In partnership with supplier MORryde International, Jayco Inc. is utilizing the Orbital rotating rubber pin box on its line of Eagle HT fifth-wheel trailers which the manufacturer showcased during September’s Elkhart RV Open House.
According to a press release, the Orbital pin box employs MORryde’s rubber shear spring to provide turning rotation and towing smoothness while allowing short bed pick-up trucks to experience true 90-degree turning without the use of a slider hitch.
The rubber shear spring works to absorb the transfer of energy from the trailer to the truck, greatly reducing the jerking and chucking common to fifth-wheel towing. The Orbital rubber pin box features a simple, greaseable spindle providing smooth turning rotation. The product can also be used as a standard rubber pin box and allows for conventional towing due to its lock-out feature.
Eagle HT is the only product line combining the Orbital pin box with MORryde’s CRE3000 rubber equalizer system. As a result, Eagle HT offers “tip to tail towing smoothness,” the release stated.
