Trailer Saver air ride hitch

Considering upgrading my hitch for a Trailer Saver BD5. Aside from the sky high price, anyone with experience with a TS3 or BD3?

The BD5 is the new model made for factory pucks.

Tom you could also change your pin box to a TrailAire, had one on my last fifth whee!.....they ride really great, but are pricey.

Jack

Thought about that too but figured the trailer saver was a little easier on install and I would keep it if I ever got a new trailer vs. having to keep the old pin box laying around to swap back.

That hitch is mucho money as well.

Yeah they are both expensive. But it is a much better ride. Still want to get airbags on truck and auxiliary fuel tank. It's ALL expensive!! LOL

If I had deeper pockets and a fifth wheel Tom, I’d go for it. In the past when we had fifth wheels, I’ve had the ridged pin box, trail air tri glide etc. If I could, trailer saver hitch with MORryde pin box. The trail air pin box only did so much. I found the MORryde better. Combine a MORryde pin box with the trailer saver and I don’t think you can get any better.

I figured out how to make camping seem cheaper. I quit camping in 1981 and drove these for 11 yrs. After that camping was a lot cheaper hobby.

Thanks John

Kinda my thoughts too. The morryde pin box does pretty good but with the trailer saver hitch, that set up would be the cats meow.
