Is this right for you? Product Expert Alexander C says:

Yes, if you:

  • Frequently switch from towing your fifth wheel to hauling cargo in your truck bed
  • Are on the verge of needing a slider for clearance between your trailer and truck, but aren't ready to commit to the price or the bulk
  • Hate the rough slop and clanking noise that happens when a king pin is connected to a traditional hitch

No, if you:

  • Have a trailer that rides low to the ground - you might have a hard time lowering the trailer down on top of the ball
  • Have a rotating pin box like a Sidewinder on your fifth wheel
Kit replaces your heavy fifth-wheel hitch with a lighter frame that is easier to install and remove and a raised gooseneck ball. Converts your king pin into a gooseneck coupler.

Andersen AM3200 Dimensions

This fifth-wheel hitch system includes a lightweight frame that installs on industry-standard rails just like a regular fifth-wheel hitch. The frame holds a ball above your pickup bed at the proper height to connect to your fifth-wheel trailer. Because the ball is held above the bed of your truck, this adapter avoids the stress and chucking that longer, conventional fifth-wheel adapters create. And the included coupler adapter installs in a snap, converting your trailer's king pin to a gooseneck ball coupler.


The frame with ball weighs only 40 pounds and replaces the standard, heavy, cast iron skid plate and locking jaws of a typical fifth-wheel hitch. This system is light enough for just one person to easily install and remove. 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 powder-coated steel, the adapter is resistant to rust and corrosion.


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 trailer on uneven ground.

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.


Comments
Still works perfectly! Makes towing so easy.

by:

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.
Rich R - 12/17/2021


by:

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.

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:

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:

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

by:

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:

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:

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:

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:

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:

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:

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:

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:

This hitch has done everything I thought it would. Quite impressive..Fits my needs.




by:

Used this hitch only four times this summer. So far I think it is great.




by:

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:

Very easy to hook up. You don’t have to be straight inline with the trailer. Easy to put in and out of truck freeing up bed space. Pulls great!




by:

It was a great buy and can move easily from truck to truck with goose neck hitches!!


Comments
Great buy, easy in easy out.
Raul M - 06/08/2017

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:

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


Comments
Great, easy to install, smooth transitions from stop to start
Gary - 04/27/2020


by:

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:

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:

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!
