I love my Andersen products and this lapse of judgement has nothing to do with the company.
We all speak with out wallets.
As for me, where is my torch and pitch fork. I donít own any Anderson products but if I did they would be recycled.

In this age of instant social connectivity I have to wonder just what they were thinking...
Pretty easy to be disgusted with them!

Good Lord! How does someone who makes camping products do such an ugly thing?

I'm going to ask him for a refund on my Andersen levelers I'm going to send back to him. What a horrible thing to do!

For whatever it's worth - here's Camco's curved leveler. I will be getting a pair of these this weekend.

Sounds like contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Multiple counts.

As Airstreamer's we seek natural beauty and this owner of Anderson Hitches was caught in the act defacing a National Park and a geologic wonder. Shame on his entire family for their terrible behavior. Boycott Anderson Hitches.

I doubt that he really cares about what he did or what we on this forum think. In less than a year everyone will have forgotten and this forum will be saying how wonderful his levelers are he then moves on in life making money off of people who want to enjoy the environment he apparently feels he has the right to satisfy his ego with as he wishes.

A very sad situation I must say.

From the earlier post by "Phillip Jones, Let's all take a big breath. He definitely made a mistake and I suspect he has learned from the public shaming".

I agree about the public shaming and lessons. I would hope none of my many mistakes in life would grow to such a public outcry. That has to be difficult.

I feel for him and his family. There is likely more to the story that we'll never know.

I get stuck at the point where the passersby did try to warn him, did try to stop him and he kept at it. They say once you know better you should do better. If he really wasn't aware of what he was doing people were making him aware so why not stop then.

Then when you realize a real level of responsibility or consequence is going to impact you you make your children complicit. You send them to the parking lot to switch license plates. Really,,,,,, I believe that speaks to the character of a person more than to the level of the mistake he made.

His letter of apology was contrite but still sounded a bit entitled to me. Darn him for being all about himself.

Owner of Andersen Hitches vandalizes in Arches NP

I donít and wonít forget. A certain large Pizza chain has not seen me as a customer fro about 30 years due to their blatant display of a poor customer service attitude toward my family. Apparently they couldnít have been bothered to come over and take our order for over 20 minutes in a fully staffed empty restaurant that affected table service.

I understand this may have started an investigation tying this to a 2016 carving of a 5 foot large ďAnderson ď also at Arches.

Hi, he needs to be Tarred and Feathered, prison time, and bankruptcy. And deported to Mexico. I hope all of his products are returned or scrapped. What he has done can't be un-done.
