Don't replace your leafs. Buy air suspension. Search them up on auto anything.com. Once those are in you will never have to worry about replacing leafs again. Or springs for that matter. With them you can also soften or stiffen your ride quality. These are very handy when towing a trailer

I had only planned on replacing the shocks since they are the originals, but that will probably depend on the ride with the trailer and how bad it sags even with the WDH, I have thought about adding the air system, I will look further into that it may end up being the way to go. Thanks!

No buyers remorse here. I would buy the same trailer again in a heartbeat!

It was a 300$ fix for my 07 silverado. Unlike springs leafs or shocks they don't really stretch or give over time. They do weather if you don't take care of them but will still outlast all the rest of the suspension

I'm happy to hear that too. (the buyers remorse comment) was kinda worried that maybe I would be getting myself into trouble with the fold out canvas parts but I haven't heard much about their issues. However I have heard that eventually those ends start to sag. I'm going to create lightweight braces for when they are opened up.

i've been on 4 hybrid forums for the past 6 years and i have never heard of the ends "sagging".
do you mean the cables or the canvas or the bunk door?
i've heard the bunk doors "bowing" but not sagging.
it's like saying that you've heard about trucks' tailgates sagging.

where did you hear this?

you mean the bed platform or what we call, bunk doors?

this has only been reported on any of the hybrid forums i'm on, a handful of times.
probably less than 5x, that i can remember.
definitely not an across the board problem.

Well we have our walk through scheduled for 3:30 tomorrow afternoon, hope all goes well. Don't know yet if we will be able to take it home tomorrow or Friday as my TV is in the shop (another story about taking it in for one thing and they break something else) and suppose to be ready sometime tomorrow but may be too late to get it and pick up the camper so may have to go back and get it on Friday, luckily the dealer is only 10 mins up the road.
