VERY smart wife! (Says the wife who picked Stone as well ) The hitch is very easy to hook up. I can do it if needed. I am technically competent so could technically do a standard style WDH, but I'm 5'4" and 120#. The bars scare me. I don't have the strength to deal with them and I'm scared I'm going to take off a finger or an arm. The Andersen is much simpler.

And ya, I think we're straight. I'm sure I've got a pic. I'll find it and post.

Just weighed my X213's tongue at 395 lbs , full propane, 1battery, spare tire plus the arms for WDH. The inside is mostly empty. Will weigh again once I load it up. Weight of TT as per yellow sticker is 4326 lbs.

Once you load the trailer you will find a difference. A lot of the stuff in many of the kitchen cabinets, closet, bunk space, front storage compartment, bathroom and waste tanks is forward of the axles. Even without rocks in the underbelly (good one SilverEscape) the tongue weights creep up. Good incentive to go through the trailer at the start of the season and eliminate the stuff you never use.

SilverEscape, I think I'm sold on the Andersen. Most....reviews I can find are pretty positive. Sound like it works the best on lighter trailers like the X213. I've read several reviews where they couldn't tighten it enough to keep the frame brackets from sliding so they had to tack weld those. Have you had any issues with that? Would you guys go with the Andersen again? Thanks for the input
