33 RLDS that's exactly what I need them for. With the TT hooked up I'm level but going down the road I bounce. That's fine around here as we don't go far to camp but the planned 6,000 mile round trip in September makes me nervous.

You would think air bags would make for more bounce but its just the opposite. It makes the TT and TV feel like one long unit. locked together.

Is the on board air compressor worth the extra $300.00??

Not in my opinion. You just don't adjust them that often. With my two valves set in the rear bumper I barely have to bend over to add or release air. Much easier than adjusting tires.

I wouldn't. Unless you plan on using the bags on a normal basis. I use a old electric compressor I've had for years. I do plan on buying a small compressor I can keep under the rear seat of the truck. The way I see it, electric will always be available. Either at the CG or at home.

I have the Schrader valves coming out where the bottom tag holes are. Kinda inconspicuous and serves my purpose.

I have the on a F250SD with 100,000+ towing, a couple different 5r's, and it levels ride and stops bounce. I'm pulling a 10K TT now and carry 50psi in the bags, I have not had to adjust this year. I have the double valves just above the bumper. I check PSI on the bags, TV tires, and TT tires before each tow.

I have a White Hawk 23MRB and I'm thinking about getting the Air Lift Ride Control kit which levels as much as 2000 lbs. Since our trailer is only 5300 lbs loaded and tongue weight is less than 1000 lbs, will the 2000 lb Air Lift Ride Control kit be enough?

We never plan on towing a larger trailer. If we do, we'll get an F-250.
