There should be a # stamped into your Lippert pin box. Where ever you decide to purchase from, give them that # and they will be able to set you up with the right Mor-Ryde.
I put the Mor-Ryde on a couple years ago. Made a big difference.

I have had noticeable improvement with a DEMCO Glide Ride. No need to match GVW as it works on a different principle. I have reduced my chucking considerably. With the Moreryde you can get some extra motion when the compressed rubber "unloads", and you need to match the weight of the trailer not the pin weight.

I purchased the roto-flex hitch through Crossroads for about 1/2 the price of the morryde or demco shipped directly from Lippert. It made the ride quite a bit better, good upgrade for me.

I had Crossroads install the roto flex pin box They had the best price and knew how to install it. Improved the ride. Value worth the price.

The morryde looks to be around $600.. I can get this hitch "roto-flex hitch" half the price ? have the link to this hitch?

Thanks bill. For some reason i needed to know the pin weight. Wierd.. I will call again, I might just have to wait till i get the camper out of storage in a week or so to see the numbers.

Thanks "old farmer" for the link. The one i had the price was a bit more. Yours tweety link was cheaper.

Why, Thank folks.. Where is the links? hehehehehe.. LOL..

You can call Angela Kniffen at Crossroads Customer Service on the roto-flex hitch. I paid $325.00 for the hitch which included the shipping buying it direct from Crossroads.

OH,, Not the hitch in the bed in the truck, But rather the Pin box, Correct?
Like this? http://www.tweetys.com/ProductImages...s/rotoflex.pdf

I never seen that type before, Interesting. It is different than the morryde for sure.

like the roto-flex pin box. Our '07 cruiser didn't have it and our '10 cruiser does. Much better ride.
