Arrow Air bags or upgraded springs

This is our new camper and unfortunately due to my 2011 dropping a couple of cylinders on the way home, our new truck as well. Can anyone give me some pointers on how to get this 250 up to the hauling specs of my 350? Notice the azz end sagging. It barely made my 350 move.

Sory to hear about your old truck, what's up with that?
I don't know what to think about y'all pulling those big fifth-wheel RV with a SRW truck.
I love my big RV and my DRW's. Good luck with this new truck, is it a 13 or a 14?

Go to post #381 of the link below and you'll see my Heartland Roadwarrior toyhauler sitting on my SRW truck. 2900lb pin weight and with 50psi in the Firestone air bags the truck doesn't even squat down to the helpers. Air bags combined with the air pinbox makes the coach a pleasure to haul.

^^^Exactly. Firestone bags with 50lbs will make a world of difference.

My 12 squats with my bumper pull with a load sharing hitch. Not much but I notice. Looking at the air bags myself. I have the camper pkg.
