TrailAir King pin for 2016 V3305

Hello everyone,

So I tried the search feature with little luck, Looking for advice and input on installing the Trailair system on my Fiver- looks like cost would be between 880-1200 buck. Is it worth the money?

thanks for any advice ..

I like my Trailair well enough. It's a warranty replacement for the Trailair/Tri-glide that broke last year.

Curious to see what folks think of their Trailair pin box too. Been pondering an upgrade but not sure what to get yet. I talked to a guy who hauls/delivers for a living and his recommendation was the Morride pin box. He delivers units with both types and claims he likes that one best. I don't know which one to get just yet... Decisions decisions....

The MorRyde provides horizontal motion resistance which works great for stopping and takeoffs. The issue I experienced with ours was it did nothing for the bucking when you hit dips in the road where our new trailer with the Trailair airbag setup displaces it. And while its still there, it drastically reduces it to something almost unnoticeable. For me, I'd rather deal with the push/pull issue the Morryde eliminates since most of it is at take off and stop at a low speed versus the wild bucking.

Im not sure you you could give me a MoRryde pinbox after owning the Trailair.

Does Trailair make one that does both?

They did - called a Tri Glide (which I have) but there major issues with the pins and welds breaking so it has been discontinued and they are just back to the TrailAire now. My father in law suffered the breakage at one time. I keep a very close eye on mine and hit all 9 grease zerks regularly...

Here is a link to another site detailing the issue: http://www.5thwheelforums.com/forums...ead.php?t=2175

As well as picture of a TriGlide unit

I purchased my trailair pin box used, it went on a 2014 voltage 3605, weighs 15,300lbs loaded, I will never own a trailer without air ride, the ride is so much smoother, I've pulled 3 hitch types, trailair, mor/ryde, and stock solid units, no comparison to air ride
