Here is my setup with just Airlift 1000 bags. Hardly any squat. A WD hitch is in my future eventually just because when I'm fully loaded I got a hitch weight of around 900lbs. But for now it's not bad.

I tow a 30' camper, and have done so with several vehicles. My recommendation would be a WD hitch. The tow vehicle prior to the Ram was an 04 Durango and we never had any problems.

I have towed a lot of different types of trailers, and the best I have found for TT hitches is that one right there! I currently have a new Fun Finder X-215-wsk 24 footer, 6040lbs if fully loaded, when big rigs pass, or being passed, you get no sway.

Pulled a 6000 pound with out a weight distributor hitch and it pulled it fine, sagged a little. I would recommend the weight distributor hitch for sure. Never used airbags before so I am no help with that part.
