I discussed all that with the Chevy dealer and they said no problem. Also I have two friends pulling Toy Haulers with pins 600+ lbs higher and a weight close to a 1,000 more and they said it handles and tows fine. They have a 2013 that were rated lower than the 2015.

So I guess time will tell.

One thing I have learned is a salesperson trying to sell something will usually tell you what you want to hear!

Not in this case, since they knew I was willing to buy a 3500 if I had to. I was buying either way. Same dealer and sales manager I've bought from for the last 22 years.

I have a 2013 2500 GMC 4x4 that I have been contemplating adding air bags or helper springs. I tow a 2014 361REQS. I am leaning towards the SuperSprings. The spring has no effect on the ride until you add a heavy load. They have the same weight ratings as air bags but you don't have to fool with adding or releasing air. This might be an option if you get more sag than you like,

I ran air bags with manual inflation the first year I had this old rig then last year I added the compressor. It's sure nice to have a switch and a gauge inside now.

You can 'bag' it all you want but I never even considered a 250 SRW for pulling our rig safely.

Don't be fooled by those saying it's fine with a 250 because that's what they have. If they could do it over they would have a 1 ton DRW.

I didn't say anything I have or do is fine for anyone else. Do what you want. I have a friend from Carson City that pulls his fiver with F-550, says it works great. No foolin'

Same here run air bags with wireless compressor installed myself it was really a easy install . Put them on a DRW F-350 long box . I ran the intake for the compressor in behind the rear seat that way it doesn't pull moisture into the valve and bags
