This is fully loaded.
That makes sense.

My hitch is a curt q20. Set at the highest level. To go higher would need to add air bags? Any other recommendations.

Your truck is riding nice and level. Air bags would raise the rear but depending on how much air is needed to level RV it could cause a harsh ride. Another thought is look at the B&W hitch height that fits your puck system it may be able to adjust higher than the Curt. If so then you could sell your Curt on CL and get the B&W and then not possibly compromise ride quality.

Hey I just bought the Curt. The B & W would be a little over 1" taller. If I was to replace the Curt, I would look at an air hitch.
