Go with an air ride type hitch such as Trailair or any one of the other brands. It will pay you back in how well it can smooth out the movement felt between the trailer and truck.

I'd agree.

I run a B&W mainly because I didn't want rails in the bed, and I'm quite happy with it (and they do offer models for flat beds).

Next time, though, I will spring for one of the air ride jobs.

I went with a Trailair pin box for my 39' Teton, and use a 20k Reese in the truck. Was less expensive in the long run than most air ride hitches and smoothed out the ride measurably.

I went with a air hitch and love it. There's a lot of good ones out there. I've heard, in this and other forums, that a lot of folks like Reese and B&W. I've also heard that folks who didn't care for the bounce and jerk, went with an air hitch and are very pleased.

Thanks Maddog for your reply. We have heard that alot of people agree with you on the air hitch. With a one ton dually that's what we will go with. Thanks for the insight.
