Rethinking my 5th hitch

Hey guys, like that title said I'm rethinking my hitch, I have a non-slider B&W Companion hitch and it's not too bad lifting it out of my bed because I normally have a cherry picker. I was lifting it out of my bed late tonight because I have to go to the airport and pick up my wife and some more of the ladies in my church.

So my wife said that they are coming back and they all (4) have extra baggage, so I had to lift it out of my bed to have room by myself, which wasn't too bad but I'm getting older (65).

My question is do they recommend the Anderson Ultimate hitch on a MorRide kingpin or do anybody have one that have the MorRide kingpin? I have been hearing good reviews so I was thinking that maybe, just maybe this will work so what you guys think?

Big1- I don't have the Morryde (darn) but do use the Andersen Ultimate. At 73 it's easy for me to take the hitch off the bed and hang it on the garage wall. Think it weighs about 45 lbs. Be aware that there are installation options with the Andersen....CW installed mine but didn't reverse it. First trip (3600 mi) it took out my topper side rails. CW did however reinstall new Paragon rails with no objections---they knew they screwed up. LOL
Happy RVing,
Jeff

Big1, if I recall they have to install an adapter to the Morryde pin box which unfortunately eliminates the function of the rubber cushions.

I have the BW and yes itís heavy. I made a cart with wheels that is the same height as the tailgate. That way I never pick it up off the floor. Put in on the cart and roll it in the corner of my workshop. Itís an option that works well for me.

Harbor Frieght has 2 truckbed cranes fro $109 to 159. One of those and a furniture dolly. Way cheaper to do and you still have the better hitch.

Rethinking my 5th hitch

UBER, or Lyft. Keep the hitch.

Ok. So thatís not really a fair answer. Iíd keep the hitch though. I bet you couldíve found a way to fit those bags even with the hitch. That being said, it is heavy. I canít even imagine the slider version. Itís awkward to carry and probably a back injury in the making. Iíve resigned to just leaving mine in there unless thereís no other option. Iíve taken it out a few times, but shouldnít have risked it. In fact last time I needed a full truck bed, I rented a truck from HD just to avoid removing it. $35 well spent.

I use the Andersen Ultimate hitch with a MorRyde pinbox. I like the AUH because it's easy to take out when I want my truck bed back. I installed the MorRyde to help the chucking motion and it helped a lot. It doesn't cure the forward and back motion but dampens it enough that I can live with it.

Thank you guys for your comments, I love the B&W hitch, but I had to take it out with little notice I will normally use my HF cherry picker to take it out but I didn't have that time and it was dark out. I don't know I'm still searching, I put it up on Craigslist and I'm going to see if I can sell the B&W hitch.

BTW: Those who are using the AUH do you have any pics, I know that I can go to Youtube and see them but I was wondering do you have any?

Why don’t you call Andersen and talk with them about it. I found them to be honest and helpful.

I also run the Anderson Ultimate and the Morryde pin box that came on my North Point. I love the set up, little to no chucking, easy to remove and install, I highly recommend it

Thank you Hoppy220, I am leaning more toward it I've already put up my B&W hitch on Craigslist and getting ready to put it up on Offer up.

I am thinking of getting the AUH for my F-250 SD and 2018 Eagle, however I notice on the Anderson website that the instructions indicate that the AUH is mounted on bed rails that are parallel to the cab/tailgate. My current rails, using a Reese 16k hitch, are oriented parallel to the truck bed sidewalls. If you have a pic of your installation it would be great, if not, your word is golden.
Thanks,
Don

The AUH steel version mounts like every standard fifth wheel hitch on the standard rails...

I have the puck setup, 4 outside and one for the gooseneck, you can always get the B&W gooseneck install in the middle of the bed.

Before you get the Anderson look at the Reese GOOSEBOX then the only thing you have to remove is the ball. No tools needed.

Lightweight, easy to remove, easy to store, and no rails required.

I like my Andersen, and only wish I had the MORryde kingpin. I am contemplating a move to a Goosebox, only because the cost of the MORryde gets me close to the Goosebox.

The Goosebox may give me a little more room in the bed, but I would still have to keep that area clear towing for trailer swing in turns.
