I thought a class IV was good for 1045 pnds. max on our trucks, so you should be fine for hitch weight. Airbags could help, at only $100 for an airlift 1000 it's cheap insurance, but it's not 100% required. HD cooling is required though, just make sure your truck has that.

Don't sweat it, I know it seems intimidating for a newbie (that was me last year) but it'll all become simple once you get some time under your belt.

RV'ing is really fantastic, I betcha you'll end up loving it.
I need better tires, I'm on the Wrangler HP but they'll have to do until next summer. Would airbags help with loads on tires? I don't know how that works. What do airbags do?

Boubou,

The airbags simply level the load and isolate the truck from some of the hard bounces and jounces. They won't change the tongue weight.

So they would bring the back of the truck back up a bit?
That wouldn't change my set up on the Reese WD would it?
right now, the WD is set up so that the front axles are the same loaded as they are unloaded.
