The pinbox was switch from the Atwood AB34 to a different design sometime shortly before the end of the original 5.0 model, so before the start of the 5.0TA. I haven't seen the make or model of the new one, but Bob showed a photo of his in post #9 of Toyota Tundra towing.

Hi: TRF18... Looks to me like at least part of it is Lippert Components Inc. Don't quote me on that though!!! Best to confirm with Reace @ ETI. Alf

Can't see a name plate or such. The inside does rust though...

If only one component is Lippert then my guess would be that this the lower section - the actual pin box - but I suspect that the whole thing is Lippert. Lippert's online store only shows the 1621 pin box assembly which has more bolt holes (more height adjustment choices) and a differently shaped upper section than what I have seen on an Escape, but they publish a standard pin box component sheet which shows the various models. I think Escape is using the 1716 model.

eTrailer much more clearly shows the Lippert 1716... maybe Alf or another owner of this model can confirm that it looks right. Of course, Reace has the definitive answer.

This link didn't work for me today - it is now slightly different:

I believe Brian is correct. The link to eTrailer to the Lippert 1716 appears to be the pinbox that is in my 5.0TA.
