This is the Andersen for rails, the only version I'd recommend. It is available many places, but can be seen, ordered, and reviewed at E-trailer.

I have been checking out Anderson hitches. The have 3 models. There is the gooseneck mount, the toolbox model, and the rail mount model. Which model is recommended? I already have a gooseneck hitch ball.

Then that would be the one with the gooseneck connection . What kind of weight are you towing ? I have the rail mount steel version . I already had the frame adapter that goes to the OE puck system for another hitch that took the standard rails . I would recommend the rail mount ,but you would need bed rails if you don't already have them. The one pictured above is the one I have. Wouldn't tow with anything else after having the Andersen , having towed with both conventional ,and the Andersen

I will be towing a Forest River Sierra 5th Wheel. It weighs just over ten thousand pounds. I think it is 10,010.

When installing the Andersen adapter make sure the ball mount adapter on your kingpin is facing forward for additional cab clearance.
