You haven’t even put a camper on your truck.I ordered goose neck and 5ver factory prep. Maybe thats it. I dont have the snow plow package. Maybe its because i got the rear slider window, in manual... Ha ha. Could be the 18 inch tires vs the 20.
It is amazing that some people wont/dont even attempt to find the solution to there own problem. Just post a question, and take random advise.
Maybe add to the question i chose a 2500 because of redgistration and licensing in my area.
Maybe just poke the bee's nest?????
In stock form, mine was rated at a legal 2,500lbs bed weight. A ford 150 gasser, with max tow and payload is over 3,000lbs.
As i was mounting the front drivers side frame mount, tie down.
.. I found that the DEF tank mount was in the way of installing the truck camper tie down. I could have mounted it farther back, but it wouldnt pull as forward of an angle as the passenger side, if any. Since i didnt need the tank or mount, i removed it. Seems kinda discriminating against the 2 doors.
.. The lbs that DEF, tank, and mount, add, when full,, really beats up the payload.
.... I should really weigh mine now. As i did stock and full of fuel, def, stuff i keep with me, and me, came in at right on, 7,500lbs. Putting my vin # in the ram sight, came to exactly 2,500 lbs payload.
your advice and most of the rest in this thread is bunk. Unfortunately the OP has an even worse truck than yours for hauling a TC. And since he doesn’t even mention size/weight, he don’t know much about campers either. And no mention of if the airbags are even keeping up. They have about a 3000lb real world limit.
And adding airbags next to airbags is literally the worlds worse idea.
Not to mention the torque arm thingy. Does nothing for the OPs issue.
Best case, if you can find a heavy sway bar and idk if you can add Timbrens, is all you can do.
Or to put it a different way, I’ve had 2 different Arctic Fox campers on a 2007 Ram 2500. (Over 4klbs for those speaking in generalities…). Ended up with a 2016 2500, long story, but sold the TC and wouldn’t even consider putting one on a coil spring 2500. Why? Because I had a 2014 model Ram 2500 (company truck) and tried it.
Now, OP, if your camper is small and lightweight, say 2500lbs max and you’re just not used to driving it, it may be doable but you’ll at a minimum, have to adjust your expectations of how it will handle.
