On Amazon, I have noticed Flex-air trailair and Air-ride trailair hitches. they look very similar. Is there a difference?

Trailair is the brand name.
AirRide is the current model air bladder
/ shock absorber pinbox.
FlexAir was an air bladder pinbox as well, but also had a rubber cushion, I guess, similar to the morryde pinbox. I think this model has been discontinued.

PS.... if you're looking to buy, prices do change daily. I paid $939 including tax
and shipping last August from Camping World. They had the best price.

They are "pin boxes" not hitches.

Love my TrailAir.

Does one perform better than the other? I can find both of them on Gander outdoors.

My bad....it's the Tri Glide that was discontinued. The Flexair is its replacement.
