Anyone use Trailair Flex Air?

Appears to be a newer version of the Trailair Tri-Glide.

Anyone use this version?

Flex Air Pin Box - Towing

So, is anyone using this new version? Wondering if it is better than the Tri-Glide. Thinking of replacing my standard Trailair (air bag) with it. Bad chucking going on now.

I use the Trail-Air. Have had it for nearly 6 years. It really takes the bounce of the trailer away from the truck. Don't know much about the new version.

I use the Trail Air with Tri Glide. It removes all chucking and smooths out the bumps.

I am using the Trail Air pin box also with good results. I would say that the Trail Air pin box has eliminated about 90 to 95% of the bounce that I use to have with my 5er.

Now the new design I believe is trying to answer the Demco Glide ride or the Mor-Ryde pin boxes by combining both of their features and the Trail Air pin box features together.

I would be concerned over how long would the rubber pad will last on the new designed pin box if the box has a lifetime warranty than I would consider the new style.

I was under the impression that this item had been out since last fall. Got an email from Lippert saying it had not been issued yet.

I think I will wait awhile and see how it stacks up against the trailair triglide. Then see which one I get.

If you are having a lot of chucking they may be another problem. Are you level when hooked up? Nose high or low can cause problems.

It has always looked level, but I will check to be sure, when we get it out of storage.

It may look low in the front, but it does have a drop frame.
