Rubber Shear Spring Absorbs and Dampens Road Shock

Most standard pin boxes are constructed of steel and are built with the sole purpose of connecting your fifth-wheel trailer to your tow vehicle. There is no cushioning built in, so a factory pin box doesn't do anything to provide a comfortable ride when you're hauling your fifth-wheel trailer.


This MORryde pin box, however, is built with an internal rubber spring that absorbs road shock and vibration at the connection point. So if you're driving on unpaved roads or uneven pavement, this pin box will prevent any road shock and vibration you encounter from transferring from your tow vehicle to your fifth-wheel trailer and vice versa. In other words, the rubber spring takes the brunt of the impact so you and your towing setup don't have to. And because this unit uses a rubber spring instead of an internal air bag like some other upgraded pin boxes, there's no maintenance required.


Although this pin box can tow up to 18,000 lbs, the internal rubber shear spring is optimized for trailers that range from 11,501 to 14,000 lbs. A rubber spring built for 18,000-lb trailers would be too stiff to provide any cushion for an 11,500-lb trailer, while a rubber spring built for 11,500-lb trailers would be too flexible for a 18,000-lb trailer. To get the best results from this cushioned pin box, the sweet spot is a trailer in the 11,501-lb to 14,000-lb range.


Less Chucking for a Better Ride

Chucking, the back-and-forth jerking movement you feel in your cab when towing, occurs most frequently during starts and stops and while making turns. A typical, factory pin box creates a rigid connection without much give. So when a harsh stop occurs, all of the trailer's forward momentum gets forced through that stiff connection, slamming the king pin in the hitch and jerking your truck around.


To combat this, glide pads are built into the MORryde pin box that allow the skid plate to shift up to 3" forward and backward and 1-1/2" side to side to compensate for some of that violent motion so that you don't have to feel it in your cab.


Bolt-On Installation

How To Install MORryde Pin Box

This MORryde pin box is a direct replacement for your existing Lippert 1716 pin box, so the installation is very straightforward. After removing your old pin box, the MORryde can be mounted into place using the same hardware and bolt holes used by the factory pin box.


MORryde Pin Box Bolt-On Installation

Because of the weight of the unit, you'll want a couple of friends to help you lift it into place during installation. Once the hardware is securely bolted down, you'll be ready to go.

Video Transcript for MORryde Cushioned 5th Wheel Pin Box Review

Hi there 5th wheel owners. Today, we're going to be taking a look at Morryde's line of rubber pin boxes. The rubber pin boxes from Morryde offer a much smoother driving experience when hauling your 5th wheel trailer. There are several rubber bushings and shear pins in here that allows movement of our 5th wheel trailer, while keeping our pin box here, where it attaches to the king pin keeps that static down here. And it's able to do this using all the various rubber bumpers inside as well as the shafts here that makes sure that everything is going to stay all together. We're now going to take it out onto our test course.

First, we're going to hit our uneven bump section. That's going to mimic a pothole. Next, we're going to hit our even bump section. That's going to mimic going over a speed bump. And then we're going to see what it's like when we do like a hard turn.

We're going to go ahead and turn around right here. Put it under a nice turn. You can see it still turn just like a normal pin box would.While driving this, the performance benefits seem very similar to an Air Ride pin box. What I've noticed though, is those Air Ride pin boxes you do have to air them up. There is a little bit of maintenance there because the pressure does change as temperatures change, so you do have to just keep an eye on those, whereas something like this is a completely maintenance free option due to the rubber pads.

The pads are replaceable so if over time, maybe many years of service, they start to wear down a little bit, you can replace them.Up at front, we have a crushed bumper here. There's also one just like this located in the back. And this is really for when you're stopping and starting, and only if it's an extreme movement because it will slide on these shafts. The trailer will slide forward and as it does, this bumper here, will contact on the surface up here if you do have enough forward motion. So I guess maybe an emergency stop, you slam on the brakes and the trailer goes up, this bumper is going to adhere.

All these components are going to absorb that impact, so you're not going to feel it nearly as much as you would if you just had a solid pin hooked up to your truck. It would just be, boom. It would be very abrupt. Something like this is going to help absorb that impact, but we do also have our shear spring down inside here that allows for movement as well. That sheer spring is kind of the most magic part of the assembly. That's what determines the amount of weight that the pin box is rated for.Our glide pads here are a self-lubricating material and these allow it to slide easily on the surface. You can almost see it kind of here. This one's been out in service for a while and you can kind of see how it's nice and shiny in this location here where the puck does glide on it. So it helps support that weight up, so the sheer spring can its job properly dampening the movement because the main purpose of getting a rubber pin box like this is to smooth out your ride to help reduce chucking and jerking whenever you take off and whenever you stop. It really does help to absorb a lot of that.The movement that we do have available here, we'll have about three inches of forward and backward movement and about an inch and a half of side to side movement. Not so much side to side. It's mainly that forward and backward because it's mostly starting, stopping. That is where there's really going to make a huge difference in the feel of your trailer. You're not going to feel like every time you take off, like you're lugging this big load. It kind of eases it in, so you can just take off and it feels much smoother and then when you come to a stop, it's not like you have all this weight just barreling and pushing on you. It kind of absorbs a lot of that and it's just a much smoother operation that just overall, it's going to give you more control over your trailer because you're just going to feel like you have more control. You're not going to be as tired and gripping the wheel as much. Just really overall is just going to smooth things out and give you a little more energy when you get to your destination and overall, be more comfortable for all of your passengers.There's a few things to keep in mind when determining the pin box for your trailer. There are various different ratings for the Morryde pin boxes and also the fits. You'll want to know the make of your trailer. You'll want to know the trailer's weight rating, not the pin box's rating that you currently have. You don't want to use that. You want to know how heavy your trailer is. And you'll be using those to help determine which replacement Morryde is going to be for your trailer. And that completes our look at Morryde's line of rubber pin boxes.

Review from a similar Cushioned 5th Wheel Pin in Fifth Wheel King Pin


The king pin box was delivered in perfect shape. Metal banded, strapped to a wood pallet in a card board box. Upon installation it fit perfect. The customer support was excellent throughout the whole process from the ordering, making sure the correct king pin box was selected, to follow up, due to the long wait. The long wait was due to Covid 19. I am a happy camper and cannot wait to try it out on the road soon. I will send a follow up review. Thanks etrailer and especially Christina J. she answered all my questions and followed up on time every time.
