    Airbags with onboard Air (best control options?) and a Hitch ? too

    Hit pause button again. Going to wait and see 2022 models and go from there. Now leaning towards lil smaller 38’ range. Only couple hundred pounds difference in pin weight, but every lil bit helps.

    Thanks I was completely unaware of pin boxes. Now to research that as well--may be more important than the hitch for comfort.

    Steve what 5ver hitch you like? Maybe I should forego air bags and look at hood air ride hitch?

    Airbags with onboard Air (best control options?) and a Hitch ? too

    Back on topic-- No leveling kit on front. Empty comfort most important. That will be majority of miles. Not interested in the Timbrins; especially with above info. With hitch gone and the Montana Model 372 RD not being 100% dream layout. I thinks it's likely I'll tap brakes and pause...

    Promised pic and off topic; hijacking my own thread...LOL All light and radio wiring under the hood. Did a great job with everything going to separate switches so I can control lights (spots and flashy) to keep from blinding drivers. Upfitter 1 2x 7" RIGID Drive lights (mounted in front Grill )...

    Thanks. Need to digest and continue thinking. This has been in works for years. Really like ALL replies; playbook been refined and will continue to be. If someone gives me a nice new dually in lower 48–problem solved. I owe some pics of all lights and professional wiring I had done in prep...

    Airbags with onboard Air (best control options?) and a Hitch ? too

    5ver is still TBD but I am looking at 3 models with hitch weights of 2481lbs, 2653lbs, and 2530lbs. Truck yellow sticker say 3173lbs. I am kind of on fast forward/pause with 2530 (Montana Model 372 RD) as I can get a really good deal on one here know a couple just bought, never used and...

    I want airbags because I have SRW and will be near limits so want to manage sag. Some say it also helps bounce.

    Not been on here in a quite a while and getting ready to prep for 5th wheel purchase I've discussed, thought of, and planned for years. I think airbags is in my interest as I am looking at Montana's in 40' range and I want onboard air. Looking for experience thought on which system I should...

    Where Were You at 911/2001? (19 Years Today) Remembering the Ones Who Perished.

    . I awoke to it as I was/am in Alaska. At the time I was active duty Soldier and was to fly to NY the following day for UN security detail. Needless to say; that trip was cancelled.

    Towing 5th wheel to Alaska

    If you plan accordingly, you will have no issues.  However there are a lot of GREAT campgrounds around that you may want to stay in that have no hook-ups.  One of those small 200W gennys could easily be used in these.  It doesn't need to run 24/7.  As long as you are not opening and closing the...
