The best solution for you will depend on how you usually use your truck. If the sag you experience is caused by the slide in camper only, or may also when you to a gooseneck or 5th wheel camper, then a Timbren Suspension Enhancement System like # TFR1504E would be a great choice. The Timbren system won't impact your suspension performance until the rear suspension compresses by around an inch or so. This means no air lines to mess with, no ruptured bags, no guesswork. The springs get progressively firmer as more weight is added to them. The springs also help prevent body roll, which is something that'll come in handy with that slide in camper.

However in addition to the slide in camper, you also tow different bumper pull trailers and haul variously weighted loads in your truck bed, the adjustability of a air bag system would provide the flexibility you'll need to contend with the various weights applied to your truck's rear suspension. If you live in the rust belt or near a marine environment, you'll be best off using the # AL89385 from Air Lift. In addition to the internal jounce bumpers, this system provides stainless roll plates and hardware for excellent corrosion resistance. If you're somewhere where you won't encounter road salt or a marine environment, # AL88385 would work well for you. An optional compressor system # AL25655 is also available, which would allow you to adjust the air pressure in the bags with the flick of a switch from the comfort of the truck cab.
