You're closer to "OK" than I was starting out so you may certainly get there with the bags.

And, again, if there is one thing I am sure of after being on this and other forums for a while, all of us do NOT have the same definition of acceptable towing experience. There are some who would say a GMC Canyon can tow any rv ever made, others who say you need a 1 ton dually for a popup with an 8' box, etc. Exaggerating of course, but only slightly.
Get er to where you are comfortable and have a safe trip!!!

BTW.. one trick I used to use on the WDH so you don't have to "pry" them up.. Hook up the trailer to the ball, then use the jack to jack up the trailer and truck, then put the pry bars on with minimal "pry".. then lower the whole assy. Worked like a champ.

So are you trying to do this system instead of WDH?
If that is the case, the rear may be better, but the front will be VERY light, which is a concern for brakes and steering.

No way ! I realize the importance of the WDH and have always towed with one. Must say , i would love to upgrade to a Blue Ox Sway Pro, but that's not in the budget now ! Just going to try the Air Lift 1000 to try to get rid of the little bit of sqat i still have "with" the WDH.

Just a suggestion depending on how handy you are with a wrench- drop the coils and install the bags. Way WAY easier to run lines etc. The little extra time to drop your coils is minimal to the frustration the can surface running those lines to the fitting

I've installed a few sets and it's always way easier with the coils hanging out. Stumbled across the ease of dropping the diff when I replaced my rear coils with the TTC-1223 since I drive lots of gravel I had a tendancy to destroy the air lines.
