I think so. I didn't really notice the Bayside behind the F150 (5.4 V8) but after the SOA I really don't know it's back there till I look in the rear view mirror. I did need to get step because it did raise the camper enough to make it more difficult to step up. And as others, I made some 4" high wooden blocks (2x8 squares to fit Lynx blocks) to a) add a spacer for the tongue jack and b) give some help for the stabilizers when the ground is a bit more unlevel (or it will take all my Lynx blocks to 'pad' one side). My axle had been flattened out over time so I needed to replace the entire axle, I let a professional shop handle the work. Good luck!
