After an unexpected 3800 mile round trip, (including 7 states) I can honestly report a very positive opinion of the Trailair air bag & shock absorber 5th wheel pin box. 65-70 pounds in the air bag gives the best ride with the indicator just below the arrows on the lable. The photo shows an additional bracket fabricated to support the bubble level, flag mount and air valve relocation for easy access. This pin box upgrade allows longer hours on the road without fatigue and will certainly relieve stress on the camper frame and TV.

SilhouettePenny.....

I was happy to read your post and positive report on the 'Trailair air bag & shock absorber 5th wheel pin box'.
I told you that you would 'love it' .

May I ask why your trip of 3800 miles was 'unexpected' ?

Was it because with the new 'pin-box' you were totally unaware of how many miles you were putting on?

I'm heading out for a month mid April and also looking forward to towing in comfort....again.
Only a short haul (2 hrs) to our favorite Island getaway....but we enjoy it a great deal.

keep posting and enjoy
Islander
