2001 f350 4x4 dually what air bags

I am new to the site and just bought a f350 4x4 dually 2001 also bought a 42 ft toy hauler. Not to savy on these truck but always wanted to get one. I need to put bags on it but cant seem to find the right ones for the dually with a fifth wheel hitch in it. Does anyone know about this or have a truck like this with bags. What bags do I need to buy.
Thanks for any help

You sure you need bags? Not doubting you, just asking why you think so.
What fifth wheel hitch do you have? Just standard Reese rails or something different?

I have Firestone RideRite bags on my truck. Do I NEED them? Probably not, but they sure make a difference. Much smoother and feels like I'm more in control.

Took me about 2 hours to install.

You truck needs kit # 2550 RideRite website

Well dont have a hitch yet either lol Just bought a new Heartland 42ft toyhauler loaded is 18k pin weight is around 3k, and just bought this truck but i am buying a 20k reese hitch to put in the truck. I have been told by lots of people with this big trailer and all that weight its more stable and safer to have the bags

And thanks for the reply
