Question springs

hi i have a 2001 f250 7.3 crew cab and just bought a 30ft 5th wheel and hooked up to it to pull it home and noticed that the rear end of my truck was dipping a lot and when i took a close look at the leaf springs i noticed they were bending the the other way

i was just wondering is this normal and if not what can i do about it

I guess this would happen if you have enough weight on them. You might need some helper air bags in the rear
