I'm thinking about buying a 16' camper. New to the hobby, but not to towing trailers.
I have a 14'x6' enclosed cargo trailer (single axle), and it causes the truck to squat about the same as the new camper (I asked the sales guy if I could hook up to it to make sure it didn't squat too much).
Dry weight of the trailer is 2360 lb. My truck is good for 5000 lb. Trailer has brakes, truck has brake controller.
I already use friction-type sway control with my cargo trailer for more control, and two separate guys at the RV delaership said I was good to go without a WD hitch. Just sway control alone was OK.
The back of the truck squats about 1.5" from stock height with the dry trailer connected. With 230 lb additional tongue weight (a person) on the hitch, I figured another inch sag. I have the 4-leaf TSB leaf back.
I do have Firestone Ride-Rite airbags ready to put in the truck, but was wondering whether weight distribution would be required.
