Looking for an air hitch for my pickup and ran across this one.http://www.comfortridehitch.com/locations.html My truck is limited to 16,000 lbs towing. Anyone have any experience with this hitch. It seems a little light weight but then again its for a pickup not a HDT. The 308 specs would handle the HDT market if its any good and the price is right.

Yep that looks something like mine. I have the proto type modle if it is the same company I purchased mine from.

I have a few things to do to it to make it more user friendly, but i suspect they fixed my little issues in there final production

A little learning curve for hooking and unhooking. I bolted mine to a 1/2 inch plate then to the frame with angle iron. 8000 or more km so far and every thing is holding up fine.

Mine also looks to be a little heavier build.

What I found out was to reinforce the air bags direction. Bought the trailersaver bd3 with the ford in bed mount. Ordered today said it would be at the trucking company terminal tomorrow. Now that's fast service. They had a end of year special that motivated me to go ahead with it, if others are interested its a discount plus free shipping.

Their hitch, Hensely, wouldn't fit my application and they wouldn't provide any customizing. Hitch Crafters provided us with a great hitch. Both are great hitches but you get more for your money since Hitch Crafters comes standard with air compressor and sensor to maintain ride height.

not that computer smart. that really sucks. Caused the OP to think I was posting about the other hitch.

 

 

When you are ready to link something, type Enter twice, paste the link in and hit Enter two more times and it should be good. There are harder ways that look prettier but that is the simplest way that I've found.

I like the anti friction plastic pad on the hitch plate.

Grease it anyway. The HDPE is good, but you want as close to zero drag for good tracking of the trailer. Especially critical on icy or other wise slick roads, as any off tracking of the trailer when you break is the beginning of a jackknife. This includes that lovely blanket of wet leaves when you are on the fall color tour.
