Safari-Rick,

Forum member Tinsel Loaf has an air ride hitch. He might shed some light on the subject for you. I saw his hitch at the Pismo Forum Rally earlier in 2005, and it is a very impressive piece of equipment. i do not know if he uses the same brand as the one you are considering, though.
I would love to use on of these hitches as well. Tinsel Loaf reports that it eliminates all the expansion joint jarring that one experiences on SoCal freeways.

Easy Rider Air Hitch

I have pulled approx. 9,000 miles in the last 8 months with an Easy Rider on my F250 diesel pulling my 34FK model. Once you have pulled a couple hundred miles with the hitch setup, you will never leave home without the Easy Rider. It will eliminate (at least 90%) of the highway joint back slap and also the bridge end slaps. You will be able to look in the mirror and watch the trailer just sort of float. A somewhat large investment, but worth more in my opinion.

Hi DeCanada
We have been talking to Steve about the Easy Rider. Can this device stand alone or must there be another hitch added?. If another hitch is being used, which one is recommended and how is it hooked up?
Our Airstream dealer would not hear of it. Thank you in advance.

I've just spent the last three days at the Minnesota Inventors Congress. One of the inventions on display was very interesting.
Check out www.hell-ya.com for the Hitch Helper. It won an award and looks like a very good idea for trailers.
It won't work for long overhangs like on motorhomes as it does not castor.
The folks behind it are very nice and seem to have a super attitude. Other than meeting them there I do not have any other experience or connection to them.

Hello Glen

This is a great idea to be sure but look at www.hitch-buddy.com which resulted in some heated discussions on this forum during Nov. 2005. Are there any significant differences?

I't only been a year but is it still for sale? Also do you not tow any more, or have another reason for not using it.
