Does the Equa-Flex suspension include shocks? The demo: RV Suspension System - Equa-Flex By: Lippert Components - YouTube shows shocks in the cutaway.

The shocks will stop the bounce.

I assume that it does but would have to ask DH. I know there's an emblem on the side that says ours is equipped with the Equa-Flex suspension system.

So do you think we would be just as well off with the Mor/Ryde?

By the way, we camp in your area quite a bit. We were there for Autofair and camped at Tom Johnson's (bought our fifth wheel there too!).

A few questions

I am really looking forward to getting our 2013 36ckts. Plan to order it by Friday.
I just need some intell first.
Can I pull the CC WITHOUT a slider hitch ?? I am planning to get the TrailAir TRI-Glide. I have a RAM 3500 mega cab DRW short bed with a B&W turnover ball w/5th wheel companion (18K). It looks like with the long kingpin of the TrailAir and the front cap design it should work but I cant find it anywhere in writing.
And who is pulling a CC 36ckts with a RAM 3500 DRW ? How does it handle the load.
I do have Firestone airbags and a tuner for an additional 60HP (410HP total).
2011.5 Ram 3500 MEGA cab DRW 4x4, B&W 18k, LOOKING to get CC 36ckts.

When it comes to the question concerning MorRyde (IS) there is no, absolutely no comparison to LCI's Dexter suspension. We have 1500 miles so far (IN, IL, MO, AR & TX mostly overused, under maintained freeways) and I do not feel the trailer like I did on the trip up to Elkhart with the OE suspension.

When discussing chucking, remember you are referring to fore-aft movement within your hitch which will not be cured with a new pin box, regardless of make or model. Our MorRyde IS addresses the porpoising associated with the original suspension. The lack of chucking is addressed by our Curt 20K hitch. Our TrailAir simply eases the shock that would otherwise be transmitted to the trailer chassis while towing. In the final analysis, we have chosen the systems we feel will extend the life of our Creek and improve the ride as we explore what this great nation has to offer.

Travel safe & enjoy your journeys!

If your dodge is a diesel you can pull the 36CKTS. You just will not be able to make sharp turns. Each time you forget that fact it will cost you at amount of your deductible. Weigh that cost against the cost of a slider (auto is better). Even with a slider, it is possible to turn too tight going forward. That will leave a mark as well. So the bottom line is; If you decide to tow without a slider in a shorty, you will need to carry some heavy plastic sheets and some 100mph tape. I hope you never have to use it.

Be satisfied with your opinions
and content with your knowledge.
