I use an Airsafe, either it is working or they got my dollars. I pull a 30' FC 2014 with a 3/4 Duramax and Reese Dusl Cam. Seems to be an ok quiet ride, just traded for another 30' FC 2018 ( on order) will stick with same hook up. Tire pressure on TV and Airstream is a consideration, highly recommend a TPMS .

Not all roads; just many; particularly those under construction. While in WVA, I ordered an AirRide hitch & had it delivered to home. Once home, I installed it between the truck & the Blue Ox Sway Pro. It has all but eliminated the bumps thereafter.
How hard was it to install? What product did you select, class lV or V? How much did it cost? I have a '15 27 FB and the Blue Ox, This seems like a good addition.

There are several threads on this forum you will find if you use the search function.

Experts in the industry call it " Axle Wrap " .
It is caused by the individual concrete slabs heaving and settling at differing heights. The joints are simply noise makers.
My ride improved 110 % going from the EZ lift torsion bar Hitch to the Blue Ox with the spring style. The ride is day and night and great sway prevention.
