Geo T.

Several previous discussions on this subject. Suggest you use the Find Tab and type in air ride pin box.

Hope this helps.

We just took delivery of our new fifth wheel. It has a TrailAir pin box on it. Never had a fifth wheel before so I'm not the best judge (I'll leave that to the experts), but just watching how it works while driving (well, I did steal a look or two in the rear view mirror ) it looks like it's doing what it's supposed to do.

Smooth ride all the way, no harse pitching experienced at all. I can't say what it does for chucking, though as it primarily works in the up/down plane only.

MoRyde was the other pin box alternative we were looking at (on a Grand Junction). It seems like it would be better for fore/aft damping, but not as well for up/down damping.

Can't have it all?

Geo T. I have one but I don't get to try it out until 23 Jul when the 5er is delivered. I'll let you know what I think. Look At the pics in the toyhauler section.
