Hello and a Question about tie downs

Hello Folks
I visited this forum back in 04 a bit but got away from camping and now made the move from 5th wheels to truck campers. I just bought a 2000 Citation to put in my 96 2500 8600# w/ a 6.5 diesel.
I am researching what type of tie down system to use, and recommendations concerning air bags.
I look forward to your guidance and insight.

For our camper, we use the Torklift and Fastgun combination. Sorry, no recommendations on air bags as we've found we don't need them with our dually.

Depending on the size and slides of your Citation, it might put your 3/4 ton truck down quite a bit. I have Firestones on my truck F350, but they didn't come into play unless the overload spring was completely removed.

Air bags are used to level the floor of the camper when the truck is on level ground. Some campers have a side to side lean because of heavy things on one side.

Put the camper on, and see how it sits. Put a good level on the road, adjust your tire pressure properly, then see how the camper sits. Go from there.
