Note the self-lubricating composite material can move in many different directions and still maintain a level position with the side rails. That is the reason why we have ”True Air” 8 Way Action (Actually more than 8 ways, but who’s counting) (Omni Directional Control). No other hitch system that we know of can do this. All composite 20K and 25k 5th wheels are machined and designed with multi direction control sockets. In over two years of commercial towing, less than .005 wear factor (aprox. 200,000 miles).
The competition can only move up and down, they can only achieve 4 way action with the use of a mechanical left-right (Swivel) anvil but their air control in only up-down. If it swivels side to side, it is mechanical, not ”True Air”, and transfers velocity, uncontrolled by the air springs. No matter what their claims about 4 way action or especially 8 way action, it is bogus, they may have air bags under the anvil but the bags are NOT controlling the action, just softening the ride. We really can offer the “Smoothest, Safest” ride because of our “True Air” technology.
Also note the four bolts in the top of the tracks, if you should ever have a problem (and you shouldn’t) just remove the bolts and have easy access for repair or cleaning (Try that with a competitors hitch).
