Recommended Airbag Suspension for 5th Wheel on 2015 F150 XLT Supercab with 6.5 Foot Bed


I read your advise on the 2105 F 150 w/ short bed and want to make sure advice is the same for a 4x4 F150 XLT supercab w/standard bed 6.5 ft. I already installed an in bed 5th wheel hitch from E Trailer and am towing a Cougar 26RDS 5th wheel trailer, that does have a slightly heavy toungue weight and causes sag in rear end. Secondly, is it worthwhile to have a onboard compressor either with or without remote.

For your 2015 Ford F-150 XLT Supercab, the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # AL57284 or the Airlift LoadLifter 5000 with Internal Jounce Bumpers # AL88385 for increased safety are a great option that will work with your truck and trailer combination. Both of these options will adjust from 5 psi to 100 psi to remove sag and level your truck.

All air spring kits come with the manual inflation valves to allow you to use an air compressor to level your springs. The benefit of Air Springs is the ability to adjust each air spring and get the feel you desire. When you use an onboard compressor, that gives you the ability to adjust the psi in your springs at any time and allows you the ability to view the air pressure in the bags at any time as well. Most people don't have access to a compressor all the time and even so they don't have it with them at all times. The onboard compressor is a great convenience for you if you will be towing regularly or if you just want to have the smoothest ride whether towing or not.

For a system that allows for independent adjustment of each spring, I recommend the Air Lift Load Controller Compressor System for Air Helper Springs- Heavy Duty - Dual Path # AL25856. If you want the wireless option, I recommend the Air Lift WirelessAIR Compressor System for Air Helper Springs - Wireless Remote Control # AL72000. The wireless option allows you have the control without running wires into your cab. The remote is about the same size as a garage door opener and conveniently clips to your visor.
