How would I check the load rating of the rims/wheels on my truck?
They're stock chevy wheels, so I imagine they would match at least the rating of the stock tires but would like to verify things...

They are rated at least the axle rating. Most of the time it is stamped on the inside of the wheel.

Thanks again for all of the answers.

So next question....air bags.

I notice IGO1320 shows he is using airbags on his truck. Others as well.

I had intended to go without the airbags to see how the truck carries the load. If the rear dips too much with the trailer pin weight, I'll go have some airbags installed.

From the answers I've gotten on the thread, it looks like several of you could probably just solve this for me up front. Will I need some Airbags?

I would just get the air bags, you will need them and it will make your ride a little bit better when towing. It will squat your truck pretty good.

It's not just "squat". Rough roads will make you bottom the suspension, that's greatly diminished with air bags.

So wanted to thank everyone for all of the help.

I went ahead last week and bought an RV. I ended up changing from the Torque to a Keystone Carbon and the kids love it.

Can't thank everybody enough for the info and guidance.

Best Regards to all!

You really need some kind of helper springs or airbags. I use the Roadmaster Active suspension springs. They help hold up the load some, but really help with the jerking and axel wrap.
I tried airbags and took them off and put these on. Much better. Bags hold up the weight better but do nothing for the jerking and axel wrap.

Thanks for the info on the airbags too. I talked to a local suspension shop and am going to get airbags with some kind of a wireless remote controller. They're Firestone bags.

Anyone have experience with the wireless compressor and bags? Good way to go?

Those that have them swear by them.
