Massive improvement in trailer ride ,it kind of floats along behind the truck -bobs in a horizontal plane instead of a rocking horse or teeter toter motion .I run less then 50 psi in the air bags.

Thank you. That is the exact improvement I was hoping for. Right now, the trailer rocks for/aft, pounding down on the pin. Similar motion to pounding a nail into a board. There is flex in the frame around the area where the pin box mounts and all the sheet metal screws in the front area keep backing out and falling out from the constant pounding. Every time it bounces against the pin, it feels like a kick in the pants for anybody in the cab of the TV. We aren't having any fun.

I went from a reese pro 15k to the trailer saver bd3 pulling a 9k+ Cougar 291RLS. I can say that we have a 95% better ride with the trailersaver BD3. Not cheep but well worth the cost.

I had a 15k reese and went to a bd3 like day and nite. Well worth the investment.
