Anderson hitch looks very attractive to eliminate porpoising we experience with our Equalizer. Nearly 100K miles on the Equalizer and Quick-Bite 7700 coupler, we love them both. Just a great setup for us. But good grief, get on a road with frost heaves, we just slow down after bounding up and down madly

Back to the OPs question, replace the old coupler with a Quick-Bite, you'll never look back.

I have had many trailers with various couplers over the years - the best that I have found are made by 'Buyers'. I now have converted all my trailers (8) to them. I buy them through Northern. The are cast iron and lock automatically, and are very positive locking.
The old style I found on my Airstream (and is still sold) I would not trust - they are never tight and solid as the Bull Dog as mentioned above (which are very solid) and Buyers - which I prefer for ease of use.
First thing I would do (and did), is change out the Airstream coupler - cheep insurance.

It is not for everyone, but one person or two seem to think it is their responsibility to repeat over and over their opposition to the Andersen hitch. If those who enjoy a good experience repeated their story, the negatives would be lost in the avalanche. Most peope enjoy traveling more than complaining.

I too have the Anderson hitch. We just came back from a 5 week trip to sunny Florida. I still have the Airstream atwood coupler but I also have a Quik-bite to install. I like the Anderson and plan to continue with it. I have put about 20k miles towing using the Anderson with no complaint.
