Getting there is half the fun, right? Not if you're being bumped, jerked, jammed, and pushed around from the chucking, road shock, and bounce that occurs as you tow your fifth-wheel trailer or RV. And imagine the costly wear and tear on your trailer as it endures that rocky ride.


Put the fun back into your trip and ease the stress on your trailer by replacing your factory pin box with the Trailair Flex Air pin box. The internal air bag and built-in shock work together to cushion your ride, improve handling, and limit strain on both your truck and your trailer. But what sets the Flex Air apart from other air ride pin boxes is the addition of a pivoting head. This head, along with its built-in rubber compound, provides additional cushion, absorbs road shock, and reduces chucking for a significantly improved ride.


Rubber Compound and Internal Air Bag Absorb Road Shock

Lippert Flex Air pin box has a rubberized pivoting head

A heavy-duty rubber compound is built into the head assembly of the Flex Air pin box. This rubber is the first defense against road shock. It helps to absorb the bumps and vibrations 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 Flex Air takes the beating so there's less wear and tear on your trailer or RV and you get a smoother ride.


Lippert Flex Air pin box has a shock and air bag

Because the rubber may not be able to absorb all of the road shock that you experience, the Flex Air also implements air ride technology to virtually eliminate shock. When you encounter uneven terrain on your trip or hit a pothole on the highway, the Flex Air pin box compresses vertically, similar to how a pair of scissor blades closes in on each other. This compression transfers the road shock and vibrations to the internal air bag, saving your fifth-wheel hitch, trailer, and tow vehicle frame from enduring a rocky ride.


A built-in strut, or shock, controls the Flex Air's compression so that the internal air bag doesn't burst. The strut also causes the pin box to appropriately rebound without any bounce, and positions it to be ready for the next bump in the road.


Pivoting Head Reduces Chucking

Lippert Flex Air pin box has a pivoting head that reduces chucking

The pivoting head on Flex Air 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 Flex Air 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.


Simple Setup and Installation

First, simply remove your existing Lippert 1621 pin box from your trailer. The Flex Air uses the same bolts that held on your original pin box so no additional hardware is required for installation. Plus, the Flex Air pin box comes out of the box ready to be put on your trailer, so no assembly is needed. Because the Flex Air is quite heavy, you should put it on an elevated surface or have a friend help you support its weight during installation.


The internal air bag should be inflated after the Flex Air pin box has been mounted on your trailer. Using the air intake valve, inflate the air bag until the outer cylinder of the shock rises high enough to fully expose the yellow inflation indicator sticker.

Formerly I had a hitch with air bags. Changed trucks with different mount. Looked to replace the easy ride and fell in love with this king pin. Now have several thousand miles and found this king pin better than the shock hitch! I would buy it again if something happened or we changed trailers!!!!!!!! I ordered the longer one and it allows me to let my tail gate down when hitched or hitching. Wonderful. 686918

product smooth's out ride over our great highways (cattle paths) here locally. only issue I have is that the pin box once tightened down into the original bolt holes is leaning to one side and is noticeable in the rear view mirror as I haul. 562437


Comments
has trouble keeping air in the 2 rubber doughnuts. seems that it needs top up a couple times a week when travelling. have heard that others have the same issues and have upgraded the rubber doughnuts to the 20K with better success.

Believe the hype! This kingpin is the “kingpin of kingpins”. I went from my straight 1621 to this. The difference was astounding. It was like going from being on the SS Minnow on rough seas to the USS Nimitz on a calm bay. Very little chucking. True night and day difference. Yes, it is a little pricey, but if you consider the potential outlay of cash to the incurred maintenance of wear and tear from travel to BOTH the tow vehicle and trailer-I felt it was worth the investment. If you’re looking into upgrading-do it. It’s worth it! 821941

Great product. No problems after one year. Helps a lot with the bucking on rough roads. Highly recommend. 818369

by:

The reason I purchased the pin box is I needed some extra distance between my truck bed and 5th wheel. It did the trick, I got an extra 5" (had 4"). But the ride is amazing! Very pleased with towing, I almost can't tell I'm pulling a 44' toy hauler cause it's so smooth. My ordering experience was top notch, I will definitely purchase again from etrailer.com 814909

Smooth out the right of the fifth wheel so well reduce chucking I will never buy another fifth wheel without this hitch 765074



- LC369535
by:

This is an awesome upgrade it takes the chucking away 100% smoother than the standard king pin, the only issue is that after setting at one location for awhile I have to top off the air? It is definitely a great addition to the HL Landmark 765030



- LC369535
by:

The hitch pin box did exactly what I wanted it to do. It gave me more bed clearance and a better ride for the fifth wheel. The only drawback, is that it touches the side of the bed on sharp turns. 764392



- LC369535
by:

Great product with quick delivery. Does not come with mounting hardware, so if your existing pin box only bolts on with a couple of bolts you will more. Good idea to just order them at same time. Also did not come with glide (lube) plate as listed in info videos. 744543



- LC369535
by:

Great product for any fifth wheel! Really smoothes out the ride for both the truck and trailer. Easy bolt on install! All RVs should come with one of these! 572226

  • Comparing the 18K and 21K Lippert 1621 Flex Air 5th Wheel Pin Boxes
    The Trailair Flex Air 5th Wheel Pin Box part # LC369535 which is rated for 21,000 lbs is constructed of a thicker metal and also has beefier welds when compared to the Trailair Flex Air 5th Wheel Pin Box part # LC328492 which is rated for 18,000 lbs. The air bag and shock that is used in each of them are the same. The thicker metal and welds are what gives the former a higher weight capacity. The best option for you would be the one that meets the GVWR of your trailer though you could go...

    I spoke to my contact at Lippert about the issue you are having with the Trailair Flex Air 5th Wheel Pin Box like part # LC369535 on your 2011 Ford F-350. They stated that the arrow on the shock is just a reference point and not something that you should really use as your absolute guide as they have had issues with the sticker being misplaced. The reason that the ride is so rough is that you are at near max psi of the airbag which is 120 psi. They recommend that you adjust the pressure...

Aside from that they both have the air bag and the shock to help improve ride quality. Attached are some review videos that you can check out.

  • Using Air Ride 5th Wheel Hitch Together With Air Ride Pin Box
    I've seen the Trailer Saver before, it looks like a great hitch but we don't have any personal experience with it. I've done some research though, and I can certainly see how a flexible linkage between the hitch and vehicle (air bags on the hitch) and a flexible linkage between the king pin and the fifth wheel (air bag in the pin box) could tend to amplify the chucking. I did some searching around, and really the only online opinions I can find pretty much mirror what Trailer Saver's...

  • How To Determine If The Trailer Will Be Level After Installing the Trailair Flex Air Pin Box
    The Trailair Flex Air 5th Wheel Pin Box part # LC369535 is an excellent option for an upgraded pin. In regards to dimensions, these will be similar to the pin box it replaces as the pin boxes that fit this bolt pattern are all relatively the same dimensions.

In order to be certain you will be level once everything is installed, it would be a good idea to measure this before hand....

The coupler acts as a buffer between the tow vehicle and trailer to minimize road shock. I have attached an installation...

  • Should I Deflate The Air Bag Of The TrailAir Pin Box When It's in Storage
    If you did leave air in the bag of the Trailair pin box like part # LC369535 it wouldn't be a big deal however, we do recommend to deflate the bag to keep the pressure off the bag and fittings while it's in storage. You definitely want to cover the pin box to avoid UV ray damage that causes dry rot of the rubber.

The air spring and shocks are the same on the unit designed for 21,000 lbs, so just the mounts on the trailer and the pin box itself is stronger.

    We haven't heard any reports of that specific combination having issues, but we do know that there have been issues with newer Ford trucks like your 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty. The problem with clearance will not have to do with the Flex Air as much as it will have to do with your trailer.
