No airbags/springs, just a weight distributing hitch. I wouldn't dare tow without that. On my camper, it's the tongue weight that I worried about 830lbs, I realize the WDH can't lessen the weight but it can, and does, spread the weight between both vehicles. without it, my truck squats pretty bad, with, it is nice and level.
The truck has the power to pull my camper (she has a dry weight of 6880) while going 65 on I75, I was turning 1800-1900 rpm and getting 10.0 mpg. I watched my gauges and none of them got too hot. only issue was when vehicles passed me, I would get some buffeting, especially if it was a semi. The buffeting wasn't too bad but noticeable. My hitch (BlueOX Sway Pro) has built in sway control.
