Lots of arguing about the ride quality, but there are a few great things about the hitch that being 65 years old I would like. Not having the back breaking 5th wheel hitch to move in and out. And my favorite thing about the gooseneck hitch is when you get on uneven surfaces, the gooseneck never binds up. I have had gooseneck adapters for 20 years and no problem. I just bought a new Arctic fox 5th. wheel and had them remove the More-ryde pinbox and replace it with the Reese goosebox. I love it. With every new Idea, there are so many people who are convinced that what they have is the best, and every one else just isn't as smart as they are. What I do see on KSL classified adds, is a hundred 5th. wheel hitches for sale. I think they will go the way of the dodo. JMO Dave-R

I think the Anderson is a great idea and would of tried it if I had a long bed (well, realistically if I had a dually long bed it would be a ts3 hitch) but for my short bed I didn't want to risk it. My b&w and sidewinder is flawless...only thing for my setup that would be better is a fifth airborne air ride sidewinder but they don't make them greater than 16k. I don't think b&w is going the way of the dodo...but the Anderson is a good alternative no soubt

He's never owned/used one but he's the leading authority on them. That's the sad thing with these forums, you get very little advice but a whole crap-load of opinion. I've seen it from our first popup and forum I joined - "if you don't do it like me, then you're doing it wrong!" I've researched the Ultimate Hitch since the dealer threw it in as an incentive for our 5th wheel purchase and the only negative reviews I can find are from people who've never used one before. I wonder if the caveman who came up with the wheel got this much crap from other cavemen.

You obviously know nothing. The wheel was invented by a cavewoman. The women had to haul the dead mammoth carcasses home. One innovative gal came up with the Ultimate Mammoth carrier to save them from the intense labor carrying a 3 ton dead animal 10-20 miles through hungry Saber Tooth Cat infested country. She was shunned by the clan because even though the men never saw it work, they dismissed it as something that would never work. Although there are a few cave drawings of this "woman wheel" the idea was banned and not until thousands of years later did it come back when a real man figured it out. Moral is, real men don't use lightweight hitches.

Yes it can. If you look at the videos on their website you see them installing it on a MorRyde pin box.

Is MorRyde an air ride pin box? I like this idea but not going to get rid of my airborne, I tow so nice with it. I am tired of the superglide weight when removing the hitch.

You must not know about the re design of the Ultimate since when some towing heavy have actually bent their hitches. Andersen said the re design (beefing up) was because a few hitches bent while hard braking towing heavy.

I have always said I thought the Andersen is a quality built product but I have always said the hitch would be good for the 12-14K RV. Seems I have been proven right by Andersen.

You seemed to have missed your calling. I can't understand why the industry does not look to you for all their answers being so all-knowing.

You think it's ok to run overweight because you know more than truck mfg. but think the Andersen is over-rated because you know more than they do.

Maybe you should do some independent testing on your own to prove your point instead of spouting of what you "think" you know.

With all your knowledge you are a much greater man than me, I bow to you sir!

Chucking.... I got none pulling with my little 2500HD! Underweight on the axles though!

Seems that the Andersen is spilt. Those that have actually used them like them. Those that haven't, don't! Go figure.

Happy with mine!

Been awhile since I looked at this thread. It would appear I missed out on some fun conversations!

My buddy that has one of these for pulling a 21K toy hauler behind his megacab dually is still happy with it.

"You think it's ok to run overweight because you know more than truck mfg."

Are you saying my truck is overweight some way that actually matters? If so please tell me where that may be. Front axle rating6,000#, actual 5,460. Rear axle 9,750#, actual 9,580. Combined around 37,800#, actual 32,540. Where am I over?

Remember you can always block me.

"I bow to you sir!" I thank you for your submission.
