Is your trailer a fifth wheel or a TT? I don't recognize the model number.

Looks like a beautiful unit. I'm sure you'll love it.

Getting ready to order one as a matter of fact. Any issues or pointers yet? We're going to try to put a 5th Airborne Premium 5th Wheel Air Ride King Pin w/ Sidewinder on after it gets to the dealer if it works out. No one at Jayco can tell me the standard Lippert that comes on it to tell if the Airborne is even compatible. Any ideas? I know most people do a dealer upgrade option to the Morryde rubber pin box so its hard to figure it out.

Thanks!

We ordered the Moryde pin box for the unit also am using a pull rite 16 k super glide hitch.Towed approx. 200 miles home from the dealer,primarily interstate reds. towed great ! No chucking or unusual noises.Few annoying items, noticed after getting home,like the radio playing static,(believe it's an antenna disconnected) batteries not tied down properly in compartment,addressing these issues now,let all know how that goes.Will probably not go on a shake down run for about a month,were in Western Pa.
One suggestion I do have is to order the wireless camera system,worked great in being able to see if someone is up on your rear,also has a sound feature for your backer to communicate
In general so far happy with the choice good luck to you.post when you get it!

Thanks Lanced! We will keep those comments in mind! Anything I can glean as a newbie is going to be great.

So, I finally got word that the standard pin box that comes with the 317RLOK is the Lippert 1621, or LPBX1621. This is good news because now I know the 5th Airborne Premium 5th Wheel Air Ride King Pin w/ Sidewinder and Turret - 16,000# RP61422 is going to work! Now to make sure it's compatible with the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 25,000# BWRVK3600. I'm adding the model numbers in case anyone else needs them! The people at etrailer dot com are being a great help in this endeavor, so I have to give them props. Prices are pretty good too!

We just order our 317RLOK about 4 week ago can't wait for to get here . I also had them add the Moryde pin box , our old 5TH wheel had the standard pin box on it and it's not very smooth on the road I hope this will be an improvement .
