Looking for best ride

Currently pull a 2017 Montana 3911FB with a 2017 F350 dually long bed using a MorRyde 1116 pin box with a BW Companion hitch with the Ford puck system. Added air bags to truck use at about 20pdi adjusting as needed. Still would like a better ride for our old bodies.

My research shows I can upgrade to the Trailair Air Ride or Reese 5th Airborne Premium to replace the MorRyde or opt for the Air Safe 20K 5th wheel Valley Style hitch.

Cost aside, any feedback on these products? Looking for the optimal ride especially on rough bumpy roads. Your input appreciated. Thank you! Bob

My call is a Trailer Saver TS3. You will need to use in conjunction with a Demco Ford Puck prep bracket. You did say "cost aside" right? As your trailer is pushing down and forward at the same time, the TS3 will compress and retract, dissipating most of your trailer generated forces.

Since you have a MORryde pin box, the Trailer Saver BD5 would also be a nice complement.

Yikes, if you do not like the ride loaded not sure you can be made happy. I had a 2012 F-450 towing a 16,500 5th wheel with a MorRyde pin box and Reese Elite 25k puck system hitch. I though the ride was very tolerable solo and better towing. If you added airbags I would think that would be the cats meow.

Sorry you didn't get more responses. On another forum, a member had a Companion hitch with a Trail Air pin box and was experiencing severe chucking. He tried the air bags and shocks route with little help, became frustrated and ordered a TS3. One member said he wasted his money as he already had the best hitch. The OP, to his credit, replied back. This is his post, copied and pasted:

"Well folks, put the new trailsaver TS3 in and took a 150 mile trip. Have 7” between coach and bed rail. Sits level. Have 60lbs in trailsaver pin box. I did not no I had a 42’ trailer behind my ram dually. Very easy to hookup and disconnect. I would like to thank everyone that tried to help. It might have been something I was doing but for now I’m thrilled. I forgot to mention both hitch’s had 18” to top of bed plate. See ya down the road blowing smoke."

I checked out the AirSafe hitch on line. Interesting concept with the four bags. The lack of a laterally pivoting hitch head might bother me, I can envision scenarios where it would be hard to hook up. Still are going to need the adapter bracket with the Ford pucks and their hitches.

My trailer had chucking problems with a Patriot hitch so I bought a TS3, now a comfortable tow. Good luck.
