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

Notes:

  • The Curt Rota-Flex is not compatible with Curt 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.

by:

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.



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

This unit is working as perfect as it did when new. Simple with no bags to inflate or check on. Great product and I would recommend this to anyone.



by:

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



by:

Product was as ordered. Hat's off to etrailer. After UPS lost the first one, etrailer expedited its replacement



by:

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...



by:

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



by:

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



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.



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.



by:

Looks and works great. Easy install



by:

It did what it was advertised to do.



by:

Great product, Installed and what difference the ride. Thanks SJ McDonnell

Sean

Great hauls good thanks



by:

Works great eliminated the jaring. Also shorter so I can make a hard turn without touching the sides of my box



by:

The cardboard box the hitch was delivered in was damaged, hitch was not damaged. Curt could potentially package the hitch differently to protect the product and mitigate delivery damage.



by:

The shipping container was not adequate for pin box. It was too large and no protective packing was used to protect the powder coated finish. When it was delivered by UPS the carton was destroyed. I had to repaint it as it was badly chipped from rough handling. I am disappointed in the performance as I do not see any difference in the chucking which is the reason why I purchased it. If I were to get a different 5th wheel I will not purchase a Rota-Flex again.



by:

Received on Wed. as planned. With a little help from my forklift, I had this trail air pin box installed in few hours. Fit perfect on my Sabre. Drove around the block, about 4 miles. This pulls so nice, it is like nothing behind you. Thanks etrailer.



by:

Looks great on my 5th. If anyone else has wondered as I did and could not find anything online regarding the vertical height difference between this trail air rota flex and my standard lippert 1621. This pin box will reduce the nose of my 5th by 2" mounted in the same location. Now to pull my rear axle spacers on my dodge to get another 1.5" lower. Etrailer is great as always. Never had a problem with them and have ordered here many times. Thanks Etrailer!



by:

> haven taken trip yet but i know there be a huge difference in the ride



by:

The product was great, The better part was how fast it got to me . I had it put on the camper the same day i had received it what was 3 days after my order. Now you can't beat the shipping. All my orders from ETrailer has been fast and on time . Thank you all at Etrailer.



by:

I was surprised at the difference one product could make in my towing experience! It really helped the chucking.



by:

Haven't installed pin box yet but it was delivered uncrated, and it looked like it was a used pin box.



by:

The difference now compared to when I had my done is like night and day, no more chucking, very little if any jarring , the ride meets al my expectations



by:

Fast shipping and item fits perfectly. Replaced old pin box by myself with a small tractor in about 45 minutes. Can't wait to try it out on my new toy hauler.



by:

A noticeable improvement over the standard pin box. It's most obvious when starting and stopping. It was very easy to install even for two 60+ women. We're happy with the purchase.



by:

The Trailair Roto-Flex is an excellent product. It really has smoothed out the ride and handling of my fifth wheel, especially over roads that aren't so perfect. I highly recommend this for an upgrade.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    The Trailair Rota-Flex 5th Wheel Pin Box - Lippert 1116, # LC176440, is designed to be a direct replacement for the Lippert 1116 pin boxes, if you have a 1116 pin box then this will fit.

I am uncertain what specific measurement you are wanting but this video covers multiple points across the three rows on this pin box plus width and length.

  • 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.

  • Best Cushioned Pin Box for 2019 Keystone Sprinter Limited with Lippert 1116 Pin Box
    For your 2019 Keystone Sprinter Limited Fifth Wheel trailer that has a Lippert 1116 pin box installed on it currently the best cushioned upgrade option we have is the Trailair part # LC155943 which uses an air bag and shock to cushion bouncing and jarring. This option will do the best to cushion the ride quality and also has more capacity than you'd need as it's rated for 21,000 lbs trailer weight.

  • Cushioned Pin Boxes that Fit in Place of 1116 Style Pin Box
    Since you have the 1116 style pin box the correct Rota Flex replacement would be the part # LC176440. The 1621 style pin boxes like what you mentioned are not interchangeable with the 1116 style. Or for a Trailair you'd want the part # LC155943 but we do not have a Flex Air that fits.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Slider Companion Hitch Recommendation for Short Bed Truck with Turnover to Allow Turning Clearance
    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. Extending a pin box out further than what the trailer had can put added stress on the trailer's frame due to the increased leverage. 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. The dimensions on the pin box will be fairly similar to your existing Lippert 1116 pin box, which is what this is designed to replace.
