Fellow 5th wheel owners

A month or so ago I was in touch (email and phone) with 5th Airborne about one of their Air Hitch Pin Boxes.

For the last three weeks my local RV dealer has been trying to order something for me. They haven't responded to three emails and today when they called them for me they answered with the recorded "Welcome to 5th Airborne -------" then we were put on hold, after 7 minutes we hung up.

On returning home I called them myself on at 800 710 9783, after 4 minutes on hold I also hung up!

Does anybody know what is going on with 5th Airborne? Are they still in business? Did they merge with another company?

Thanks for your replies.

Richard

After that many attempts to contact them I think I would reconsider their product. What if you needed repairs or parts? You might want to take a look at the Trailair instead.
Good luck!
