Question Andersen 5th Wheel hitch

Thought I would start a new thread on the 5th wheel hitch...

Anyone using one? No decision yet, but I am really looking at them!

I'm presently at a CG that has about 30 FW's, I'll look around and see if I can get any feedback on an Anderson 5th hitch being used.

I checked around the CG yesterday, plenty of Reese's and a few B & W's, but didn't run across any Anderson's.

How about posting some pics of the Andersen when you get it ? I've never seen one, and it sounds interesting. Thanks

Glad to hear...I mostly wanted one because of the weight or lack of...43 pounds. Got tired of lugging the old one in and out of the truck.
I went with the rail version because I still have the rails from my existing slider. If this hitch works as good as I hope it will I can see "upgrading" to a turnover ball and remove the rails.
