On my previous truck (GMC), I tried the Rancho 9000 but ended up with Bilsteins. They had a much better ride with and without the camper loaded.

Current truck (F250) has Kings. Good with the camper but very bouncy without it.

i've been very happy with the 9000XL's i put on two summers ago - much better than the factory units but probably not as good as the Bilstein's that are available.

I like the adjustable rancho shocks for our truck/camper. We have in-cab control for adjusting them. Our previous truck I had to crawl under to adjust. Use 10 setting on rear and 6 on fronts when the camper is installed.

On my old 2007 f250 with lance 845 camper, the Ranchos didn't make any difference at all over Ford stock shocks. I wouldn't buy them again. Also wasted money on a huge rear sway bar. Nor airbags for a truck camper... Too much like riding on a top heavy beach ball. I like hard steel springs much better for campers.

In retrospect, I think the D rated 60psi tires of the F250 were a good part of the instability problems however. 80psi E tires of the 350 series are more stable.
