Default Sagging question

Hey all, got another question. I have recently purchased a bumper pull camper with a dry weight of just over 4500lbs. I am curious if I will need helper springs since I have a lefted truck or will an equalizer hitch make up for the sagging? thanks.

It's not necessary but it is a good idea to add.

You should be fine. I've towed bigger loads than that and not had much of a problem. We're considering buying a 5000 pound bumper pull toy hauler. But that would after everything is loaded and filled up, about 7000 pounds. I'm wondering if my truck will be able to take that kind of stress for hills and stuff. But, that's a question for it's own thread. I won't hijack this one.

Equalizer hitch is a must IMO, I won't tow without one.

Sagging at 29? Oh that's bad... real bad.
