condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Anderson
I loved using this hitch. I used the "standard" 5th wheel hitch and it weighed about 150 pounds and I had to use a block and tackle to remove it and install it in my truck. Also, with a standard hitch, the RV can move only in two directions as you drive, forward/backward and side to side. So, in some cases the RV is fighting the truck because of this limited movement. BUT, with the Anderson hitch you get a 360-degree range of motion. Towing is smooth AND it only weighs 35 pounds. I can remove it or install it in 10 minutes.
I'm selling this because I no longer have a 5th Wheel and do not need it anymore.
It works perfectly and is in excellent condition. This hitch does require a ball mounted in the bed of the truck so it could tow a gooseneck trailer.
Asking $400.00 OBO (New $1000.00)
What follows is the manufactures description of their product.

The future of 5th wheel trailer hitches, the Andersen Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection is the lightest and most affordable way to connect your 5th wheel trailer to your short bed or long bed truck. Strong, robust, and simple, the Andersen rail mount design and gooseneck design give you an incredibly smooth and quiet ride, unrivaled by any other 5th wheel hitch on the market today.

The ball of the Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection rides inside a greaseless coupler. This means that unlike other fifth wheel trailer hitches for short bed trucks, the Ultimate Connection eliminates dirty hands and mess. Because the coupler rides on a ball, it has more swivel in every direction than all other 5th wheel hitches available. This also gives you the ability to couple or uncouple your trailer on uneven terrain.

By providing a remote cable attached to the coupler, this hitch eliminates the need to climb into the back of your truck to disconnect the hitch from your 5th wheel trailer. With nearly 3" of adjustable height, the Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection is setting a new bar in the industry.
