I just ordered my Airlift 1000 bags yesterday. I have pulled my Salem 26TBUD with a Husky Centerline TS 3 times, and am really happy with the power of the truck and it tows nice and straight. Hopefully the bags will take some of the bounce out.

The bags were fairly easy to install. I had the same problem of bouncing. Haven't pulled the trailer with the bags yet but we got a short trip planned next weekend. I'll post the results after the trip.

It does help take the bounce and porpoising out when you hit the bridges and stuff.. You'll love them. The ram has a pretty soft ride due to the rear coil springs. These are great for helping them.

Did you have to readjust your WDH?


Happy Camping!

Only the one time,,, after I got it home from dealer. Before hooking up I put 30-34 (roughly) psi in airbags. When not towing keep about 5-7 psi..

What kind of mileage you guys get? What type of terrain you tow on?
Thanks
Mike

What is the dry weight of your Windjammer?

Mike on a flat highway terrain with cruise control set to 60 MPH I was able to get 11.2 MPG towing my Wildwood. I estimate that I was towing about 6300 lbs when doing this.

On another trip thru hilly areas in Lancaster PA, I dropped down to about 9.9-10.3 MPG with similar tow weight. We hit one uphill climb where my Hemi wasn't happy but the rest were survivable. I def prefer flat ground!

I get 10-12 mpg. I'm in AL so it's not mountainous by any means but hilly in spots.. (I grew up in the Rockies so I know mountains, where people around here think there are mountains) anyway, not great gas mileage but not terrible towing 8000 + lbs with 1/2 ton Hemi..
