MORryde & Andersen Ultimate

Our 2018 Jayco Eagle 28.5 RSTS HT (10,130 GVWR) has a MORryde kingpin rated at 18,000LBS that mates with an Andersen Ultimate 5th wheel hitch. The Andersen is rated at 24,000LBS GVWR / 4,500LBS tongue weight. Maxed out, we're only looking at about 50% rated tongue weight and we'll run out of payload before we run out of capacity on this setup. We've been very happy with this setup. The bonus is the Anderson is only about 40#, so you can take in/out easy! I wouldn't trade it for anything!

Good Luck

We use an Andersen Ultimate Hitch with our MORryde kingpin. The truck has a B&W turnover ball for gooseneck. After this configuration, I'm envisioning a gooseneck "extension" from the kingpin to the ball. I understand there are kingpin adapters that allow this type of extension (like a horse trailer), but I've read it can cause undue stress on the 5th wheel frame. I suppose if I was looking for that type of connection, I would check with the manufacturer to see if they offered it from the factory or if it voids the warranty. I've seen a few nasty torqued out trailer pics. Do your research.

Good Luck!

My hitch is late....got a message it may have been damaged in transit. Lot of time to think about this so I called Moryde and had a good conversation with them about Superlite and the AUH setup.. They want their kit #RPB 77-006 installed because it adds additional support on the load bearing rods and the rubber snubber that are supporting much of the load. The kit has additional nylon blocks that the rods run thru so they are not taking all the load because of the additional 2" added forward/rearward of the central hitch pin location. The bottom plate is also thicker to add additional support. It DOES NOT lock up the benefits of the Moryde hitch I was told ...but I cant see how it couldn't impact its performance somewhat. I included Big1's pic of his install...hope this is ok Big1...as it is a good shot of the way the ball adapter has moved the load away from the centralized hitch pin location forward a couple of inches. Not using this kit can shorten the life of the rubber snubber and possibly damage your pinbox. There are many testmony's here of miles traveled with no incidents without this addition on the Moryde pinbox and the AUH or Superlite hitch....just wanted to post this to sort out some confusion about either needing it or not according to Moryde.

Yeah, no problem when I call Pullrite they told me it will work so it will be interesting to see what they say and if I have to install the added hardware I can do that let me know what they say.

That kit goes on something like this in the pic here that might be
a little different. https://www.amazon.com/MOR-ryde-RPB7.../dp/B007XY9YGC

Yep Big1...I should have checked the part #out before I posted that up. I'm starting to wonder if the folks you talk to at the manufactures really know what they are talking about. I specifically told him the pullrite superlite and he acknowledged that hitch but the pic you are showing isnt anything like it but is a gooseneck extension. This is confusing to say the least.

I totally agree the couple of times that I use mines was perfect I love it and compare to the B&W I had is like night and day as far as weight. I can take it out and put it in all day and that's is what I wanted but right now I don't have a need to remove it out of my bed but if I need to I can.

Big1 I have no adapter plate and have been pulling for 12 months with no issues. The dealership installed the hitch and said nothing else is required or needed. Pullrite told me the same thing and guarantees it.

Thank you sir, and this is what I gather so do you still like it?

Yes, I love the Pullrite Superlite. I have no reason to even consider a bulky, heavy fifth wheel hitch. If it wasn't the Pullrite, it would be the Anderson Ultimate, either one. But so happy with the Pullrite Superlite. So easy to hitch and unhitch, and know it's locked in when it's hitched.

I'm kinda out of my lane here, but has anyone looked at Blue Ox Superlite 5th Wheel hitches? They have an adapter plate that hooks to the gooseneck ball or directly to the bed and are modular. 3 pieces that come apart, weigh 180-210 lbs total. I looked at them when I was thinking of buying a 5er.

Thanks for all the great information. Does anyone have experience with the F350 Ford hitch prep system? We currently pull our 2017 Pinnacle 36FBTS with a Pull Rite 18K slider I like having the peace of mind the cap wil not bust out my truck window when going 90 degrees or more(which we have had to do periodically). I love the hitch but do not like how much it weighs. I always have to ask for help removing when I need the bed. I like the look and weight of the Anderson Ultimate but it does not slide. We are looking at the 2020 F350 short bed. Will I have an issue with the hitch not being a slider? Thanks in advance.

My dealer added the hitch prep to my 2017 shortened. I use an Andersen pulling my Eagle HT without issue. The Andersen is installed with the cone facing forward.
