Andersen Manufacturing Rapid Hitch

The revolutionary and extremely popular aluminum adjustable ball mount systems.
The Rapid Hitch - This is the revolutionary aluminum adjustable ball mount that has taken the hitch world by storm. No ball mount is more versatile or easier to use than the Rapid Hitch. Its adjustability allows you to tow easily and safely by keeping your trailer parallel to the ground, maintaining a more stable towing experience.

The Rapid Hitch is made of an aluminum super alloy that will NEVER RUST! The aluminum looks great by itself, so there is no need for paint or chrome that can chip and peel. To keep the shine, you simply need to polish the hitch from time to time and you will have a high gloss surface that looks brand new.

Another benefit to this aluminum super alloy is that it is light and surprisingly strong. It only weighs 15 lbs. with the greaseless ball option making it easy to handle and adjust. It is V5 certified with a strength rating of 10,000 lbs. and 1,500 tongue weight with the 2 5/16" steel ball. The Rapid Hitch is built for the long haul...the real world where ease of use and strength really count.

The Rapid Hitch is available in three drop sizes - the 3 1/2" drop/rise, the 5 1/2" drop/rise, and a full 10" drop. The 10" drop is recommended for lifted vehicles and has adjustment options from approximately 4" of drop to the full 10" drop. The standard 5 1/2" drop/rise is designed to fit all factory standard pick-up trucks. However, we have discovered that in some instances the standard Rapid Hitch will drag on the ground in a dip, so we have added the SUV Rapid Hitch to help eliminate this situation. The shorter SUV Rapid Hitch works best with most light trucks, ½ ton trucks, and SUV’s. A quick and easy way to judge what size drop you need is to measure from the ground up to the inside top of your 2" receiver tube. If the measurement is 20" or less - the 3 1/2" drop is for you. If the measurement is between 20" and 24" you need the 5 1/2" drop. If you measure more than 24" you will need the 10" drop. The tongue heights of your trailers and the suspension on your truck play a part, but in most cases these measurements will give you what you need. If you are unsure, please take your truck to your local dealer for advice.

The Rapid Hitch is the perfect hitch for anyone who tows multiple trailers. You can flip the double ball over, change the drop to a rise, or adjust the height of the drop all by simply removing the hitch pin and putting it back in place. With the easy height adjustment you can make sure you are keeping your trailer level. With the 2" and 2 5/16" ball combo, you cover most trailers on the road today. We also have a combination ball that includes the 1 7/8" and 2" ball. The 3 common ball sizes (i.e. 1 7/8", 2" & 2 5/16") are available individually if desired. The various balls are easily changed by removing a hidden pin which attaches the ball to the ball housing. (See instructions for further details.)

When only the best will do...you need the Rapid Hitch – The easiest to use and most versatile ball mount system available today.

All Rapid Hitch sizes have a 10,000 lb. GTWR and 1,500 lb. tongue weight - limited by ball capacity.
