I love the GooseBox. I had one issue when it was new, it would need air every time we stopped. I called Reese and they weren't sure but I did notice it wasn't easy to put air into so I replaced the valve core and that was all it needed.
I put 60PSI in when I air it up and it settles in at somewhere just above 50. It has a popoff valve so I don't worry about it.
I put airbags on the F350 and air them to 12PSI and the ride is great.
We weighed the truck and trailer last christmas and had about 2 weeks worth of stuff in it so I would say that was a good weight for us. The whole trailer weighed 15,000lbs, the hitch was about 3K and the axles were about 12K.
A big PS check the torque on all the bolts,
everyone of mine were way low my guess is they used an impact.
