Thanks. That would probably be the one for me also. Sounds like the trailer frame is 5-6". The 350 is good for 14K and 1.4K for tongue weight so you have room to grow.

Took off a Reese and changed to an Andersen, really like the improvement and cleanliness.

I am going to go with the Andersen. The camper is not due in for 4 more weeks and the dealer said I could keep it there as long as I want. I will order it through amazon soon. The hitch looks pretty easy to install.

Check eBay for it. Use a dealer that allows the "make offer" option. Ask for 5-10% off the listed price.

Also use the fitment guide and/or call Andersen directly to make sure you order the correct model for your TV/TT.

It is easy just need a torque wrench that allows for 90-150 lbs

I took mine to a local school leveled it and followed the video on Anderson's site. I did call Jason from Anderson to get the right hitch. Also once it is installed don't worry if the brackets pop forward Jason said this is normal but hardly feel the trailer now and so easy to use. See my photo of the bracket below

When installing mine I tightened the set screws down, removed them and drilled the dimple with a bit about 1/2 the screw diameter. I also found that after making the first set-up without weight then dropping the weight onto the ball I had to adjust to a different bolt hole. All in all pretty easy, good help from Jason as needed. The pop when the brackets snap forward is disconcerting until you realize what it was.
Good luck and enjoy.
