Hello all. I am new to the group and wanted to run something by you. I recently traded in my Montana 5th wheel for a 2013 Redwood RE. I had a Mor Ryde hitch/suspension on my Montana and never had any issues with the back end of the hitch clearing the side rails of the truck when making a sharp turn. My Redwood has a Roto Flex and the pin box makes me very uncomfortable with how close it comes to my side rails when making a sharper turn. Especially on uneven ground. I have raised my hitch as high as it can go and still do not have enough of a comfort zone. Has anybody changed over to a Mor Ryde pin box? In looking at them, the Mor Ryde has a totally different configuration and appears to allow for more clearance. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks
Last year at the rally a lot of people opted for the MorRyde. Getting rid of the rotoflex and trail aire PINBOX I know with my FlexAir I had to trim the ears on the back of it as it was catching my tonneau cover rails in tight turns

That is good to know. I really appreciate the feedback and am happy to know it is not just me. I was always real happy with the MorRyde system and thought it may be the way to go again. Do you remember which size/model number was recommended for the Redwood?

I was one who changed to the MorRyde pin box at the Rally last year. I had the Rotoflex and changed since it looked much better made and also gave me about 2 more inches of clearance between our truck and front storage but still not enough to open while hitched. Very happy with it but I also have to say that I had no problems with the Rotoflex. We have had a 2011 Ford and now our 2015 GMC and no clearance issues with the turning. I did have to raise the hitch to the highest setting in the GMC to get the clearance between the bed sides and RW.
