Safe to tow with 1" spacers

I jst got new Buschwaker fender flares. Kinda makes my tires look like they set in to far. So I've been thinking about putting a 2" leveling kit on front and running one inch billet spacers. Here's my main concern. About 5 times a year i pull a 8-9000 5th wheel. The local offload shop said they use them all of the time. Said 1" really wasn't enough to effect much. What do u think?

I'd get the spacers from Fred goetzke and no one else, his spacers are well known and super well made, mike ( mudrunninpig) has a set of 2 inchers front and rear and he tows 16,000 pounds almost daily with no issues.......

Ive been running 2in spacers on the rear of my truck for about a year now with lots of towing.. anywhere from 10k-20k and zero issues. Just need to make sure they are properly torqued and the torque is maintained is all.
