Airsafe Hitch

Anyone use or have used a air safe hitch ? Found their site and sent for a price. The hitch uses a air bag to reduce shock between the truck and trailer .

For those towing without a WDH, I can see how this would be nice. But with a proper WDH speced and installed, I don't see the benefit of this airbag solution.

Yes, we had one for several years and towed a 30 ft. Cardinal 5th wheel that weighed over 11,000lbs. We were very happy with it and have a couple of friends who also have the same hitch. It won't remove all of the chucking and bucking but helps a lot. We just switched to a travel trailer and sold the hitch.

I must be a bit slow with the acronyms:
WAG?
TH? (Toy Hauler, maybe?)
W&P?
