That's because the Reese Revolution isn't really an OEM pinbox...it's called a Reese Sidewinder if you were to buy it as a aftermarket add on. Rockwood has been using these pinboxes last couple of years (was an option prior to that) instead of the Lippert 1621 pinbox.

Thanks Dave. Then the L05 Model of the Tri Glide Air Ride Pin Box should fit the RV, as it is listed as an upgrade for the Lippert 1621.

I need to contact my dealer and see if FR can install that at the factory, as I'm sure it will be less expensive than adding later.

I don't want to be the pessimist, but I don't think you'll have too much success with that plan. The only chance may have been during the negotiating process and they could have ordered a Lippert frame without any pinbox and substituted a Tri-Glide at the difference in cost.

I'm sure the dealer will be more than happy to change it out for your at full retail plus installation.

My suggestion would be to try towing with the Reese Revolution...you could leave it locked with your TV. If you get too much chucking, change out the pinbox yourself to whatever you like.

20K 5th Wheel Air Hitch I have been looking real hard ( $2500 ouch ) at one of these . i bought the ez flex kit from these guys http://www.nickstruckparts.com/k71-652-00.html and the kyb monomax shock absorbers i am adding too. I have been looking at the tri glide pin real real hard and for $1200 shipped from e trailer not a bad price and $1200 http://www.etrailer.com/Fifth-Wheel-...35-946229.html cheaper than the omni hitch but the omni hitch fits all fifth wheels where the tri glide seems to fit only my lipper 1621 box so..... just trying to smooth it up in the hopes that I don't wind up with a craked upper deck with the frame ripping apart like a few posts on this site since lippert didn't build the frames strong enough imo. I am hauling a sand rail too which is basically like a car not a couple of bikes or quads. the utv's weigh as much as my rail though and i am betting a couple hd's would weigh more depending on models. i did look at the mountain man air hitch and the hensley air hitch as well as the omni air safe and the omni looks far superior by design to me. air safe and hensley make an air hitch that looks like a standard fifth wheel hitch and air safe charges $1300 for the 10k and $1600 for the 18 k http://www.airsafehitches.com/10k_16k_18k.html and hensley $2500 for the 18k http://www.trailersaver.com/bd3-air-...heel-hitch.php and compared to there http://www.trailersaver.com/airsuspe...itches_ts3.php and for the long term, versatility of the design from the 8 way aticulation imo the omni 20k or 22k is a no brainer for me.

this is a link to dexter's site for the ez flex for more info http://www.dexteraxle.com/inc/sdetail/18096/28009

I personally have one the the airsafehitches...rated at 20K, and I gotta say this thing is built like nothing I've ever come across. The engineering behind it is incredibly simple and pulling my 5er is an absolute dream now. You basically set the air pressure (I use a jump box with a built in compressor), adjust as necessary, and hit the road. Almost eliminated all the chucking and bucking you normally have. My wife will finally ride with me instead of running in a chase car. It is expensive, no doubt, but this thing will make it a pure pleasure to pull your rig and should last a lifetime. Good luck!!

Or put shocks on the trailer. Sure eliminated the 'dophining' & 'chucking' on mine.

What OEM pinbox do I have?

I've got a '12 Wildcat 344QB and want to change to an air ride pinbox but I can't tell which Lippert pinbox is on there now. None of the numbers on the pinbox sticker match up to anything in the Lippert catalog. Any ideas?

I would have upgraded my trailer suspension to this instead of the Equa-Flex.
