I've been wondering about adding bags when we add a trailer or 5th wheel to the mix - guess I'll have to wait and see. I may be sitting too high for a 5er.
Couple updates - new toyos, dual steer stabilizer, tinted front glass to match the rest. I've had a new touchscreen DVD HU, amp, backup cam, etc. sitting in the garage since October waiting to go in. Waiting for a non-busy, dry, semi warm weekend that is...

Heres the new set up.
I have been doing a lot of reseach on the Roadmaster Active Suspension and I think I am finally ready to pull that trigger. With a 10% up to 40% over load on the adjustments I can set it up with no sag.
Plus it stops wheel hop, axle wrap from torque when you mash the skinny pedal.
I have always had air bags but I don't like the stiff harsh ride of the rear end. The RAS is claimed to be a very simular to factory when unloaded as well as loaded.
This is stock, once I get the RAS installed I'll get measurements of ride height and drop with the boat.

Never too high for a 5'er - JK. Really depends on trailer and truck. Alot of trailers come pretty high as it is and might not need much modification other than adjustments on the hitch. There is usually a good couple inches of adjustment on them (at least my B&W there is).
Air bags are a must imo if your going to be doing some heavy hauling/towing. I added them when I was pulling our 26ft. bumper pull and it helped alot. With 6" lift on the Duramax I did have to lift the fifth wheel as you know and go with a full travel air bag set-up from Cognito as standard factory size kit wasn't gonna work.2007 Moomba Outback - waiting for summer!

Thanks Irish - It's riding on a Superlift 4" kit. I did have a bit of death wobble here and there on a hard uneven hit but the dual stabilizer masked/fixed it well enough.
If we go the 5er route I'm going to have to ditch the canopy and probably end up with a tonneau. Then air bags would be a must since the ones we've been looking at are triple axle monsters.
If we go the trailer route I'll bet the weight distribution hitch will take most any tail sag out of the equation.Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.
