Yeah, that is what I was afraid of. When the dealer gave us the specs for the trailor (she was getting it in from another dealer) she said it had electric jacks, electric awning. It has hydraulic front jacks (really fast) and the awning is manual as are the stabilizer jacks. I didn't find out about the pin box not being the roto flex until our walk through. Anyone have the trail air roto flex on theirs? It is still a very nice 5th wheel, just sucks that the standard stuff is only standard on the late 2008 models. It does have the new front end cap though. I have a shortbed f250 super duty and am wondering how rough the ride will be. Haven't even hooked up to the thing yet.

I just installed a Fifth Airborne hitch last weekend, and it does make a significant difference. We'll see, as I only test ran it a few miles.

If you do decide to buy, I recommend Ebay....there is a business on there that I got mine from, he beat anyone else, including Tweetys.com by almost $100.....even with shipping. I ordered mine on a Saturday, and had it on Wednesday.

Just do a search in Ebay Motors for Fifth Airborne.

Just installed the 5th Airborne on our '05 29RLBS. Well worth every penny ... in fact, it may save having to do any more to the fiver's suspension (was thinking of Equa-Flex upgrade). Lots of mediocre roads where we camp and the pinbox has made all the difference to The One Who Knows All.
