I would rather have a solid pin box and an air ride hitch. Less stress on upper pin box supports and air hitch stays with truck.

I have the hensley ts-3 on my air- bag hitch with the mor-ryde hitch on my montana.I bought the hensley for another 5th wheel that had a fixed hitch and the hensley totally elimanated the jerking and chucking. With the mor-ryde i probably don't get any benefit because of the ts-3 air-bag hitch on truck. The hensley calms everything down on the truck and now i have just had the independent suspension installed on my 5th wheel by mor-ryde for the best ride possible .Ican travel 600 miles in a day now and not feel beat up.

I am being told that only sidewinder or the sidewinder air will work in my truck (2014 Dodge 2500 diesel with extended cab and rambox). For some reason this setup is one of the few that will work with the short bed and high sides on this vehicle. Very frustrating.

I have the airborne pin box with full airride on the truck9no leaf springs) and I can't be happier. Lippert reminds me a lot of Microsoft, never put out a complete product, always something wrong with it. JMHO.
