Shasta Revere 30BH

First timer, just wanted to get everyones input on towing this TT (2014 Shasta Revere 30BH). Me and my wife went to a RV show and bought a Revere30BH. The dry weight on it is about 7045lbs, hitch weight is 620. I have an 05 F-150 super-cab 4x4 lariat that i am going to pull it with. I also installed air bags in the back. I was fine with it at first and now i am reading too many posts that say it may be too much. Just wondering if anyone could steer me in the right direction.

Will i be OK pulling this trailer with my truck? It says its rated for about 8800 but with loading it up with supplies i might be pushing it.

Should i get the weight distribution bars and stabilizer bars from the dealer?

I had a 27' bhs revere and I pulled it with a 1500, however if your truck is rated for 8800, I wouldn't be towing the Shasta with it. You'll be pushing it and working that truck a lot. IMHO I think that camper is heavier then the sticker says, I know pull a 32' prime time tracer and my truck tows it 10x's better and it has a little heavier GVW.

As for a WDH yes you will need one, bags won't help to pull more weight they'll help your ride and help to level you out a bit.

Others will post but I wouldn't tow that camper with that truck

I had a 2004 F150 w 5.4L pulling a Revere 26TBQ (6300# dry) and it was on the upper limit of being able to pull it. Started have engine issues. I now pull it with a 2012 F150 w 3.5L Ecoboost....outstanding! is all I can say.
