2nd air conditioner and tri-glide

I knew I couldn't hold out for long. Ordered a 13500 penguin II ducted with heat strip for the front bedroom. Should keep us cool through out the hottest Texas days.

Also order a tri-glide. All though I was pretty impressed with how the new sabre towed, I'm always looking for something smoother.

Pictures to follow when they arrive and when I install them

I'm jealous of your TriGlide! I've wanted that for a while just haven't collected my pennies for it yet.

Let us know how it does!

Please let us know your experience with the new tri-glide! I don't think we get enough true feedback sometimes for the rest of us to take the plunge.

Doug, I've always wanted one for the Fox I had, but never took the plunge. If I don't do it now, I'll probably procrastinate again. It's kind of entertaining reading different forums on the heated debate of which aftermarket pinbox is best.

I spent most of the day researching the tri-glide. Several post on other forums were saying the L05 tri-glide was actually longer than the stock lippert 1621 box. I called Lippert, and they sent me the drawing specs. The distance from bolt holes to the pin are exactly the same as the stock box. The air bag does stick out a little further making it longer, but it will not make the trailer sit further back. (I didn't want that).

I'll do my best, I wish I could have had it for my 1000 mile return trip from Utah. The rest of this years trips will be less than 200 miles, but I should get a good feel of it.

I think any comparison is a good deal. Many of the threads I've read, have been from those that have had it installed on their rig since they bought it, but didn't have it on previous rig. I like true value comparison. Basically is it worth it.

Once you get the Tri-glide installed pull your 5th wheel on I-90 west bound thru Minnesota for a real test. I am interested to hear about your experience after the new install. I too would love to make the ride a smoother experience.

I also am interested. I have the mid grade cushion box, no air bag but w/rubber isolator. It is good, just want to know how much better the tri glide is.

I have the TriGlide on my 320RS, I had a stock pin box on my previous 5er and there is absolutely no comparision, The TriGlide takes out about 90-95% of the chucking you experience. Had a previous 5er with the morryde and this is just as good if not better, Well worth the $$ IMHO




Happy Camping!!!!
