I'm responding to a post yesterday, but I did see the original date as I read the entire thread.
I've been looking for opinions on these pin boxes and was happy to see some.

Something no one has said is just break down and buy you a good air hitch. Either a Airsafe Hitch or a Trailer Saver Air Hitch. Buy a good one with the Holland-Binkley Head. Then don't worry about chucking or anything else. I bought the 25k AirSafe Hitch in 2006 and been happy every since. First time we took our Carriage out on a trip . The wife said , you don't even know it is back their. The truck and RV are not in a bind.They both ride smooth. Only time anything has ever moved in the RV is when I had to slam on the brakes. So bite the bullet one time and be happy.

Nothing wrong with the TrailerSaver but what does it cost to handle my 24k DRV? I am more than happy with my Factory rear air ride RAM with B&W Companion hitch along with the TrailAir TriGlide.

Will anything fix the crappy ride while towing a 5th wheel? I say no, we just gotta live with it. The mechanics of a 5th wheel is akin to a teeter-totter so long as the wheels are situated near the middle of the trailer it's gonna bounce and chuck.

I think that is true, I had the worst ride when I used the arrows. But when I brought the air down to 40 lbs I noticed a big difference in the ride. Dose it still bounce yeah, but it is a lot softer!

Have you tried a good air hitch. I have a 2006 Carriage that weighs fully loaded a little over 14,700lbs. Of that the hitch weight is a little over 3,100lbs. That puts 11,600lbs on the tires. I have a 25k Air Safe Hitch with the Holland Binkley Head. You don't really notice the 5th wheel behind you. It is floating back their and the truck rides good. Only time anything moves in the 5th wheel is if I have to slam on the brakes. So unless you break down and spend the money one time to get a good air hitch. You haven't tried everything. And if you do buy a good air hitch make sure it has the Holland Binkley Head
