I put airbags in mine. They work well but the ride is rough all the time. Inflated or deflated.

It's a 2016 F150 5.0L 4x4 3,73 gear ratio. Payload is 1764lbs. RV weighs 8400 and has a pin weight of 1500 lbs. (taken from the spec sheet). I'm using a standard 5th wheel hitch (curt 16K). Never had a problem going uphill or stopping. But I did notice that my headlights were aiming a little high.

If you dont have one already, Get an Anderson 5er hitch, will save you 100lbs payload. Timbrens work great and cant blow out or malfuction like an airbag can and Timbrens wont effect unloaded ride quality. And if u have a slider hitch, ditch it. Just more weight thats not needed.

I enjoy this thread, and there are some really nice pics posted, but if I could make one comment, for the safety of everyone on the roads, please ensure that your vehicle is equipped with proper tow mirrors.
