One of the best improvements for towing on my setup was tire replacement. From D load to E Load Goodyear Endurance. Way heavier built tire and minimal sidewall bulge. Trailer handled much better and tracks better on rough roads. Make sure your wheels are rated for the higher psi. 80lbs. Ram 2500 6.7 Cummins, AirLift bags at 20psi, Andersen WDH with sway control, 2016 Sprinter 35', 10K loaded. Did 3,000 mile Florida run in January and was enjoyable to drive/tow.

Have a friend who had same problem with the new ULTRA LIGHT FORDF150. Truck is way to light for trailer. The tail is waging the dog. Get a heavier truck.

Agreed here. 33+ footer on a 150 is too much. Also, are your air shocks plumbed together or individual. If together, then you can get increased mush back and forth once something starts the movement.

This would be a good time to measure the front fenders to top of tire unhooked and then hooked up. Makes me ask how much weight is lost off the front axle, and hows the steering and braking with a lighten front axle. My 1 ton does not drive any difference with 200-300 lighter front axle. I tried a 1/2 ton chev with a 24 ft/ 8,000 lb boat it was unsafe.
