MORryde Pin Box

Hi, I asked this in the Primetime sub forum a few days ago and the only response I got was from another member wanting to find out the same thing.

I am thinking of adding a MORryde Pin Box to my Crusader 325res. Anyone have experience with doing this and if so was the ride improvement it worth it?

Thanks, Rick

I've never had one, nor added one, but I can't recall even one post complaining about them in multiple RV forums.

Had the MorRyde on my last fiver ... got rid of most of the "chucking" but doesn't address vertical shock like an air hitch. There are different densities of rubber blocks inside the assembly ... make sure the pinbox you get is for your particular unit. They are pretty easily interchanged if you don't think it's matched correctly. There are 4 teflon pucks that the lower shoe slides on ... these need replaced after 4-5 years as they start deteriorating.

I was thinking about changing mine out to the Morride but a friend has one and really didn't like. I opted for the Air Ride and I love it.

RickV....

I contemplated the MoRyde for some time...but decided on the TravelAiR TriGlide.

IMO The TrailAir gives a smooth ride for driver and passenger over those long otherwise fatiguing - jerking - rough passages.

I have noted this before in other posts... but will reiterate it again here... I tested the 'interior ride' of the trailer to see if it calmed it down inside at all .
I did this by placing some 'loose items' around the inside. Things like a plastic bowl on top of the counter, a tie down strap on the table, a footstool placed in the middle of the floor, etc.
After a 1 1/2 hr trip, on a winding bumpy country road I checked out the 'test items' to see what happened.
Every item was still 'in place', if they moved it was only fractional, nothing fell off the table or counters..... I was "impressed" !
I don't think the MoRyde will do that for you.

Consider the size and weight of your 5'er then think of that extra comfort of the Air-Bag suspension that the pin-box provides.

There will be less stress on the 5th wheel frame work, truck suspension and the driver/passengers with the smooth ride.

If/When you order one ... give business the number of pin box you originally have on your unit (Lippert 1621 for example) that way most all dimensions will be near the same as what you have. There are several MorRyde pin box models ... it's not a one size fits all.

Yikes!!!!!! big difference in price but, I guess you get what you pay for. Thanks for the replies. I will do some more research but, you guys have pretty much talked me outta the Morryde. Anyone got any opinions on the 5th Airborne Pin Box?

I put the 5th Airborne on my 33IK. It works for me with little chucking. I use about 85 psi in the air puck. I adjusted the puck location 1 slot to the rear from stock. The TrailAir just didn't appeal to me with all the pucks and shocks on the outside. Shop around on the net ... price varies.
