That's why I never bought a pin box, I kept toying with the idea of an air hitch.

I've been looking at the BD3 also, in moving to a 5th wheel i don't want to experiment with hitches that don't do what I want them to do, i did that with the TT before getting the Hensley nearly 20 years ago and it did all that they said it would do so i am inclined to believe the BD# will be just as good. Found this for all those that feel hurt by the cost, it's not really that bad. BD3 Air Ride 5th Wheel Hitch $2,515.00

That looks like a decent option and the reviews seem pretty good. If it wasn't so expensive, that is the only thing that is the big hang up for me. I am actually surprised they are so much higher in price than some of the air ride pin boxes.

Exactly. The BD1 right now is $1,895. It's a newer version of the BD3 and not in their printed literature yet. But it is on their web site. The BD3 is $2,295. The prices of both I am told will go up in March

After doing some more reading and research I think that from a features Vs cost standpoint that best solution for me is the 5th Airborne. I believe I have the Lippert 1621 pinbox but, l'm not positive. I contacted Primetime support and left a message and followed up with a email about 2 weeks ago, never heard back from them. I guess since I am out of warranty they don't feel the need to respond. Does anyone know if a Lippert item number 2849622 is the 1621?

It has a airbag and a shock etrade has a good review on it and customer reviews are good 5th Airborne Premium Fifth Wheel Air Ride Coupler - 16,000 lbs Capacity Reese Fifth Wheel King Pin 5AB-E1621-16K . As far as price the best I found was on Amazon Robot Check I can't find anything that looks like that. My res325 came with a cover over the pinbox I guess it's under that.

Took the cover off and it is a 1621. Found a great price on Jet.com https://jet.com/product/detail/03eb1...AMHxoCBZbw_wcB and they have a additional $30 off for first time customers. Just not sure of Jet have read some bad reviews with shipping.

I actually order it via Amazon. It was a 3rd party seller but at least I know Amazon's rep as I have dealt with them a lot in the past. The other reason I purchased from them was because it ended up being cheaper even after the $30 coupon from Jet...Amazon was free shipping also...the difference was $20...

Really hope this is what I am looking for...
