Due Diligance is a good thing.

Lippert has approved the R GB for the 36CKTS.

Saying that never trust or believe anything on the internet, verify for yourself.

If useing an off set GN ball with the anderson will move the pin weight point back past the rear axel as noted in one post 9 inches, that is alot that has to change the ride puting the weight back that far

Most of us combine the 4" back of offset GB with the 8" forward of the reverse Andersen adapter. The net is only a 4" back of the kingpin. That weight movement is negated because the nose pivot is now forward.

The adaptor can be installed either with the kingpin in front of the adapter's ball hole or behind the ball hole. This has the effect of moving the trailer nose either forward of the top-of-Andersen ball or behind it.

Separately, the Reese or B&W GB extension moves the bed ball 4" towards the tailgate.

For maximum distance from the truck cab, one could use the GB Extension (4" toward the tailgate) PLUS mount the Andersen Adapter with GB socket in front of the king Pin (8" from GB hole to King Pin insert). This combo puts the kingpin 12" back.

If the king box is having issues with bed rail clearance (i.e. truck is too tall), one can choose to move the pivot point and thus have the entire kingbox rotate within the truck bed walls (obviously this is dependent on which kingbox, but it worked for my LCI 1621 compatible). The trick here is to use the GB Extension bedball (4" toward the tailgate) and then REVERSE the normal Andersen adapter mount to have the GB hole BEHIND the kingpin (this moves the trailer 8" toward the truck cab). The net is only a 4" move of the trailer nose toward the cab.(8" minus 4").

This demonstrates the nice adaptability of the Andersen Ultimate hitch. The hitch ball is adjustable up or down from 13" to 19" off bed floor. The above mentioned mounts provide enough forward backward selection that for most of us, no slider is required.

There are 2 other mount possibilities but the two mentioned so far seem to be the most popular.

PS. I've towed my 11,000# trailer 12,800 miles from California to Florida, Texas to Wisconsin in the last 14 months. Trailer and truck tow level (even with my airbags deflated to the minimum 5#). I've made probably 3 or 4 almost 90deg. backins into tight Arizona resort style pack-em-ins with no issues. I continue to be a recommender of this hitch. See my sig for truck etc details.

Anderson 5er hitch and pin box

I have an Anderson hitch on 2016 chevy 2500HD, manufacture requirements are for Mor/ryde pin box with HD bottom plate if looking for a replacement pin box, (RPB72-1621HD-05 pin box, and RPB77-006 bottom plate) for replacing CC factory 1621 pin box, GVW is needed for correct selection. The last number changes as GVW weight increases or decreases. Also if your truck has air bags there is no need for it on pin box. Mor/ryde pin box and correct positioning of king pin adapter make a world of difference. I have the adapter placing the 5er forward and the ride is much better, 50 to 60 Lb in air bags of truck greatly improved ride from East coast to Green Bay Wi. No cab contact issues in this configuration. Call Anderson they are very helpful, and so is Mor/ryde.
I found most Pin box companies do not recommend their pin box and goose neck hitches.

We didn't know what pin box we were going to get either, so we just got the standard Lippert. We have a B&W hitch with the puck mount system. We were really amazed at how smooth the ride was traveling home from the dealer. We also were concerned about cab clearance with our Ford short bed. Second trip out we arrived at an unfamiliar campground and had to blind back in -in the dark- into a site that ran downhill from the road. Had about 3" to spare but got no closer to the cab. We also had no problem getting the rig in our driveway which slopes uphill. That's a pretty tight fit. We compared the Lippert to a friends TrailAir and found the trailAir would give us an additional 2" in clearance.

We had planned to get a Sidewinder pin box, but thinking now we may not need it.
