Demco Glide Ride & Trailer Saver Air Hitch?

Hi, I have just ordered a new fifth wheel with the Demco Glide Ride pin box and was also going to use a Trailer Saver Air Hitch on the Freightliner Sport Chassis. One controls the For and Aft movement and the Air hitch improves the shock to the pin box of a heavy duty MDT suspension. Has anyone tried this combo? Or, has any info on this type of setup?

Haven't tried it, sounds way $$$, but I think it is the best you can do, I know of no other combination that will accomplish what you want. If money was no issue I would do the same.

I might just go with the MorRyde pin box because of the rubber cushion that dampens fore/aft movement should, although not as much as airbags, dampen some of the road impact shock.
