Pin Box

Trailair Flex Air 5th Wheel Pin Box - Lippert 1621 - 18,000 lbs Lippert Components Fifth Wheel King Pin LC328492

I just ordered this Flex air Pin Box from E Trailer, does anybody have one, if so how is the ride with it?

That is what we have on our 38RL. It seems to help some with Road bumps. I found adding air bags to the truck even though they were not needed on our F450 took out more of the bounce and lurch and I can adjust as needed going down the road.

A previous thread discuused a Lippert kit to update the old Tri-Glide to this design. Anyone have any news on this?

Our 36Fl came with the Trailair Flex Air 5th Wheel Pin Box can really tell the difference on going over rough bridges and roads, also have the airbags. I would recommend getting them.

We (5th Time and I and others) already have the Trail Air Tri-Glide which is the Air Cushion Pin Box. Already have Air Bags also. What we are referring to is the new Flex Air which does away with the PITA lower jaw with the rollers and replaces it with a MorRyde style pivoting Pin Head with rubber cushions.


Best of all worlds. I just can't see spending the money for a complete new pin box when the only difference is the lower jaw and pin

I think Titan Guy pretty much determined that LCI is not going to provide a kit to upgrade. Upgrade consists of buying a new pin box.

I love my tri-glide! I wouldn't change it for anything.

Don't get me wrong, happy with the Tri-Glide, but would love to do away with the banging roller pin setup. The Flex Air does that.

I know a lot of folks have had the banging issue, but mine has never done that. Just lucked out I guess.

In January at Quartzsite, I tried to get LCI to supply me the lower jaw only, no success but the Flex Air was new at that time. I would try them again.
