There is also a product called Timbrens. Does some what the same as an airbag, but is an aircell. I think they are cheaper than airbags, and those that have them seem to like them.

hard to believe that a popup could make a 1/2 ton truck's rear squat.
that's got to be a really soft suspension.
i put my Roo 23SS's tongue on the Avalanche's receiver, without the WDH and i barely got any squat. and its tongue weight is over 500lbs.

Is your picture upside down? Not sure since my eyes are tired and my contacts are dry so it's hard to focus.

Did you end up exchanging the pic? All the pics in the tread looks OK now.

I had trouble with this site flipping one of my pics too but then I think I took the pic with the phone camera turned sideway originally.

I have a Rockwood High Wall and tow it with my wife's Kia Sedona mini Van. We use a weight distributing hitch and sway control bar and it all tows level and fine. With the hitch we only have inches from the ground to start with anyway. It is all well within specs for the vehicle, just not alot to spare. Good towing! Scott

Air bags are great for other reasons as well as raising the vehicle an inch or two with a load. If you do any washboard roads, they help to smooth out the rear end and keep it from trying to dog track.
My silverado will drop exactly 1 inch when I attach my trailer. But the 228BH has a lot of trailer weight due to the bike rack, dual batteries and dual propane tanks.

HI ben-jamin

Just wondering if you resolved your "squat" issue? What worked?
