Determine the gross weight of the camper to include the base weight plus all options (e.g. jacks, batteries @62# each, air cond @ 92#, LPG, water incl. volume in hot water heater, solar, etc), then determine the payload capacity (incl. options) of the truck configuration – GVWR minus vehicle weight = payload…This should give you a more informed idea…

As a contingency, I’ve had good luck with Timbrens, which can be installed over the rear axle in just a few minutes (with adjustable shims for proper clearance), have a full money back guarantee, and a lifetime warranty…They are basically cylindrical, hollow rubber blocks that only engage (contacting truck frame) when the camper is aboard – they never need service…Loaded, the ride will stiffin a bit in the rear (but not uncomfortably so), snd sway will be reduced considerably…If it turns out that you don’t need them, just send them back…JMO
