Default Air suspension - Anybody loaded it up?

How does the load leveling work with significant weight in the back? Any feedback with the air suspension under load is welcome. I plan on regularly carrying a 1200 lb. load. (Camper)

On my current ram, I use timbrens to keep the truck level.

Thanks in advance!

Someone on this site said that they put around 1400 pounds in their truck and it leveled right out and the compressor barly ran.

Interesting. All the posts and forums, I've not read of anyone having a camper in the bed of their truck full-time, so to speak and the air suspension. It'll be interesting to see how it works out. Would love to see some pics of your current set-up.

Can you check the payload sticker on your door?
