Trailair on lightweight trailer?

I have an opportunity to pick up a Trailair "Tri-glide" at a really good price. It is the correct pin box for my 28.5RSTS. The effort to install is a bigger issue for me than the price.

My question is: Will it work well on a lightweight trailer?

The Trailair pin box is rated for 18,000 pounds and I am running just over half that (about 9500) with only about a 1600# pin weight. But I don't see that Lippert makes a lower rated unit (unlike MorRyde, which has a series of pin boxes for different GVW).

I really don't "need" this upgrade - the Pullrite hitch upgrade has gone a long way to reducing my chucking. So I am looking for any and all advice before taking on a project like this.

Thought I would bump this once in the hope that someone would have input on the TrailAir with a 10K pound trailer.

Back in the day they would offer different air springs I believe. It's simple, you air it up till a line on the shock is visible from the dust shield. Lighter, less air pressure needed to expose the line. Heavier, more air needed. I would contact trailair for their advice.

Yea, I was thinking along the same lines. Listed @ $325 but I can probably get it for 300.
