That would be a YES

I am presuming that you mean an airbag at the pin box, right? I have a Trailair and have towed with it inflated and deflated (they do go flat after a while). With the (tiny tyre-like) airbag inflated to its correct height (it is inflated and measured according to a mark on the device, not according to air pressure) The ride in the truck is measurably improved. When I run with it flat, I feel every bump from the 5'er, with it inflated, these are smoothed out. It also reduces the amount of shock and bump on the trailer contents. Worth every penny.

Airbags on the axles of the trailer, never seen a good word (from experts).

Air bags on the rear axle of the truck.

Run airbags on the truck axles. They work. 9 years wouldn't be without them. Like anything if you are over loaded and not using them for the purpose they are designed, they will not be good for them or your vehicle. They smooth out the ride and allow for leveling of your rig. If you're towing an 11000 pound trailer with a 1/2 ton truck and expect the airbags to make up the difference your -----. ----- That means you're making a mistake.
