Just another vote for a sidewinder-type hitch. Scoob, I had the same concerns but I used the Turning Point that came with our 5er to tow from NH to FL. No problems at all. In fact, I would watch the trailer in the mirrors sometimes and I was impressed with how well it tracked. I could feel it when a semi went by, but it wasn’t scary, just noticeable. The trailer would settle right down with no fuss.
Some of that may be due to the hitch. We have a BW Companion, which is rock solid and easy to use. We’re also using the BW-specific wedge, that may help too. Overall, though, I think now that the rotating pin boxes are fine LOL.
Also, as somebody else said, the rotation feature is very handy when you’re unhitched, too. Where we are now, I have the pin box turned back under the trailer to get enough room to park the truck in front of it. So, go ahead and use the rotating pin box, you’ll be fine and I suspect happy with it to boot.
