Previously, we owned a very light 1997 Starcraft popup camper. When it was fully loaded, the van needed some help to stay level so I installed some airlift airbags to help lift the back end of the van. It worked! But we traded our old popup for a new Rockwood 2280BHESP popup camper. We love it! But, with the new popup came more weight. A lot more. Another 1000+ lbs!!! Needless to say the airlift bags were not the right tool for the job. We needed a weight distribution hitch to level out the van and raise the nose of the trailer and restore handling. I finally bought one.... and this is the install and test drive.
