  • Absorbs Road Shock and Reduces Chucking
  • Upgraded Pin Box
  • CURT
  • Fixed Turret

  • The Curt Rota-Flex is not compatible with Curt E-Series or Q-Series 5th wheel hitches.

The Rota-Flex pin box has a pivoting head and built-in rubber compound that help to reduce checking and absorb road shock for a smoother ride as you tow your fifth-wheel trailer.


Pivoting Head Reduces Chucking

The Curt Rota-Flex pin box has a pivoting head to help reduce chucking

The pivoting head on the Rota-Flex allows for controlled back and forth movement of the king pin to reduce the uncomfortable jarring known as chucking. Unlike a rigid pin box that has little give at the point where the trailer and the hitch are connected, the Rota-Flex can pivot slightly to compensate for those times that your trailer suddenly pushes or pulls on your tow vehicle. Because the pin box head - not the king pin itself - is moving, the chucking that often occurs when the king pin jerks around inside the hitch is significantly reduced.


Rubber Compound Absorbs Road Shock

The Curt Rota-Flex pin box has a built-in rubber compound to help absorb road shock

A heavy-duty rubber compound is built into the head assembly of the Rota-Flex pin box. This rubber absorbs the bumps and vibrations, or road shock, experienced when towing a fifth-wheel trailer over rough roads. Standard pin boxes without any type of shock absorption transfer road shock to your trailer, resulting in potential damage to the trailer and an overall bumpy ride. The shock-absorbing rubber inside the Rota-Flex takes the beating so there's less wear and tear on your trailer or RV and you get a smoother ride.


Easy, Bolt-On Installation

The Rota-Flex is easy to install. Simply remove your existing Lippert 1116 pin box and install the Rota-Flex on your trailer or RV. The Rota-Flex uses the same bolts that held on your original pin box so no additional hardware is required. Plus, it comes out of the box ready to be put on your trailer, so no assembly is needed. Because the Rota-Flex is quite heavy, you should put it on an elevated surface or have a friend help you support its weight during installation.

It's a great pinbox. Really helped with chucking and compatible with my Demco sliding hitch. Also no issues with delivery, was helped by Pam and Jessie. They are awesome people to work with.



- LC176440
by:

Perfect replacement for my unit. The movement in the mount helps with the shock on the hitch itself. The unit is very strong and after a year I have had no problems. The instructions were spot on and shipping was very fast. I recommend this pin box as it is more economical than others I have seen but really helps on the bump and pull with a solid hitch



- LC176440

The pin box made the 5th wheel handle better, with less chucking and very stable.



- LC176440
by:

Definitely dampened the chucking and my wife is much happier with the ride. Also it seems to be much quieter. Noticed at the camper show many units come with the Roto flex from the factory.

Got it on and ready to try. It fit nicely. Did it myself in about an hour . Nothing left of the box it was in but other than a couple of scratches the pin box itself was in good condition



- LC176440
by:

The hitch arrived poorly packaged in a cardboard box. The hitch is very heavy. It was scratched and required repainting. The hitch itself looks well made and strong.

I installed this by myself (it is heavy!) by putting it in the bed of my pickup & strapping it to a floor jack but not a job I’d recommend doing it by yourself. I already have airbags on the rear axle of my pickup is why I chose this king pin . Only a 200 mile trip and the bucking on the 5th wheel was gone. But the real test will be on a rough highway...

Have not installed yet, paint has been scraped off in several locations especially on top and on the rounded corners from shipping. Will have to do some touch up painting. Excited to get installed and pull trailer next weekend

Review from a similar Trailair Rota-Flex in Fifth Wheel King Pin


Great product, unfortunately I was very displeased with how it was delivered. The product was unwrapped and had the potential to be scratched up and chipped.

Customer service will reach out to you. It is important to cover all bare metal with anti-corrosive paint to avoid rust. I have attached a help article regarding this.

Ask the Experts about this CURT Fifth Wheel King Pin



  • Is RotaFlex Pin Box Similar to Mor Ryde Pin Box In terms of Cushioning
    The Mor/Ryde pin boxes and the Trailair RotaFlex like part # LC176440 are pretty similar in how they cushion the ride. The Mor/Ryde is definitely more common out there on the road, but the feedback I've read on people who have tried both said they were very similar.

  • Can Rota Flex Pin Box be Used with Reese 16k Fifth Wheel Hitch
    Your Reese 16k hitch would easily work with the Rota-Flex pin boxes like # LC176440 without issue. The ability of the hitch head to pivot would not be a problem for the Rota Flex. This is true for all Reese hitches.

  • What Is The Torque Specs For The Curt Rota-Flex Pin Box?
    For the Curt Rota-Flex 5th Wheel Pin Box # LC176440, Curt recommends to reuse the old hardware that was removed from the original pin box, unless they are damaged or unusable. The torque spec is dictated by the type of bolt that is used along with the type of metal it is made of. For example, if you have 1/2"-13 grade 5 zinc plated bolts, then the proper torque spec is, 65 ft-lbs. I have attached a chart that expands upon this, provided by Curt.

  • Is Rotaflex or MORryde Pin Box Better for Keystone Montana
    The ride quality between the MORryde and the Rotaflex pin boxes are about equal. I did some digging and the Keystone owners seem to mostly like both of them about the same. Some people preferred one over the other but in general I would say you aren't going to see a huge difference. One thing that was mentioned with the Rotaflex was that it squeaks a bit though.

  • Trailair Rota Flex Cushioned Pin Box that Fits as Replacement for Fabex 665
    The cushioned Trailair Rota-Flex 5th Wheel Pin Box # LC328330 does fit the Fabex 665 that you have now and would work great as a cushioned replacement. While this pin box states it's designed to fit as a replacement for the Lippert 1621 or 1621HD we've found that in general the 1621 and the Fabex 665 are identical.

    The Rota-Flex part # LC176440 would fit as a replacement on your trailer that has a Lippert 1116 on it currently. But this product has the same dimensions as your current pin box. These are designed to be basically exact replacements that are cushioned.

The only solution we can offer is to replace your Companion hitch with the sliding Companion part # BWRVK3400....

  • Best Pin Box Replacement for Turning Clearance to Replace Lippert 1116 Pin Box
    The Lippert 1116 pin box is a medium length pin box and there isn't an extended version available that would replace it. If you are needing additional turning clearance the way to go is with a Sidewinder since it moves the pivot point back 22-1/2 inches to provide the clearance. For that you'd just need the part # RP61412 and you'd be set. Sidewinders also help make the trailer easier to back up as well as track better behind the truck when towing.

    The Trailair Rota-Flex 5th Wheel Pin Box # LC176440 that you referenced will work well to provide a more comfortable ride but it won't help with the cab clearance issue you're having with your short bed truck.

  • Pin Box Solution for Trailer With Lippert 1116 To Gain Additional Turning Clearance
    If you need additional pin box length for turning clearance with your trailer that has a Lippert 1116 pin box we have a great solution, but the Rota-Flex you mentioned does not provide additional turning clearance so it would not be the way to go. Instead what you'd want is a Sidewinder pin box # RP61412 which moves the pivot point back 22 inches so that even with super short truck beds you'll have the clearance needed to make tight turns.
