I recently installed the Andersen WDH on my 17.5 CB 2500 Bigfoot
. After researching just about every WDH on the planet I, chose the Andersen for the following reasons.
1. With their chain configuration set up, you can position the brackets that attach to both sides of the frame anywhere from a minimum of 16" from the coupler to any distance you need to fit in between the LPG tanks, batteries, shroud etc. And the brackets simply bolt on without the need to drill or weld them onto the frame.
2. The total weight
of all components is significantly less than any of the bar systems.
3. You can store all of the components except the hitch head when not using them in a shoe box.
4. This hitch performs quieter, smoother and with virtually no problem when backing up or making tight turns, unlike most of the bar systems.
5. Once the components are installed for your trailer, removing and reinstalling the hitch when parking at an RV park etc. when travelling is a lot easier than the bar systems, even my wife can do it.

All the best,
