Comparison of Pin Boxes needed

We have a new 5th Wheel Toy hauler. Dutchmen 4105 (2017)
Since we are new to hauling 5th wheels, I would like to know if anyone out there has actually COMPARED the different pin boxes.

I can read all sorts of comments about, this is better, or that is better, and that they've used this brand and never had troubles.

But that doesn't actually give a true comparison...unless they have used, for example the Demco and now use the MorRyde pin box. THEN give a true comparison.

Our problem is that of chucking:

The ones that we are considering are the Demco, MorRyde, and the Air Ride systems. We have an F350 Dually Long bed pulling the trailer. We have a Demco 21K as the receiver. Any help or comments on this matter would be of great assistance.

I had a Trailair on my 48' Warrior with no leaks or issues, performed great.

But did you ever have other pin boxes to compare with? You see...that is our problem: Nothing to actually compare.

So how DO you decide what make to go with? Or is it just personal preference?

I have not. However there are some comparison videos I've seen on YouTube that maybe of interest. Good luck.

I'm on my second trailer with a Demco Glide ride and zero chucking.

When I bought this toy hauler, it was a condition of sale that it was added.
