OK, you were asking about air ride pin boxes.
I would recommend the Trailair pin box. I ordered the pin box as an option when I ordered the trailer. I have the 24,000 lb model. I have had no problems until this year. I broke one of the two bolts holding the twin shocks. This was probably due to bad road conditions as much as design. The replacement parts I got from Trailair were an improvement of my earlier model.

After using several configurations, I settled in on the Air Safe this time. Air pin boxes move in one direction - - up and down. This is fine for cushioning the kingpin framing and will help smooth out the ride. It is not as effective for reducing chucking because it cannot move in the horizontal plane - - it is secured by a pivot that will not allow fore/aft movement. The Air Safe moves in all directions - - up, down, fore, aft and sideways. The end result is quite amazing. I would have saved a bunch of money had I picked one in the first place. The MORryde suspension helped, the MORryde pinbox helped, but it still did not do everything that the air hitch does. Highly recommend doing it right the first time. By the time you buy a good hitch plus a pinbox, might as well opt for the air hitch.

We have traveled well over 50,000 miles with the AirSafe hitch. absolutely LOVE IT.
Roads from Alaska to Mexico. Washington to Georgia. We have never had a thing break inside the coach. As posted above, it allows movement in ALL directions. It allows you hook up and unhook when things are not perfectly square. Driveways and railroad crossing that cause the truck and trailer to twist are a non problem. everything can move as it needs to to avoid stress. I have had 1 issue. one of the shocks leaked. 1 phone call and it was delivered in 2 days.
as you can tell, I'm a big fan!
