I just put my Class V AirSafe on a scale, and with the balls on it and hitch lock ready for towing, the weight is 77 pounds. That thing is made of very heavy gauge steel. It's made to last. The bags are Firestones, the same as are used on air ride suspensions and lifts and can be replaced if they're ever damaged.

I've been using my AirSafe since 2006 from coast to coast. It provides all the benefits stated on their website. It has stopped the riven-popping and skin-shearing I was experiencing towing with a heavy duty pickup.

I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.

As an update, the Class 6 has performed flawlessly and in the few years I've had it, I can honestly say this is one great (though expensive) piece of engineering. The 3/4 ton is really hard on the trailer and the 3/4 ton jounce with the rigid connection is virtually non-existent with this in place.

If you have anything more than a 1/2 or equiv vehicle, I can say without question, this is a good piece of equipment to have, though I will admit, I no longer need a heath club membership since mounting and dismounting this from the receiver on the truck....she's a heavy monster, only exacerbated by the fact I have the Enkay mud flaps attached to it too, but well worth it IMHO.

Just take your time. It will be worth it.
I am looking at selling my HaHA and getting this setup. Can someone post the model numbers of the reese strait line dual cam wd system.
When I look at them on line, there seem to be many variations of the reese system.

Maybe someone else can field this question for Air-Texas.

The Reese set up I'm using is an old system that is from 1987. It' has the 1000# bars. Of course, the AirSafe hitch portion is only a few years old.

I am not familiar enough with the new Reese products to state which one is right for you.

Thanks Bluto, Reese has many different products out there, and I do not know enough about them to pick the right one..

I may be mistaken, but I think the Dual Cam system is an "add on" to the Reese Staight Line hitch. A year or so, I sold my original Reese Dual Cam with an SOB (Open Range) that I sold.
When I bought the AS that we now have, I bought a new style Dual Cam, for the current AS.
Just make sure that when you buy, to get the 800 pound trunnion bars. Mine came with the 1,200, and even with the AirSafe, it is overkill. I finally found a set of 800 pound bars.....
You will like the AirSafe/Reese set up, especially when you are hooking up, and unhooking...

We put a class 6 on the 3500 Chevrolet in 2008, use it to tow our 34' Limited. Like the others much smoother ride over concrete roads and much less shock transmitted to the coach from the HD suspension of the truck. We have a Reese hitch and use the 600 lb bars. Highly recommended!

You need something like this:

Reese 66082 Weight Distribution Strait Line 600 Trunnion Bar w Shank | eBay

I spec'd out the 600# bars, but this gives you a general idea of whatcha need.

Thanks. There are so many model numbers on line, that it's hard to find the right one.

If possible, would like to see a couple of photos from different angles with the Airsafe and an Equalizer WD hitch. Thanks
