I'm thinking about upgrading to an eagle or going travel trailer.
What year truck?

EDIT: I see you have a 2015 Duramax now that I read your sig

I have the same trailer as spepi and a 2500HD and she rides pretty level. Picture is an empty trailer so should sit even better once loaded. Not a Duramax though... But I would think the suspension is similar if not identical.

I also have the same camper, with my 2500 CTD and its not that nose high. I've already towed mine over 900 miles.
Maybe you should look into suspension settings & hitch options 1st, before changing campers. Also I have the 16" upgrade wheel package.

My 2014 sat a little lower than this one does. The 15.5 has a deeper bed and sits higher.
When I load up today I'll be loading all my gear in the forward part of the trailer. Maybe it will help.

Congrats! I thought that photo looked very Californiaesque! Almost neighbors.
