I agree

I towed a 7000 lbs TT on flat ground in Florida. Thought it felt realy light under 40mph the unit was harder to pull then my 15k lbs 5th wheel at higher speed. I could notice the load was higher on my scangauge. And that's why I have never owned TTs from the start. 5ths do not create as much drag and have always been solid performers.
No air bags for me unless I would have the 4 link suspension and much improved shock setup. For less then $200 I improved the ride loaded while protecting the main spring plies with additional plies. And after 140k miles shocks and suspension is still original. Fords will not hold the load with stock springs on the F250 and F350 SRW.
