Can Truck Air Bag System Be Utilized to Distribute Weight of 5th Wheel Camper?


Pour the 5th wheel camper can I distribute weight with my airbags on my pick up


Expert Reply:

For a 5th wheel camper the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs - Double Convoluted - Rear Axle # F2355 (fitting a 2004 - 2015 Nissan Titan) will not help distribute as much as it will help with load leveling. Air spring systems are adjustable side to side if you set them up for that function and will help with shock absorption and leveling the rear sag of your truck. They are great for adjustability to give you the best possible ride with your trailer.

You may want to consider using a dual path compressor like the Firestone Air Command II - Analog Gauge w/ Standard-Duty Compressor - Dual Function # F2178 to get the side to side load leveling at any time.

They are not intended to be a weight distributing system and they do not increase the payload capacity.
