Overall towing safety, comfort, reduced wear and tear, fuel savings, on both vehicles towing independently is achieved thru the positive control of all transference.

Most people are also compounding all the negative forces by overloading their truck and trailer. Trailer Life, writer Ken Freund stated: “When you overload a vehicle, you are using yourself and your family as test pilots to find out what fails first. It also puts all other users of the road at risk.

With deteriorating road conditions any tow vehicle will produce negative transference thousands of times per mile. With a conventional standard lock down hitch all your transference is 100%.

Any trailer on its own produces and transfers 100% of all the same Omni-directional negative shock forces that is transferred to the tow vehicle because of the conventional hitch.

Colliding occurrence transfers and adds velocity between these 2 objects once a body starts in motion stays in motion until it is absorbed or transferred. With a conventional hitch both are the absorber/transferor.

When you properly configure a way to absorb all these negative Omni-directional forces,  you eliminate/absorb 80% to 95% of these negative forces,  allowing a more independent towing situation.

Our System utilizes “HEAVY DUTY” air bags to absorb the shock, bounce and vibration that usually come with pulling a trailer with a hard connection tow hitch. This allows the trailer to rock back and forth on its natural axis as it was originally designed to do. Our hitches will fit your Fifth (5th) Wheel, Gooseneck, and Receiver hitches.

Do You Have a Short Bed Truck?

 

We do not offer a slider hitch. If you are have a new trailer or a used one that was manufactured in the past couple of years you may not need a slider hitch. The newer trailer are designed for short bed trucks. The trailer have extended kingpins and round front trailer corners. If you have a newer trailer and don’t need a slider than I would recommend the 25K Omni-Directional AirSafe hitch. This will give you up and down, front to back, side to side and corner to corner control and improve your ride by over 90%. If you need a slider then I would recommend the AirSafe Air Pin Box for your trailer and use it with a standard rigid 5th wheel hitch with slider. Our hitch will mount in any standard rail, Reese, Husky, Curt, Valley, etc. See the chart below to see the ride height and adjustments.

Benefits of an Air Safe Hitch

The bottom line is the ride. Enjoy an 90% smoother ride and a 75% safer tow. Driver fatigue is greatly reduced and your family, friends, and animals will enjoy the smoother, less bouncy ride. The wear and tear on your truck and trailer will be greatly reduced.

 

You can add air springs to the truck and to the trailer, but this will not fix the problem if you still have a hard connection hitch. Fix the problem at the source, with our Air Ride Trailer Hitches you do not need air suspension on the trailer or truck unless you just want all the comfort you can get and don't mind paying for it.

 

The Air Ride Hitch is a lasting investment as it can be easily transferred to a new vehicle and give you years and years of good service.

We Offer The Most Complete Line Of “Air Ride” Hitches From Any One Manufacturer

 

The best example I can think of is going over a speed bump. The front wheels go over the bump (thump), the rear wheels go over the bump (thump), the trailer goes over the bump (thump). This is hard on equipment and passengers. With the Air Ride Hitch the front wheels go thump, the rear wheels go thump, the trailer goes over the bump and all you notice the trailer gently rise up and down (NO THUMP), in reverse, the trailer did not feel the truck go over the bump either. Imagine eliminating this much of the bumps on a concrete highway with tar strips every few feet. It is a big difference and a vast improvement for all.

 

If you tow with a light truck or SUV you are probably experiencing problems caused by light or mushy suspension supplied by the manufacturer for a smoother ride. This causes the suspension to wear out quicker and can also make for some very scary moments when doing a quick, emergency evasive maneuver. The “Air Ride” Hitch System eliminates these problems as the airbag is absorbing most of the road shock and vibration you have experienced in the past. As the two units move independently from each other, the trailer tracks better and rough road handling problems are virtually eliminated. There will be a big, big savings on the wear and tear of your suspension also.

 

Medium Duty Truck owners (International, Freightliner, Ford 450-550). If you are towing with one of the larger trucks you probably have experienced or seen broken welds and other problems like side wall flexing because of the heavy duty suspensions on these rigs (if you haven't you will eventually, as all the trailers will break up given time, these are expensive repairs). Just to stiff for RVs to handle. They are great trucks and can still be used without any problems as the Air Ride Hitch eliminates all the above problems. Your trailer has no idea what the truck suspension is doing as it is separated and cushioned from the truck by the airbags. Some trailer manufactures are voiding warranties on their trailers if they are towed with anything heavier than a standard one ton truck.

AIRSAFE™ Class V, VI, VII, VIII Receiver Hitches

With AIRSAFE™ you stop the flow of shock flow between the tow vehicle to the trailer and greatly reduce the explosion of energy when these two forces meet. The patented AIRSAFE™ hitches are engineered so the connection to the trailer is separated from the connection to the tow vehicle by an industrial strength airbag. The air bags sit between the steel shank plate and the steel ball mount plate which glides on high strength self lubricating Nyloil. The two plates are connected by four high strength steel tie-rods . Each steel tie rod has a 16,200 lb tow rating giving you the security of knowing these connections far exceeds the towing requirements. We then bring it all together with a two year warranty making the world's finest engineered and most technically advanced AIRSAFE™ Receiver line.

 

There is another element that causes energies to collide with rigid connections. Any upward or downward motion actually shortens the overall length of the two vehicles This is where the shock factor becomes dangerous. Let's explain by thinking about a door hinge lying flat on a table. The metal hinge represents the full distance from the front of the tow vehicle to the back of the trailer. If the tow vehicle drives over a bump it forces the rear of the vehicle upward bringing the vehicles closer together. Since metal does not stretch, the two parts of the hinge are at their longest when flat. Once you lift up on the hinge the two ends start coming towards each other and the distance from end to end id shortened. When we then go back downward the two start to lengthen until they are at their longest point when in the level position.

 

The same is true with a truck pulling a trailer. When the tongue is parallel with the ground the two are at their greatest length. If the truck hits a bump and drives the rear upward the two actually become shorter. If the tow vehicle weighs less than the trailer than the tow vehicle will actually pull backwards. This forward and back motion is what destroys transmissions and causes severe metal and personal fatigue. Now break that rigid connection by using our AIRSAFE™ receiver ,the results, over 90% reductions in shock transfer and a safer smoother ride.

 

When using an AIRSAFE™ Class V, VI, VII or VIII receiver you will do the following: Insert the AIRSAFE™ hitch into the receiver. Pin and make sure all mounts are properly tightened. Lower the trailer onto the ball. Now add air through the top stem until the steel tie rods are parallel . In this case we are using a simple hand held pump. In most cases less than 60 psi will be necessary for proper inflation.

 

If for any reason air pressure is lost in the AIRSAFE™ products, they will simply turn into a rigid connection.

 

Weight distribution must be used in accordance with manufacturer's recommendations. Please check vehicle owner's manual for correct application. In some of the video scenes or other support material we have forgone the use of the weight distribution system for demonstration purposes only.

 

Please take a moment to watch the video on line or order our DVD from directly from AIRSAFE HITCH. In our video we took 32 foot toy hauler over three sets of rail road tracks. When the rear of the tow vehicle moves it does not force the tongue with it. This is how we eliminate shock transfer.

 

Ever wonder why you get so fatigued when you are pulling a trailer? Its simple, the shock from the trailer is being transferred to the vehicle and these forces collide. In the video we compare two rear view mirrors, one using a traditional rigid connection showing and the other using the patented AIRSAFE™ receiver. The rigid connection shows how shock waves are thrown in all directions inside the tow vehicle while the AIRSAFE™ vehicle shows a smooth , safe ride. We then run them it in slow motion so you can clearly see shock forces thrown in all directions with the traditional rigid connection causing loss of steering control, white knuckles and sore lower backs.

 

With the traditional rigid connection the tow vehicle hits potholes, dips or road heaves it throws the vehicle of its center course, in an instant you are over the bump or dip attempting to get back on course, then the trailer hits the same obstacle and transfers its forces back to you , the end results, shock energy flying In all directions.

 

With AIRSAFE™ hitches we reduce as much as 90% of this shock through its patented air hitch design insuring you a safe and comfortable ride. You can see and feel the difference.

 

AIRSAFE™ Receivers are virtually maintenance free and are the only air hitch products specifically designed to be used with weight distribution systems. Simply attach the spring and trunnion bar the same way you would on a traditional rigid connection. Then lower the tongue weight onto the ball and inflate the airbag until the steel tie rods are level. You will see it come into perfect balance. You are now driving with the regular use of weight distributed 1/3, 1/3 and 1/3.

 

We then take the vehicle and trailer across three sets of rail road tracks , in the video keep you eyes on the two steel tie rods. When the rear axle of the vehicle hits the rail road tracks it instantly drops into the rail bed rut, and then jumps back out of the rut which would normally transfer energy back to the trailer. But instead the shock is absorbed in the airbag and the 4 steel tie-rods quickly adjust for maximum stabilization. Because the industrial strength air bag is between the truck and vehicle connection the shock is absorbed in the airbag. We then show it in slow motion. Instead of calling it shock or G force lets look at it as electricity. When the truck hits the tracks it sends its electric current back to the trailer. But, the electrical circuit can not transfer to the trailer because the current is broken by the air bag and can not be transferred back to the trailer keeping your dishes in place, protecting electronics , greatly reducing metal fatigue and keeps your precious cargo safe. We then go back to normal speed, you will watch as trailer hits the tracks, there is virtually no shock transferred back up to the tow vehicle.

 

To prove the point even further we took a Chevy ton pick-up and pulled a 28 foot Class B trailer. This was for demo purposes only, weight distribution must be used in accordance with manufacturer’s recommendations. Check vehicle owner’s manual for correct application.

 

If you have a 2 ” receiver than our AIRSAFE™ Class VII or Class VIII is our recommended hitch. Featuring a solid 2 shank the class 7 has a rating of 25,000lb GVTW and a 2,500lb tongue weight and the Class VIII with a 30,000lb GVTW and a 3,000lb Tongue weight. . The Class VII and Class VIII come equipped with a custom made commercial air bag giving you extreme lifting capabilities. AIRSAFE is the only hitch manufacturer to offer this high a rating. With our Class VIII AIRSAFE™ Receiver hitch we not only feature a 2 ” solid steel shank but also add two additional steel tie rods giving a shock towing rating of 97,200lbs!

 

AIRSAFE™ CLASS III/IV Tongue weight 600 lbs, GVTW 6,000 lbs

We then demonstrated our Class III/IV AIRSAFE™ receiver ideal for pulling medium size trailers. Its unique hinge design allows us to produce a light weight, compact yet durable air hitch. Simply lower the tongue onto the ball and lock in place. Then add air until the plate just comes in contact with the white urethane stops giving you the perfect air hitch connection.


The AIRSAFE™ Class III/IV comes standard with a sway control ball mount location, but by using the AIRSAFE™ hitch you may find the sway control is no longer needed since the shock is no longer thrown in all directions.

 

To demonstrate this product, we drove over large speed bumps proving how well the AIRSAFE™ hitch reduces shock transfer. You must watch the video to see just how impressive this AIRSAFE™ Class III/IV performs. The Class III/IV is ideal for pulling many kinds of cargo, boats ATV’s, Personal Water Craft, or a load of materials home from your home supplier. Your cargo stays in place. Your electronic depth finder and electronic gages will thank you.

 

OMNI-DIRECTIONAL AIRSAFE™ 20K and 25K 5th Wheels

With AIRSAFE™ you stop the flow of shock flow between the tow vehicle to the trailer and greatly reduce the explosion of energy when these two forces meet. The patented AIRSAFE™ hitches are engineered so the connection to the trailer is separated from the connection to the tow vehicle by an industrial strength airbag.

 

For the big jobs AIRSAFE™ offers our patented Omni-Directional 20K and 25K air hitch 5th wheel products. Once connected to the trailer simply adjust air levels for proper ride height. This maintenance free patented Omni-Directional (multi- directional ) system features 4 unique air bags located in each corner of the towers, all air bags are connected by lines allowing a free flow of air from bag to bag giving you a smooth , controlled ride. If for any reason air pressure is lost in the AIRSAFE™ products, they will simply turn into a rigid connection.

 

With trailers getting larger and with more accessories such as slide-outs there has never been a greater need for AIRSAFE™ products. What is amazing is the huge amount of shock these large trailers transfer to the tow vehicle and how the AIRSAFE™ omni- directional system, absorbs this shock.

 

In our video you can watch as energy is transferred from the front of the 5th wheel to the back of the fifth wheel during acceleration and again during braking. You will then see how our Omni-Directional AIRSAFE™ hitch controls this motion greatly increases braking control since all of the weight of the tow vehicle and trailer is distributed evenly giving you increased positive contact.

 

You can watch the side to side, corner to corner movement being absorbed by this AIRSAFE™ 5th wheel during routine turns. The tow vehicle and trailer track independently giving you greater control and added safety virtually eliminating sway. You keep control over bumps, potholes, expansion joints, curves, hills and other road hazards.
