Also Made in the USA.

Been using mine for over two years. It's a great and quiet setup. The new trailer is an underslung coupler so I will be buying a new Blue Ox WDH designed for underslung couplers....

The Andersen Hitch is noiseless and weighs less with no spring bars!

WDH Hitch Question?

I bet it's noiseless. No way I'd take that over a Blue Ox. Just not as solid a setup.... And if you are worried about your wdh setup's weight, you need a bigger tow vehicle with more payload.

Worked fine for two trailers and three years. Best handling lash-up I have ever had.

Not to argue SouthCo, but as I cannot speak well or bad of the Blue Ox setup without trying it, why do you state the Andersen is not "as solid a setup"? Have you any experience with the Andersen?

The torque on the a frame mount must be a lot to try and use a chain to apply down force on the front of the tow vehicle. Murff no offense was meant. Your original post didn't say you used it. Lots of people post without first hand experience. So if you use it and like it that is another good option along with the Blue Ox that is in fact quiet.

No problem and no offense taken. The Andersen is in my sig line with my TV & TT. With my tow rig on the edge of the payload, I like that the Andersen only weighs 60 pounds.

I have used an EZ Lift, and both versions of the Reese Dual Cam. If my trailer was more than 30 feet or weighing more than 10,000 lbs, I think I would use something a bit beefier than the Andersen.

I can't see sig lines on my phone with TapaTalk. I assumed it wasn't the best on a bigger camper and I appreciate your honest opinion. But you agree that noise isn't a necessary factor in wdh hitches with sway control. Thank you. Thanks for the honest feedback sir.

We all benefit from honest feedback....
