Hitch discussion

I really was enjoying the discussion about the Andersen hitch and was disappointed to see it closed. I'm in the search mode as I am getting ready to buy a Toyota Sienna minivan and an R-Pod 177. I need to cut weights wherever possible and the Andersen is light. Those who traded barbs hurt me in my pursuit of knowledge.
I don't know how to post properly so any instruction will be appreciated.
Thank you.

We bought FIL's 21 'tt last spring, pulled it 2x w/o wdh, it was ok. I ordered the andersen hitch and we used it the rest of the summer. It was a big difference, pulled much better. We have no experience with any other brand, but we love this one. Simple to install, simple to use, we back up with it, no noise that people mention with other styles. Built in sway control, would highly recommend this hitch.

Wd- 40

I stopped using WD-40 when I found out about "PB Blaster"
Its about ten times better than WD-40!
Then if you want one of the best types of pentatrating oil, get some "Kroil" (the oil that creeps) Works good on all kinds of things and is a little expensive but well worth it when you need it. jdadoug

I'm pulling a vibe 6501 with my Kia Sedona minivan and I use the fastway E2 hitch. The vibe is about 300 lbs heavier then the Rpod. I have found the hitch to work very well even with strong cross winds. Does the Sienna have the tow package on it?

We have the Anderson and it works great. I would highly recommend. Super easy to hook and unhook, and light weight. No problems with it at all. We have Been using since may.

Looks like you are posting just fine. Just try select the best forum for your topic and if it belongs elsewhere a moderator can move it. Lots of tricks of the trade can be found in Forums 101. I still use this myself even after being here for a while now.


Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
