racerx you have to remember that most 5ers are structurally heavier in the pin box area than the light wt 5er's and can no doubt take the extra strain.

What is the big advantage to the Anderson? Looks to me like it would be much more difficult to hitch.

The original poster,
I did not intend to highjack this thread, I only posted, because if you were going to get a gooseneck adapter no matter what was said, that this adapter could be a viable choice. I hope someone jumps in here and answers your original question. I apologize for the highjacking.

I am not stating that this is better than a fifth wheel hitch by no means. I have it because my 1 ton already had the gooseneck ball in the bed and I did not want to add rails. I have Nothing to compare the ultimate hitch with because I have NEVER used a standard fifth wheel hitch. I do have the Flagstaff light 5th wheel. I have thought about replacing this hitch with the standard fifth wheel hitch, however, have talked to several different dealerships, and have basically been told it's a good hitch. I do like that I just back under the trailer, push the the retract button on the legs and push in on the locking pin and off I go. No pull test required. No possibility of dropping the trailer on my bed.
