Got it and that is certainly something to consider. I have airbags installed however so spring sag shouldn't be an issue.

They are especially handy when you don't know exactly what to expect or your load may be changing over the course of a trip. Like some others on the thread, I do my best to make sure my trailer is always level, which is more important with tandems anyway.

Awesome. Have fun on the Salmon.

You need to measure the hitch height on your truck while on level ground and get the seller to measure the bottom of coupler height when the trailer is lever, then you know how much rise or drop you need. Piece of cake.

Nice. I love my air bags. They make you wonder, "how did I ever survive without these?!"
