Ford should make air bags a factory options, as just about everyone installs them. I do not know about GM's but the newer RAM do not need them.

Option: Firestone airbags check here ( ) $200
or
Option: Delete Firestone airbags check here ( ) -$200

Looking good. How's your bed rail clearance? It looks a little tight in the photo. But the angle of the photo maybe misleading.

I agree, no reason NOT to offer them as options

Yes, there is at least one reason for truck manufacturers not to offer air bags...the illusion that your new truck can carry and pull more than the ratings...by the ability to level the TV. If you add the air bags it’s not a manufacturer issue.

Redwood 3991RD 17,900 GVWR and dry pin weight of 2620(low for it's size and weight, which is helpful with a SRW). It will we interesting to see you fully loaded scale weights. Do you plan on a W/D and/or gen set?

Hopefully you went for the F350 SRW with 12,400 GVWR. I could not find the RGAWR, however tires limit that to a max of 7500, on edit: found it RGAWR 7230.

Being an advocate of these newer SRW 350/3500 for towing larger trailers, I interest in how this works out for you.

We full timed for almost two years load heavy(16K trailer) and made weights, except for being 40 lbs over TV GVWR, however was licensed for more in my home state. I do know that a washer and dryer would have put TV rear axle over, and a gen set, way over.
