I hope you get some feedback. There have been a few threads on it and a bunch of interest so it'd be good (especially if anyone can compare to another hitch).

Here's the last review thread I could find...

Just bought the Andersen "No sway" WDH

We have it and used it all last year. DH is really happy with it. We have never had any issues and he says he can hardly tell the camper is back there. We plan to cross the mackinaw bridge this summer with it. That's our true test!

There are people on other forums like the airstream forum who have had considerable issues with wear on the actual trailer receiver due to the way the anderson puts pressure on the hitch latching mechanism. I would personally do a goolge search for anderson hitch issues and see for yourself as the comments are out there.

Seems most of the problems have been bigger trailers.

We towed our surveyor sp 280 all last summer with no problems. It worked very well and was super easy to hitch and unhitch.

We purchased the andersen hitch last year and while apprehensive i liked the concept. It has performed much better than i expected. Easy to hook up and unhook. Great product. We have towed about 1500 to 2000 miles and love it.

Everyone been doing a lot of research on line talking with people in the business so far only really good things about this system the air stream trailer has a different latching configuration so I've been told thus a pinch pointe, at this time I have spoken with Jason from Anderson and was told they don't normally do money back but said he was confident with the product and would honor a 30 day guarantee I would also like to state Jason answered everything I threw at him very professional and courteous, looks like they just made another believer out of me. They have been doing this since I believe he said around 2000 with hitches and around 2008 with weight distribution and sway control. At present they have about 3500 hundred units out with lifetime warranty, my order is in. Will follow up with actual testing myself

We contacted them before we purchased ours and they were great to deal with. We were missing our washers in our kit so they overnighted them totally free of charge.
