I've posted this in 2 other forums on COTH but haven't gotten much response. Most of the sellers of these hitches keep saying the western people are using them so...wondering if anyone actually uses these cushioned hitches & if so, do they help & which hitch?
thanks

No experience, but I googled, and while I didn't find anything specific to air- ride reviews I did find this site, which in general seems worthwhile

And this paltry bit, but it seems to be a neutral site, where someone else posted

Here is a better, longer discussion

Good luck.

Thanks Chall. I've seen all of those as I've been googling like crazy. It seems that not many people are using these hitches.

Looks like the Cody Hitch only moves up and down. IMO, most of the feedback we got from our trailer was fore and aft.

I was seriously looking at the air hitches also and decided to try the coupler I mentioned in the other thread. I would give that a try and save your coin for air bags on the truck if you need more relief later.

It's a five minute install, if you don't like it, send it back.
