hook up in many directions. Would recommended this hitch.




by: Charles12/21/2021

After opening the box and removed the contents the lower bracket which the hitch is secured to isn't provided. Must I order it separately?let me know as I need to have it installed. Thanks

Just received my anderson goosneck 5th wheel hitch and installed right away. Material is made of superior craftsmanship and will be looking forward to not lifting my heavy husky anymore. 5 star all the way




by: Robert 08/05/2021

I really like the Anderson Hitch. The Hitch is only 40 lbs, so it easy to install and remove so that I can use the bed of my truck when not towing. It was a little tight to install in my rails so I had to do a small amount of grinding to get it to fit. I also purchased the safety chains and one of the hooks was also tight and needed some grinding.

The hitch is really easy to use and towing has been smooth.




by: James11/24/2021

I think etrailer.com is great. Fast, professional and personable. They are always happy to help and they are patient with many, many questions being asked. I highly recommend them. Good prices, too. And if you find a better price they will meet or beat it.




by: Paul01/03/2021

I spent the last year pulling our Montana High Country around the U.S. with this Anderson hitch. I have to admit, at first I was leery of this simple hitch handling a 16,000# 5th wheel, however it has done its job very well. Even on a bad section of road (Hwy. 145 near Ridgway CO) where I swear we became airborne on one of the dips in the road, but the hitch handled the rig just fine. The hitch takes me less than 5 minuets to put in and take out of the truck bed and is light enough to move and store in the front bay of the 5th wheel. The only down side is the need for a 5th wheel tripod stabilizer that will fit in the Anderson King pin adapter, hopefully it is coming soon.




by: Mona06/30/2021

We love our Anderson hitch. Hooking and unhooking is so much easier. It's so much lighter to remove if we need to use our truck bed. Happy campers!




by: John M05/05/2018

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.




by: Gary04/26/2019

The Anderson 5th wheel hitch has lived up to name. Lightweight and easy to install. We traveled 10,000 miles with out a problem.

by: Paul10/12/2017

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.


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

I like the hitch. It is extremely easy to remove from truck. I’ve had no problems with it towing my 5th wheel camper.




by: Rich J04/11/2019

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!!!




by: Donnie L.09/21/2017

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.




by: Walt 03/04/2020

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. I can see the ball and anderson socket while hooking up making the process very easy on first try every time. I would recommend this product to anyone within the proper weight range.




by: Cornelio09/06/2019

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!




by: Kevin04/23/2020

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!

  • Benefits of Slider Hitch Over Andersen Ultimate Adapter AM3200
  • The Andersen Ultimate Connection 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # AM3200 does fit into the same industry-standard base rails as your Reese slider hitch. And though it does provide 9-inches of offset this is not the same amount of clearance you get from a slider hitch. Reese sliders like # RP30084 usually give you 10 to 12-inches of travel for making low-speed turns, and others like the 18K Demco Hijacker # DM8550034 and the 21K model # DM8550035 give you 14-inches of travel for excellent worry-free...

Nice little hitch...but only if you have a flatbed. Was told by etrailer that this would work ok in my 2006 dodge ram pickup with factory bed. I can pull my camper with it, but only on perfectly flat ground. Was also told by etrailer this height was adjustable, but in fact it is not. I'm now looking for a used base that is the proper one for my truck. I also noticed etrailer scrubbed all their reviews and photos showing this sitting in the bed of a regular pickup and has since changed the description for only for flatbeds. I applaud them for doing this, just wish they'd done it before I bought mine. So if you have a flatbed, this is a great hitch. If you're thinking of putting it in the bed of a pickup, then get the RP3500 version of this hitch instead.


Comments
I have looked more into this hitch adapter, and this adapter height is not adjustable. I apologize for the misinformation. If you are wanting an adjustable adapter, I recommend part # BWRVK3400. This adapter has a GTW of 20,000 lbs.

I am very impressed with the quality of this BW 5th wheel hitch. I chose it because it what is recommended for use on my new flatbed for my truck. The flatbed is designed with this hitch in mind. It fits perfectly in the gooseneck well and is easy to install/remove. Just tighten/loosen the tension bolt and slide the locking pin to switch from gooseneck ball to 5th wheel.

Going with this hitch and a flatbed makes trailering so much easier. No more step ladders, standing on running boards or tire to reach the hitch handle. Just reach over, grab the handle to open/close the jaws and set the safety pin.

Highly recommend it.

My B&W hitch is still working great and Im very happy with my purchase.

This was a perfect fit for my truck. I had no other (easy) way to hook up our fifth-wheel and this did the trick. Very easy to take out and is a very good quality hitch.




by: David05/19/2020

What a great hitch ! I had purchased a 5th wheel RV about three weeks ago and thought without a doubt that I would be drilling holes in flatbed and be paying 1500 to 1800 to have a hitch installed.
Thanks to B&W I was able to install this hitch in less than an hour with no other expense other that the hitch itself.
Our first trip cover about 400 miles the hitch had absolutely no slack or play in towing. A great product . Precision made in the USA, Thank you !!




by: Scott12/27/2022

The bolts hit the side oh the throughway on an Cm/ER model bed etrailers was no help at all.


Comments
This is just an adapter, so there is no guarantee that it will fit your application. What I can do is send your information over to our customer service department for them to set up a return for you and look into some other possible options for your CM ER model bed.

Great build quality. This is the only fifth wheel hitch I could find to fit the tight space on my truck.




by: James02/26/2020

This is the second unit I have owned. The first in a Ford and the second for a Chevy. Easy to assemble and install. Great directions. It fits in the B&W Gooseneck receiver, latch the latch, then connect the floor safety bars, tighten and torque the bolts. It tows great!! Heavy to get into the truck, but comes in two pieces. The base mounts first then the top section sit on the rocker bearings and latches. Can't beat buying from etrailer!!

Awesome website. Have ordered from them before and great prices and fast delivery!




by: Thomas05/09/2022

Excellent to deal, great prices, very helpful staff, could not have done any more to help & fast delivery. The only negative is that you cannot use a MasterCard with an overseas address attached to it even though you have a US delivery address & PayPal charges 3.5% plus the currency exchange rate.




by: Fred02/17/2018

This product is just what the doctor ordered. The instruction sheets are good, and show the manufacturer spent a goodly amount of time getting them just right. I would recommend this hitch to anyone with a flatbed, having a turnover ball installed, get this hitch. it is easy and fast to install and the cost is just right.
