Trailair

Trail air equally flex suspension and trail air root flex pin box. I am looking at ordering a 36qbok are these items of benefit?

Get them both. They make a big difference in the way the trailer tows. Smoother with less chucking. Had the Trailair suspension installed a on my Sabre, made a big improvement. Got both the suspension and the Roto Flex box on my Columbus, really big improvement.

I have the EquaFlex suspension and my weigh-tickets reflect it.

I want to upgrade to the Trail-Aire/Tri-Glide pin box. I think it would make things a little more comfortable in the truck. I definitely feel things back there.

I ordered a Trailair Triglide pinbox from my Sabre dealer for my 36QBOK-7. It's at the dealer now so I have to set up an appointment to get it installed.

Oh man- please post a review once you're hooked up and using it!

Will do. I'm a little nervous because my Sabre is already little nose-high and I've read how the Trailair can add another inch or so in nose height. I'm hoping that they can adjust it so that it rides somewhat level while hooked up to my Ram 3500 4x4, but also provide enough bedrail clearance to prevent a pinch.

I went with the equa-flex, it is a nice feature.

But I wish I had gone with this unit:
Center Point AIr Ride Suspension

We ordered that and towed it home from our PDI on Monday. HUGE difference in towing. Way less back and forth and up and down movement. Definitely worth every penny! Do not hesitate to buy!!!!

Well, went to have my Trailair Triglide pin box installed today at the dealership. After the new pinbox was installed on my Sabre, I noticed that it was not the Triglide...it was just the regular Trailair. I'll have to wait a little longer before I get the Triglide installed. I'll get you all posted.

Our Columbus came standard with the Trailair suspension and it provides a nice smooth ride for the trailer. We also ordered the optional TrailAir/TriGlide pin box and it makes towing a whole lot smoother. You essentially can't feel the trailer back there except when taking off and stopping.
I would highly suggest both!

Thought I'd post a few pics of the wrong Trailair pinbox (non-Tri Glide) getting installed on my '13 Sabre 36QBOK-7. Thankfully, all my emails to the dealership that ordered the new pinbox stated "Trailair Tri Glide". I still don't have a date for when they'll make the correction. I'll have to get my old pinbox re-installed so that we can go camping this weekend in Kentucky.






I almost didn't caught the fact that there is no "Tri Glide" portion on this pinbox. I don't think that my Tri Glide-specific PullRite capture plate would've fit this one.

I will be installing the CenterPoint on my 355BHQ sometime in the next week.

I think it should be good but only time will tell.
