New Pinbox Pic from RW plant tour

Here is a picture I took during our plant tour from this years Redwood Rally. Looks to combine many things. And the colors are bright, possibly to help you avoid walking into it??

Do you happen to remember what the rateing was on that pretty colored Flex Air?
When you put 8K axles on a RW you should get a GVWR 18.5K, but to date it's only been 17.9K because of the Tri-Glide only being 18K. So I wonder if they use a higher rated Flex Air if they'll up the GVWR.

On Edit: OK, enlarged the pic and it looks like the Flex Air is 21K, so it will be interesting to see if RW upps the GVWR to go with the 8K axles and 21K pin.

Mine was also rated at 18K.... Still a great ride over the tri-glide... Nice improvement

The fact that Lippert was pushing the tri-glide as "The Hitch to Have" for a long time......I'm not sure I'd trust this product. I think a person would be better off looking at MOR/ryde products

whats wrong with the concept of the double air bag and shock absorbing the ride verse steel to steel application with a little side to side motion, their the truck feels it for sure.

The new FlexAir works better than a steel PINBOX. It has a single airbag, shock and hard rubber insert under the pin plate like the rotoflex has.

Not sure if the frame stayed the same, BUT last year when I purchased the Flex Air for my "2016" 38RL it was;

LC328492 for the Lippert 1621
