We tow a 351RSTS that's comparable in size and weight but we do it with a 2015 dually. The truck pulls really well and handles nicely with the trailer in tow. I considered a SRW when we bought this one but decided the margin in safety and extra cargo capacity were worth going to a DRW.

If it were me, I'd add bags. It helps with sway and squat tremendously. I would think the truck would still squat a lot, regardless of suspension. The auxiliary springs help but are not enough. (Not all Super Duty's have aux springs btw...it's an option). A little extra assurance can't hurt. They're easy to install and work great. The hardest part is getting the old bumpers off. That nut always seems to be a bear to wrench off.

I have a 2015 F-350 4x4 LB Crew cab. I added the Firestone air ride system because my truck went to the overloads with the Pinnacle on it. Seems kind of wrong that the truck is rated for the weight, but sagged so much. With 60#'s of air pressure in the bags it handles like a dream and runs level going down the road.

We pull the 5th with our '13 F350 SRW. I've done nothing to the suspension and the rear squats 1-2". I keep debating about airbags, I'd like to get an on-board air system mostly because I like toys. The 6.7 is an OX and it loves to pull. The truck overall seems to do a great job pulling the load down the road. We've logged around 9100 miles with this combination almost 2 years.
As a point on the curve my weight spreadsheet is below.
