Anderson Weight Distribution Hitch

Hi there, does anyone have the Anderson WDH for their 17 foot Casita? Was the initial installation fairly simple. Were there any modifications needed? How simple is it to set up once installed? Thankyou

Just make sure you get the correct frame brackets, the "universal 3/4/5/6" brackets do not work as well as the one made for your particular frame size.

Got it = very simple - LOVE it - added 3 links to each chain and mounted the brackets just behind the propane tank cross bar so they would not slide. No welding needed. Adjusts very easily and performs as you want it to - a home run for sure - get it and forget it.

I have the Anderson and I use it with my 17 foot Casita and my Tacoma X-Runner. I love it. I followed the directions closely and it all works well. I did drill a deep pocket for the set screws, and no sliding. I had to take three links off, but that was simple.

It is light and easy to install and remove. I do keep a 1/2 inch ratchet in the box with the hitch to make tensoning the chains easier. I also have painted marks on the chains to use as a reference while tensoning.
