The AAU is fantastic. Set up could not be easier. My maiden voyage was 1500 miles and it was a great experience. If Andersen wanted to make one improvement they could include a set screw attachment for a torch wrench.
Nice hitch easy to install and pulls quiet down the road. Only used it once so can't speak to the durability yet. Mine came with the funnel and I am glad because it would be harder to line up without it. Another great Anderson product.
Excellent product. I have a 2016 Ram 3500 with a 6 ' bed. I tow a 2017 26RL Reflection. Very easy to install/use. Very quite smooth ride. I love it. For the record I am a first time 5th wheeler. But have been RV ing for 28 years. 👍 I highly recommend this hitch🇺🇸
Received my hitch on time as Andersen said. Finally put it in. Pulled my 5th wheel today. Works as good or not better than Andersen claims. This is a super hitch. The only recommendation I could make to Andersen is the tool you will need. They do not show this on their video. Being a rancher, I already had most of the tools, but if you want to put it in when it arrives you will need the following. a 1/4 inch Allen wrench that can be torqued to 40 lbs. a 5/16th socket, and a 5/16 socket for self-tapping screws. I use to have a Reese hitch with rails that I could go from a goose neck and removing that go to a 5th wheel. Now I do not have to do this. You will have to have a goose neck ball in the bed. I have a long bed and I am extremely... Read More
After spending a couple of weeks researching 5th wheel set ups, from manual sliders to auto sliders to air bag units, and noting their restrictions of use in certain applications with short box pickups, the Andersen Aluminum Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection became a clear favorite. The ease of installation "takes about a minute to install or remove" and weighs approximately 35 lbs., so can be stored in the trailer storage compartment. Another selling factor is the ease and range (angles) of hookup to the trailer are infinite. You do not have to be within 10 degrees and level like some of the other hitches. I highly recommend this product, for ease of use, ease of installation and removal for storage, just a well built and well engineered... Read More
Looks like it will work very nice, have not got a chance to tow with it do to winter weather. I upgraded truck to a dually long bed and I sure like the weight and size of the Andersen hitch much better than the autoslider in my short bed.
