bucking when not on a smooth road?

I have a Ram quad tradesman 1500 ecodiesel(P 17 inch tires) no air suspension with an Equalizer (E4) with 1,000 lbs way bars. The camper is a 2503S minilite. approximately 5300 lbs loaded with at 750 lbs tongue weight. The payload for the truck is 1580 lbs and towing capacity is 7950 lbs. I am not near the maximums on any of those numbers. I do have about 100 lbs in the bed of the truck also. The trailer and TV have no sagging when hitched and ready to go and are level. The problem is when on the highway and going 58 mph the truck feels like it is bucking a when the road is not exactly smooth.. There is no sway at all even when tractor trailers whiz by me doing 75. Does the hitch need a little adjustment or would airlift 1000 airbags solve this. Any help or ideas greatly appreciated. Also if the airbags are the answer would I have to adjust the hitch again for it.

You could be getting a bit of squish from the passenger tires.
Maybe look for some LT's ?

Also, with the rear coils, bags would help.
