If you notice on the Lippert site, they are no longer selling the Tri-Glide to individuals. So if you call them for an upgraded pin box, you'll get the new Flex Air, but it appears they are still suppling the Tri-Glide as OEM. I always thought that a TrailAir Air Bag on a Mor/ryde Pin would give a great ride, so the Flex Air looks about as close as you could come.

I would agree, looks like a great combo

Ken, I'd also like more info on upgrading the base.
When you get the Flex Air, play with the air pressure. Most of us find that if you inflate it all the way up to the top of the arrows the nose rides a little high and the ride is harsh. In mine, I run about 75 lbs pressure and it sits about 1/2 inch down from the top of the arrows.

You may have to lower the hitch height in the truck

Vaughan ,
Great tip! I drove back to camp, about 6 miles with it set at the arrows, about 85 lbs. I lowered it as you suggested before driving about 90 miles to Yuma yesterday. It road much better. Thanks!

Ken

Glad I could help. Now the next step will be either the Center Point suspension - which several people have had good luck with - or the MorRyde IS Suspension. I have the IS and disc brakes and will tell you I'll never go back. May try the Center Point in the next coach if I can't get the IS but will always have some sort of cushioned suspension with shocks. Ride and handling difference is night and day.

It's too soon for me to comment on the center point, however I do like the ability to keep a higher pressure on the heavy side of the rig.

Ken, my apologies. I forgot you did the center point too. I'll be very curious how it works out for you. I'm thinking seriously about another coach and the center point would be much less than the IS.
A good test is to leave a fairly heavy plastic bowl on the island and then check it about 2 hours later. I did this with a piece of non skid under it with the stock suspension and always found the bowl somewhere in the living area. Did it again 3 times after the IS went in and the bowl doesn't move. Neither does the paper towel holder next to the stove or the coffee maker next to the stove. With the original suspension, the coffee maker was always living in the sink ....

Must be a lot of generators in use as I don't see a lot of solar panels on those rigs.

There were lots of both solar and gen's. My Champion 3100 worked very well and is pretty quiet. I seemed to me to sound about the same as Ken's Honda 2000 duel set up. I ran mine a lot to keep my deepfreeze frozen. I was not planning on boon docking when I bought my Redwood. I felt it did the same as the Montana's.
