I just got my weight bars set up this weekend.
With my chains on the third link (Im using a Hensley) the rear dropped right around 2 inches and the front came up .5. The back end was a little bouncy so I pulled the chains up 1 link, now on the 4th link. The rear still settled in around 2" and the front only came up 3/8 of an inch.
It is my opinion that these Ram trucks handle the relative little bit of weight of a travel trailer very well. Thats assuming a typical travel trailer, realizing they can all vary in weight drastically. We are pulling a Solaire 317BHSK which has a relatively light 685# dry tongue weight. I have added 4 6 volt batteries to the tongue though so I'm carrying that weight as well.
With a 3000# + payload capacity, 1000# or so on the tongue isn't really a big deal. IMO.
