Well, I finally got to tow with my truck, after having it for more than 3 months!
Thanks to RancherTX, I bought a gooseneck ball and the Andersen hitch, and made the "conversion" to my Voltage (est empty wt 14.5K, and GVW of 19K.) I took it out yesterday for a whopping 15 mile tow (from one campground to the next) and had NO issues. I'm still not completely comfortable with it (just a personal comfort level), but it definately performs! It feels a little different, and is more of a pain to physically hook up. I've not towed with a GN type hitch before, so I had fun lining up the holes, although I did manage to get lined up in less than 5 minutes.
I think the biggest "problems" I had were: 1) how high I had to lift the rig to hook up, and 2) stressing out about the pinbox hitting the sides of the bed in a tight turn. Thankfully, neither concern had any major justification, and the only issues I ran into were due to my towing ability/skills.
Just like ranchertx, I stand ready to answer your questions about this hitch, and my towing experiences with it.
