I know this has been talked about to death, but here I go. We have a 2010 Zinger 32QB and are towing it with a 2003 Dodge 1500 quad cab 4wd w/a 5.7 and 3:92 gears. We also have about 4" of squat but the trailer is level. We had it weighed and it was as follows: approx 3220 on the steer axle, approx 4220 on drive axle and 6230 on the trailer axle. The weight is loaded for weekend camping. My question is this do we need to upgrade our TV or just add springs or air bags.

We also spotted 3 other Zingers at Jellystone- Caladonia,Wisc on the weekend of 10/09 - 10/11.


Our kids already want spring .
Thanks for everyones help.

Air bags - I have used them on all of my trucks. I tow a fifth wheel and have about 2 inches of sag whenI hitch up - put about 45 lbs. in the air bags and I gain back about 1 1/2 inches. With the air bags you may not have to put as much "tension" on the euqalizing hitch.

What are your unhitched axle weights on the TV? And did you measure to see if you have the WDH set up correctly?
