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.

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.

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.

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

This is my second one. It really does a great job compensating for differences in trailer heights and hitch diameters.

- AM3460

Love the design and hitch machining but, I would rather have two separate ball inserts instead of one reversible unit, at the lowest setting it just seems the non used end hangs kinda low.

- AM3460

Great hitch. It has served me well.

- AM3460

Love the hitch, this was perfect for my 2105 F150 to tow a variety of trailers, from small utility trailers to large boats, the adjustment always makes the trailer sit right.

- AM3460

Every order I have ever placed with the trailer has been delivered fast at a fair price and always the best value

- AM3460

I've been using my rapid hitch for almost a year now, and I have to say that I can't find anything really wrong with it. It has virtually eliminated the need to carry multiple mounts around. The adjustability has provided the perfect options for height for everything from utility trailers, boats of all sizes, car trailers and large enclosed snowmobile trailers. An added benefit is that it looks pretty good too.

- AM3460

Love this Hitch. I haul Heavy Equipment regularly and this has made things much easier to use especially when using different trucks for hauling.

- AM3460

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!

- AM3460

Works pretty much as advertised. Had a little issue getting the pin through the balls as it is pretty tight machining tolerances. After that it is just a solid tow hitch solution. Just be sure to put the ball pin with the threads out. I din't pay attention the first time. That ensures you can put a bolt in the threads to pull to remove the pin.

- AM3460

Rugged construction, very adjustable, and easy to adjust. Excellent!!. The lawn trailer needs 3inch drop and the camper needs 3inch rise - this hitch does it all and switching over takes only seconds. Only had for a week so towed just a couple times and only a few miles but perfect so far.

- AM3460

The hitch is high quality and it's also made in the USA, which is important to me. I am excited to tow my 6000 Lb. boat with the new hitch, I think it will do quit well. I will have to buy a pair of locks for the hitch, so it doesn't disappear from the back of my truck. I really appreciate the free shipping, too.

- AM3460

Bought this trailer hitch from etrailer website was easy to use, product information was what it said it was, and it was delivered with in the week. I'm very happy with etrailer and the product I purchased. Would recommend etrailer to anyone.

- AM3460

Was able to use the hitch for the first time this weekend. It was used to tow a BobCat mini excavator, almost 8,000 lbs. Worked like a charm. Was able to adjust it to level both trailers that I used to deliver and return the excavator.

- AM3460

This is a great product, so light and easy to use. Wish I had known about the pre-coated ball version, as i would have purchased that version, just cleaner than having grease on everything. Still this is by far so much easier than the old metal style receivers!!

- AM3460

Awesome product! I'm a professional contractor with multiple trailers and this has covered all my needs. Worth every penny.

- AM3460

This is my second Rapid Hitch- they are tough, versatile, and easy-to-use!

- AM3460

This thing is alsome looking, and I can't wait to use it! Thanks again to all at etrailer!!

- AM3460

Very nice product, don't have to worry when towing my 7000lb boat. Very versatile, and the polished aluminum is a great finish, do not have to worry about rust. Used on a 2011 F-150.

- AM3460

This is a beautifully machined hitch assembly......I hope nobody steals it! Delivery was lickety split and I am very pleased.

    If you have adjustable coupler # AM3460 then it sounds like it is all there based on your description. Take a look at the picture I have included that shows the clip through the hole on the pin that holds on the ball platform. If this is how your set up looks then it is correct.

  • Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F-150
    As long as you have a 2 inch hitch installed on your 2015 Ford F-150 Super Crew the Rapid Hitch part # AM3460 that you referenced would fit and work well. I couldn't find any reports that the ball mount interfered with any sensors.

  • Will There be Rattle When Using Rapid Hitch Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount Kit # AM3460
    As you note, the primary value of this aluminum ball mount # AM3460 from Andersen is the range of adjust-ability which enables it to work with a variety of trailer and vehicle heights, and both 2-inch and 2-5/16-inch coupler sizes. If you typically tow more than one trailer on a regular basis this convenience may outweigh any minor rattle in this system. It is also light in weight at 19-lbs compared to steel ball mounts. It is true that this adjustable ball mount has three mechanical joints...

  • Which Andersen Rapid Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount for 2008 Suburban and 2009 Silverado
    In order to make a recommendation about which ball mount would be best for your needs, I'd really need to know the coupler height of the trailer when it's level. Give that the average coupler height is between 16 and 19 inches. Based on that, I'd recommend the # AM3410. Both the ball mounts you mentioned are the same price. You might as well get the model that offers the most flexibility.

  • Lock For Rapid Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount For 3 Inch and 2 Inch Receiver
    We can get you a hitch lock that will work with your 3 inch and 2 inch hitches, but there isn't a separate keyed alike option that allow you to use one key to lock the platform and the ball mount to a 3" and 2" hitch. So what you will need to do is get separate locks that use different keys in order to lock both the platform and mount with the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount # AM3405 or # AM3460.

    The trailer hitch I recommend for a 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan is the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98854 which has a hitch height of 13". The difference in hitch height of the trailer will be the rise/drop you need to look for in a ball mount.
