We pull a 17' Casita Spirit Deluxe. It's on a 3500lb axle, so my truck is like..."What camper?". I still use a WDH, anti-sway bar, and am getting the Timbren suspension thingies. The truck rides like a giant boat when pulling, really nice.

Thanks for all the replies. The replies and pics give me an idea of what I'm looking at suspension wise (squatting and ride) and true pulling capabilities.

This picture was before the leveling kit was installed. The camper is 26ft, roughly 8500-9000lbs when loaded. The truck does not even know it is back there. I have a hemi and 3.92 gears.

That is a good looking set up. Looks like the truck sits pretty level. Do you have any pics of your truck after the lift and tires? Sweet looking ride!

Hemi QC 4x4 w/ 3.92 LSD. I pull a 31 ft TT that is 7-8,000 lbs depending upon what I carry. I also use a 10K Equal-i-zer anti-sway hitch. No issues at all. I do have a little squat on hook-up. Not enough to be concerned about though. It just levels out the truck
