Andersen Hitch

I have a question about the Andersen Hitch. The website says the tow capacity is 24,000. My 5th wheel (not purchased yet, still dreaming) has GVWR of 22,500. Is this hitch ok to use on my RAM 3500 diesel dually? Or do I need to get a higher (weight) rated hitch? And if I do, what hitch would you recommend?

If 5th wheel GVWR is 22,500# and Andersen Hitch is rated fr 24,000# then hitch rating is 1500# HIGHER then trailers GVWR
Hitch also has a 4500# Pin weight rating



SO YES........

gvw rating is okay. but the pin weight could be over 4500. 2250 is 10% x2= 4500. your at the max already. not enough margin in my opinion
