Happy travels
That's crazy!!! We paid 379 with free shipping for ours last year. They are totally scamming people with that price.

Yes welcome to Canada. I tried buying the RAS here and it's $675.00. Ordered direct and got it delivered with tax and duty for over $200.00 less.

Well, just completed the first major journey using the Andersen 'No sway' hitch. Pulled the TT like a dream on our 600km trip. Absolutely no sway at all traveling along the highway with a crosswind or being passed by 18 wheelers. Easy to attach and disengage at the start and end of the journey. No clunking, banging or groans from the hitch assembly. All in all, a very positive experience. Another 600km leg to go before the return1200 kms to home.

Hutch,

We also loved our Andersen and had about 1000 problem free miles. I am glad you are enjoying your hitch! Safe travels!

I have had my Andersen for over a year now and 6000 miles. No problems, works great and quiet and clean too. Previously had a Reese WD and sway control, greasy and noisy.

I finally had my TV and TT weighed as we were leaving for the beach a couple of weeks ago. The results are: Front Axle= 3,300 lbs, Rear Axle = 3,580 lbs, TT Axle = 5,460 lbs. These weights represent my rig set up actually for camping with the family on board and a full tank of gas. The rig was dead level with 3/8 inch compression on the bushings and the rear axle is 420 lbs under the max weight of my rear axle. To recap my TV is an F-150 with the max tow and the TT is a 2013 Gray Wolf 26 DBH. So far I have towed 2,200 miles this year with no bounce or sway and we are leaving in two days on another 800 mile trip. I have been very pleased with the hitch thus far and hope it continues performing as well as it has. Also, I do inspect the coupler each time I unhook and there is not any unusual wear.

Long Story Short,

My wife will not drive while towing. With every hitch I have ever used there would be some movement of the trailer. The Andersen pulled better than any other hitch I have ever used, but there would still be the occasional movement back there. After researching the ProPride it claimed to completely eliminate the movement back there and the reviews backed it up. The thought of my wife sharing the driving was worth the price to me. After using the ProPride it lives up to its reputation. When we drive 1200 miles to a vacation spot it will not take me the first 2 days to recover from the drive now that my wife and I share the driving.

The Andersen is absolutely top notch. I would recommend it to others. If we were still the short trip and seasonal campers we used to be I would never have considered a different hitch. We changed our campinh style and having the abilty to share the driving has made camping much more enjoyable for me.

I can see the advancements in this hitch but it is still a friction based sway control and any sway is unacceptable. I have been using a Hensley Arrow since 1999 and the only other hitch I would consider would be the Pro Pride. These hitches allow no sway absolutely 0. My 2 cents opinion

How much do the Hensley Arrow and Pro Pride hitches weigh? Not only does my 120 lb wife share in the driving, she can also hitch up our rig because the Andersen is so lite. She never did either when we had our old EZ system with two sway bars.
