Notes:

  • Do not use the Trailair Rota-Flex pin box with any type of gooseneck adapter.
  • The Trailair Rota-Flex is not compatible with Curt E-Series or Q-Series 5th wheel hitches.

The Rota-Flex pin box has a pivoting head and built-in rubber compound that help to reduce chucking and absorb road shock for a smoother ride as you tow your fifth-wheel trailer.


Pivoting Head Reduces Chucking

The Lippert Rota-Flex pin box has a pivoting head to help reduce chucking

The pivoting head on the Rota-Flex allows for controlled back and forth movement of the king pin to reduce the uncomfortable jarring known as chucking. Unlike a rigid pin box that has little give at the point where the trailer and the hitch are connected, the Rota-Flex can pivot slightly to compensate for those times that your trailer suddenly pushes or pulls on your tow vehicle. Because the pin box head - not the king pin itself - is moving, the chucking that often occurs when the king pin jerks around inside the hitch is significantly reduced.


Rubber Compound Absorbs Road Shock

The Lippert Rota-Flex pin box has a built-in rubber compound to help absorb road shock

A heavy-duty rubber compound is built into the head assembly of the Rota-Flex pin box. This rubber absorbs the bumps and vibrations, or road shock, experienced when towing a fifth-wheel trailer over rough roads. Standard pin boxes without any type of shock absorption transfer road shock to your trailer, resulting in potential damage to the trailer and an overall bumpy ride. The shock-absorbing rubber inside the Rota-Flex takes the beating so there's less wear and tear on your trailer or RV and you get a smoother ride.


Easy, Bolt-On Installation

The Rota-Flex is easy to install. Simply remove your existing Lippert 1621 or 1621HD pin box and install the Rota-Flex on your trailer or RV. The Rota-Flex uses the same bolts that held on your original pin box so no additional hardware is required. Plus, it comes out of the box ready to be put on your trailer, so no assembly is needed. Because the Rota-Flex is quite heavy, you should put it on an elevated surface or have a friend help you support its weight during installation.

The shipping container was not adequate for pin box. It was too large and no protective packing was used to protect the powder coated finish. When it was delivered by UPS the carton was destroyed. I had to repaint it as it was badly chipped from rough handling. I am disappointed in the performance as I do not see any difference in the chucking which is the reason why I purchased it. If I were to get a different 5th wheel I will not purchase a Rota-Flex again.

With the Rota-Flex, it is meant to reduce the amount of chucking that comes with hauling a 5th Wheel trailer. However, there are a lot of factors that can be the cause of chucking, such as: the nose being high or the nose being down, too much weight in the rear of the trailer, or even a 5th Wheel hitch that has a more loose or lower tolerances in the jaw. Due to all of these factors, you might not be able to notice any difference or the chucking can even become worse, depending on the situation. I also see that you have received some damage to your pin box, when it comes to shipping, it is possible that the pin box could have been scratched. We recommend using a rust-oleum type of paint to prevent any corrosion. I have a link below for your reference. I have also sent this information over to our customer service team for them to better assist you.

Received on Wed. as planned. With a little help from my forklift, I had this trail air pin box installed in few hours. Fit perfect on my Sabre. Drove around the block, about 4 miles. This pulls so nice, it is like nothing behind you. Thanks etrailer.



by:

Looks great on my 5th. If anyone else has wondered as I did and could not find anything online regarding the vertical height difference between this trail air rota flex and my standard lippert 1621. This pin box will reduce the nose of my 5th by 2" mounted in the same location. Now to pull my rear axle spacers on my dodge to get another 1.5" lower. Etrailer is great as always. Never had a problem with them and have ordered here many times. Thanks Etrailer!



by:

The product was great, The better part was how fast it got to me . I had it put on the camper the same day i had received it what was 3 days after my order. Now you can't beat the shipping. All my orders from ETrailer has been fast and on time . Thank you all at Etrailer.



by:

I was surprised at the difference one product could make in my towing experience! It really helped the chucking.



by:

The difference now compared to when I had my done is like night and day, no more chucking, very little if any jarring , the ride meets al my expectations

Fast shipping and item fits perfectly. Replaced old pin box by myself with a small tractor in about 45 minutes. Can't wait to try it out on my new toy hauler.



by:

A noticeable improvement over the standard pin box. It's most obvious when starting and stopping. It was very easy to install even for two 60+ women. We're happy with the purchase.



by:

The Trailair Roto-Flex is an excellent product. It really has smoothed out the ride and handling of my fifth wheel, especially over roads that aren't so perfect. I highly recommend this for an upgrade.



by:

This king pin assembly works well to get the chucking down. I do feel at times do to road conditions that I still feel some, but over all it has helped the ride and I feel it has take some abuse away from my truck and the trailer seems to ride better. Overall I am pleased with the kingpin assembly for the cost. The only thing I cannot do is put my cover on that was on my old kingpin.



by:

Great customer service and timely shipping.
Product
was as expected.



by:

Fast Shipping,Great product,It sure softens up the ride! Doesn't eliminate all the jerking but overall quite satisfied! Quality built product. Definitely not a one person job so seek out a helper to hold things Thanks Etrailer.

This king pin box came on my 5th wheel, it does not help the jerking at all. I am now looking to install a different pin box.

Thanks for the feedback. If you need help finding a different pin box, please let me know. We carry Ultra-Fab, Fifth Gear and Reese pin boxes in various versions.


by:

I received my order promptly, faster than expected for a large item. I paid for my pin box, checked the next day and etrailer had dropped the price, they refunded the difference which impressed me greatly. I am a repeat customer and have not had a bad experience ever.



by:

as Always one and done. keep it up

Came in mail packaged! Even the UPS man told me how etrailer is a legit company doing a great job shipping! Any in costumer service was great and her team had the price match over amazon done in one business day. Great to work with!!

The Trailair Rota-Flex pin box worked great. The pin box did the job by removing 80% of the chucking as we traveled.

Chelsea was very helpful and the product is very good. The Roto flex was very easy to install Great product.

Received the Roto flex pin box I ordered from etrailer in about a week. Arrived in good condition and perfect fit completely satisfied with etrailer on this order

I haven't opened the box yet, but it was shipped as fast or faster than I ever thought possible. As far as the product goes i am sure it arrived safe and sound. Good job!



by:

I purchased it as a direct replacement for the damaged on on my fifth wheel.



by:

The Roto Pin Box has eliminated 90% of my chucking. The only time I get any now is on a extreme bump but it settles down pretty quick. It was also very easy to install. Some of the bolts are a little tight to get to but doable.



by:

Had trouble receiving the hitch through UPS (they lost it --[48 miles from my residence] conversation with Stacy at etrailer and they shipped another, which my wife and I installed. etrailer was very helpful in sending another to replace the one UPS lost. Thanks so much

It got lost by UPS, but the service and customer service was great, received my product in excellent shape. This is a very good company to do business with. I will do business with them again. Thank you Paul.



by:

  • Pullrite Capture Plate for Rota-Flex Pin Box
    Per PullRite, measure from the front edge of your Trailair Rota-Flex Pin Box, # LC328330, to the leading edge of the king pin plate. If that measures 5-3/8" you need capture plate 331707. If it is 5" then you need capture plate 331760. This is not an item etrailer carries but you can purchase directly from PullRite.

    I checked with Andersen and they do state that their Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection can be used with the Trailair Rota-Flex 5th Wheel Pin Box like the part # LC328330 that you mentioned.

  • How Much is the Head Supposed to Pivot on Trailair Rota-Flex 5th Wheel Pin Box
    The head on the Trailair Rota-Flex 5th Wheel pin Box # LC328330 referenced in your question is designed to pivot slightly where the trailer and hitch are connected. This subtle pivot allows for controlled back and forth movement to reduce jarring and chucking, ultimately resulting in a safer and more comfortable ride. The skid plate on the pin box is still going to be quite stiff by design. Light jarring experienced while towing will not move this plate very much but any chucking experienced...

    I can tell you the procedure for replacing the jounce stops on the Rota-Flex pin box though the exact replacement parts are not available like you said. They are a rubber compound but the specifics of it I do not know. 1. With Long Needle-nose pliers, from the back of the pinbox, squeeze tag ends of Cotter Pin together and push it out of the Front Jounce Stop and it’s channel. Cotter Pin may need to be pulled out from the front of the pinbox to completely remove it from the Jounce Stop. 2....

  • Difficulty Getting Jaws to Open on B&W Companion Hitch with Rota-Flex Pin Box on Trailer
    The king pin on the Rota-Flex pin boxes does pivot and if you are parked on uneven ground then it is possible that the hitch jaws are bound up some. Moving the truck and trailer to level ground or even pulling forward or backward a little could be enough to release the tension and make it easier to uncouple the trailer. There isn't any sort of adjustment you can make on the pin box that would help. You could also try lubricating the moving parts of the hitch to make them easier to operate....

  • How to Determine What Pin Box a Trailer Has to Pick Out Replacement
    Sounds like you are looking for a pin box replacement. We don't have a way to determine what pin box your trailer currently has so we'd need you to get the pin box model and number off of it and we can pick you out the correct replacement. Can you check out what you have looking for any models or part numbers and get back to me with that info? Or you can check out the help article I attached on how to measure and determine what pin box you'd need.

  • Will the TrailAir Rota-Flex part # LC328330 Work on a 9,000 lb Trailer with a 1621 Pin Box
    Yes, the TrailAir Rota-Flex part # LC328330 would work perfectly on your trailer that weighs 9,000 lbs and has a Lippert 1621 pin box currently. Having a pin box that is rated for higher than what the trailer weighs is perfectly fine and definitely preferred over one that is underrated. This will also work well with your 16k fifth wheel hitch.
