I am very happy with my Anderson hitch, I have the 3394 model that is rated at 16k trailer and 1600 tongue weight. I am pulling a 39' Outback and the loaded tongue weight is 1200 to 1300lbs, the trailer max weight capacity is 14k. My TV is an F350 srw with ride rite air bags installed.

My primary concern in towing a long trailer was sway control and the Anderson hitch does an excellent job with my current set up.

I chose the Anderson primarily for quick hitching and un-hitching and ease of adjusting weight transfer with changing trailer weights. The hitch is silent during travel and does not need to be removed for tight backing (as is required with some hitches). I was impressed by the anti-sway characteristics after driving in high Kansas winds on multiple occasions.

I will note that the Anderson may not be a good choice if you are relying on the weight transfer aspect of the hitch. I can get my front end near unloaded weight, but not at fully unloaded weight. This hitch will not take the place of a correctly sized tow vehicle.

If you have an over capable tow vehicle, and are looking for an easily adjustable and user friendly hitch that is quiet, the Anderson is a good option. It is not as inexpensive as some hitches mentioned here, but it checked off all of my requirements.
