pin box for b&w companion

Need suggestions for adding a new pin box to match 18k B&W Companion. Looking to get a smooth ride as I can, also it will save wear on frame of 5've and bed of TV.

Boy; I seem to be learning a lot on these forums!

the pivot points on the b&w hitch is a rubber mounting. we have a trailair pinbox. our truck has rear air suspension so we have found dumping the air in the truck makes hookup much easier.

The Demco Glide-Rite pinbox extension works wonders for fore/aft "chucking". We couldn't believe the difference it made on our rig!

Our tow rig is a HDT semi that was beating the fiver to death. Installed the 5th Airborne air ride pin box, all well now. I saved over a $150. purchasing the unit directly from the factory.
