I really like the Andersen hitch, I converted two years ago and my 1/2 ton Ford pulls real nice with this setup. My first trip using the hitch was over 2,000 miles and I notice a huge difference when passing or being passed by semi's. Plus the fact it seems easier to back into a spot.

I bought one (an Andersen) for my Nitro 31fqsl and didn't have good luck. Of course I'm pushing the limit of the Andersen. I switched to a Reese dual cam with 1500 lb bars and saw a significant improvement.

Sounds like the hyperlites are running it with good results.

I got a reese dual cams (old style )hitch with 1500 bars that I`ll try first . Before I spend more money . Have a equalizer 12k 1200 that I think I can do better . Won`t take much to swap hitches out and try the reese first .

I towed my Dutchmen Kodiak 242resl behinf my Mercedes GL450 for 3 years about 15,000 miles using my Andersen WDH and it lived up to their no sway name and was a very enjoyable tow. Traded up to a 5er last year and run with the Andersen Ultimate. Still have the old Andersen WDH in a box. Probably will sell it if I get a reasonable offer. I am in Dallas TX.

Why would someone in the final stages of arrival (campground, driveway) not just get out and loosen the pressure handle? Expecting high winds or a passing semi, are we? Or just enjoy all the groaning and popping?

First if its working properly there is no noise unlike nearly all the rest. Not sure what a pressure handle is; but if your talking about "load or sprung or WD" bars (?) The equivalent in an Andersen would be to back off in the tension chain nuts and remove the triangle plate. As you enter the park you would stop in the road and run the tongue jack down to take off the pressure to remove the triangle plate. Leaving a park just the reverse. Same work if I did that on my old Reese DC. I've heard a lot of creaking and popping when others drive in and out. Maybe only a few would be so courteous but it would be a neighborly thing to do. I like the folks with the diesels that fire the up around 4 in the morning and take way too long to hookup; idling noisily the whole time. Far more annoying than an occasional creak.
WW.
