RE: Andersen hitch

I used one for years, and it worked exactly as advertised. It brought the front of my tow vehicle back to the unloaded height, and it prevented sway. Not sure what else there is to say about it. There will always be those who stubbornly resist or argue against something new. I used a Equilizer brand hitch for 8 years, and the Andersen worked and behaved just like the Equilizer minus the weight, noise and grease. I towed a 34’ 7500 TT with a Tundra and a 2500 Ram Diesel.

RE: Lifting fifth wheel

I ended up up having it lifted by a local spring shop. They added 4” by 2” steel below the frame, added cross bracing and welded the spring hangers to the new steel. Did a very neat and clean job. I’m still 2” nose high, but I can now get in the driveway. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1D1yl81R_N5ruO5qs0EWhlQwavU2RQEhI/view?usp=drivesdk

RE: Lifting fifth wheel

I’ve looked at lowering the truck. The 2500 Ram trucks have coil spring rear suspensions with no blocks to take out. I’ll need to measure, but I think I’m at 12’6”” so I should have room.

Lifting fifth wheel

My 2019 fifth wheel that towed level with my 2007 Ram 2500 2wd, now tows 5” nose high with my 2018 Ram 2500 4wd. I’ve adjusted the pin box all the way up, and couldn’t raise it higher if I could due to bed clearance. I plan on taking it to a local commercial spring shop to have it lifted 4”-5”. They said they do them all of the time, and they plan on welding a new sub frame on and reattaching the spring hangers. Has anyone ever “had” a bad experience lifting a trailer? It’s fairly obvious that higher it sits, higher the center of gravity becomes, but has this ever caused anyone an issue? They are charging $600 which sounds reasonable considering the work involved.

RE: Upgraded my tow vehicle, do I still need a WDH?

I would look at getting a Andersen hitch. With a small trailer like you have it would work perfectly. Very light, no grease, no noise. Do you have a link or picture? Andersen hitch This is the one I had with my last TT. It worked as well as the Equilizer hitch I had prior without the weight and mess. I towed a 8000 TT behind a Tundra, then a Dodge Ram 2500.
