  1. Lionel Baars

    I’ve been using the Andersen Weight Distribution Hitch for two years now. I have found the WDH to be of good quality and safe reliable performance. When using the WDH for the first time I couldn’t believe how planted the van and car felt. I still experience crosswind sway but nowhere near as it has been in the past. I would totally recommend the Andersen Weight Distribution Hitch for peace of mind and a more enjoyable towing experience. I purchased my hitch from TitanRV, it arrived very quickly after the order was placed and the right product for my needs was addressed via a quick phone call to TitanRV. I’m very happy with my purchase and the service from TitanRV.

  2. Julie Wood

    Finally got my Andersen hitch set up. Wow, what a difference to towing my van. Bought this on recommendation of another and I’m so glad I did. Had to change my Akko hitch to a fixed coupling but so be it. Thanks guys for a wonderful product. One question, I have trailer stability on my car, a 2017 ranger, should I turn that off?

  3. Andrew & Rebecca Harris

    Ashley, just thought we would drop you a note about how impressed we are with your company.

    1st a quick reply from you re the cone wear.
    2nd we took your advise and ordered the upgrade kit Monday 16/1 after 5pm
    3rd You shipped very quickly – Wed 18/1
    4th We received it in Townsville Fri 20/1 (even though the Bruce Hwy was cut most of the week)

    The 1st Andersen hitch is approx. 10 yrs old and has done over 50,000 klms, so the cost of the upgrade was not unexpected.

    We have recommended the Andersen to many people and a couple have had the squealing cone issue that you replaced no questions asked.

    I work in a customer service role and get many cranky customer calls so that is why I wanted pass on a “very happy customer” to you and your company.

    Have a prosperous 2023 – Andrew

    Thank you
    Andrew & Rebecca Harris

  4. Ashley

    Thanks for the nice feedback Chris. So many owners who have the Andersen Hitch swear by them.

  5. Chris Dally

    A product that actually works. Having been passed by many b doubles and road trains the van has now swayed an inch out of line. The staff and their service is brilliant with a spare being delivered way faster than I expected.

  6. Pat

    Purchased an Andersen weight distribution kit when I purchased my last Van, 24 months ago, I thought the tow vehicle was doing a good job without them, I finally used the Andersen weight distribution on our recent lengthy vanning trip and could not believe the much better handling than previous, will always use them, great product.

  7. Eric

    I purchased my Andersen Hitch a few years ago elsewhere and have been using it for some time. “Experts” tell me i do not need a weight distribution hitch with my combination. What i do know is the difference with and without the Andersen Hitch. A far smoother, stress free easy drive with the hitch connected. It apparently isn’t needed but i use it every time.

  8. Robert

    A big thank you to Anderson Hitches in the USA and Titan RV in Australia My hitch started making noises when turning, even though the hitch is second hand to me and over ten years old After googling ,the problem was found to be a worn friction bush Emailed Andersen hitches in USA, they contacted Titan Rv aus who in turn contacted me to check some model details Titan send out a replacement bush after checking I had the tools to remove the old bush and fit the new one , which was posted Express that day all at no charge to me Great work Andersen and Titan RV

  9. Ashley

    Thanks Mick, nice feedback on the Andersen hitch. Everyone who has one swears by them.

  10. Mick

    Couldn’t believe the difference this set up made, the van just sits there and doesn’t move ,all I can say it’s unbelievable, what a difference it makes ,you can set the WD from basically nothing to what ever suits you with out jeopardising the AS at all
    What I like about it it’s purely a mechanical device and no electronics involved in the AS so reliability when it’s need most can’t fail, top job guys 👌👌👌👌👌

  11. Bob Whalan

    Had mine on the Ranger and 22 Ft van since 2016. Best purchase i ever made. About to change to a 2021 Dmax so we will see how that performs. I wouldnt use any othe WDH system.

  12. Ashley

    Good to hear Fritz. Everyone who has the Andersen hitch just loves it.

  13. Frits Jansen (verified owner)

    Just fitted the Andersen Hitch. I can not believe the difference in the handling of the car and the feel when towing the caravan. Definitely no more fear. Only tried it out for about 40 kilometres but the difference is amazing on the bumpy roads of South Gippsland.Thank you Titan rv for getting me the hitch quickly.

  14. David perkins

    Brilliant I have hade mine for 4 years
    So easy to attach and quite love the fact it all stays on the van great product

  15. Ian Brown (verified owner)

    Hi
    Thanks for your prompt service in getting this order dispatched and its prompt arrival it enabled me to set it up and give it a test run before heading off on a longer trip.
    I was very impressed with the handling of the combination car and caravan. All the measurements worked out good with virtually not having to make any changes to the set up as it was when assembled by the instructions.

    Thanks

    Regards
    Ian Brown

    I have had a Andersen weight distribution hitch with sway control for 3 years and would not use anything else, the best on the market in my opinion. ???

    Sounds more like it should be compulsory, rather than those breakaway systems, prevention is better than cure!
