I read that you can't use a MorRyde pin box with an Anderson hitch. Then read latter that you can. The latter version was from MorRyde. Too much internet confusion.

I have the MorRyde and plan to get the Andersen.
BTW, Pullrite now has a very similar Superlite hitch but they reverse the ball and the socket positions. Haven't seen a price yet.

Yeah, I have had my Andersen / Mor-ryde combo for a year now and have towed almost 20,000 miles with no issues and I'm quite happy with it. When I bought the Andersen I called because I was also confused. In their video demo of the hitch the trailer HAS a Mor-ryde yet the internet (and maybe even somewhere on their website although I can't remember now) was even then a buz with the information that you should use nothing but an OEM pin box. They told me I certainly could continue to use my Mor-ryde but that it wasn't as necessary as with a traditional hitch setup.

They are extremely helpful so I would just contact them direct and ask the question rather than rely on what you read here. If you do, come back and let us know

I'm new here. Don't have a 5'er yet but will sometime soon. I have been researching like crazy though!

I contacted both Anderson and Pullrite with questions.

In short, the Anderson can use any of the air or rubber cushion pin boxes. But he also said if I don't have said pin box try it without it first as they are not needed.
He also said regardless if you get the gooseneck ball mounted or the rail mounted unit a method to attach safety chains will have to figured out.

The folks at Pullrite said thier units are just now hitting store shelves. The retail price is listed at $890.68.

The only bad testimonials I have heard about Anderson's Ultimate hitch is from people who have never had one. The large majority of people who do have them love them and say no cushion devices are needed.

Certainly if hitch weight is an issue you can take a truck like my 2015 Ram 2500 6.4 Hemi Mega Cab short bed with the 5th wheel prep kit and using the Aluminum hitch add less than 75 lbs to the mix including the center pin and safety chains. And get it all done for under $1,000.00. No brainer for me when I go to buy a trailer.
