I'm happy with mine and didn't have to do any upgrade.

As a newbie I'm in the same boat, considering replacing the solid pin box for something better. I've also ordered a B&W Companion 3600.

In fact, here's where I am with this, and I need to make a decision to take advantage of Black Friday sales that are ending soon. So, in order of consideration...

1) 5th Airborne 5AB-S500-700
21,000 lbs
Best price: $943 @ etrailer
Air bag and shock. Looks to buffer up/down (by 44%) but said to also buffer chucking by 60%. Those that have used it and the MorRyde seem to prefer to 5th Airborne.

2) MorRyde RPB72-1116-06
19,000 lbs
$599 Amazon
Simple chucking reducer that is very popular and with reports of being reasonably effective. Comes with many Montana's (not High Country).

3) Rotaflex 176440
19,000 lbs
$435 etrailer
Less common but found on some Grand Designs. Said to operate similarly to the MorRyde but by different means.

I actually wanted the Flex Air but it doesn't come in a 1116 version, so I think 5th Airborne is the closest. I've eliminated the TrailAir from consideration since despite being similar to the 5th Airborne it doesn't claim to be for chucking whereas 5th Airborne says it reduces chucking by 60% (accurate claim or not, it claims to serve that function). Also with the 5th Airborne the components are enclosed which I like.

I'm struggling way to hard with this decision!

I did the same research. Luckily my 2006 King of the Road came with the MoRryde from king pin box and the MoRryde suspension. Talk about pull like a dream.

I was pulling a hay hauler last week with a gooseneck style attachment. After having pulled the RV, you could notice a major difference.

Good luck!
