RE: Trailersavor vs Anderson Ultimate

No I am just an fellow RV owner like the rest on here. The OP asked a question comparing these hitches so I am giving my opinion and helping people that do not know there are other options out there besides the standard heavy expensive fifth wheel hitches. I know you don't have to be perfectly level or perfectly straight but there are significant limitations compared to a cup and ball. I can be way off in both directions and it still just comes on and off the ball with ease because I don't have to drive into or out of the hitch. Some of the places we go this becomes a problem for my friends. This is the real world of off road camping - not paved resorts. It's funny though, anytime I tell people positive feedback about this hitch it causes an argument. Enjoy folks just my 2 cents and experience with this hitch.

RE: Trailersavor vs Anderson Ultimate

No doubt the BD3 is an awesome hitch and has some articulation. The drawbacks are that it weighs 160 lbs, is over $2k and you need to be pretty level and straight with the trailer to hook-unhook. With the Anderson you can be un level and at 90 deg to your trailer and still hook - unhook with ease. It also rides great going down the road with no airbags to deal with. Extremely simple, easy to use and easy to remove.

RE: Trailersavor vs Anderson Ultimate

I have the Anderson steel version. I have had it on two different 5ver toy haulers with no issues. 16400 GVWR and 18000 on my current trailer. This hitch works incredibly well. I ditched my 150lb+ slider hitch and will never go back. I can hookup and unhitch at any angle making it very nice when unhooking during camping. So easy to hitch up knowing the ball is inside the receiver and no issue of wondering if your lock bar captured the king pin or not. It also rides better going down the road than any of my friends even with their air boxes. Since the trailer articulates on a ball there is freedom in all directions. Some people are just afraid of change. Anderson designed this and stands behind the product with a 20k rating. Far superior in every aspect IMO.
