Best Option For Improving Control and Reducing Suspension Sag When Towing a Travel Trailer


Dear Team, I would like to understand what option to choose to improve control when towing a travel trailer with my 2022 RAM 2500. What option do you consider is the best? TDR2500D TDRTT3500E SSR-312-54 ... Any other ... Thank you very much!

The best route would be to use one of the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems from the list below. You will need to ensure you choose the correct system for your trailer weight. This will not only redistribute the tongue weight across your 2022 Ram 2500 to reduce sag but it will also help to reduce trailer sway. Sway is very common on travel trailers due to their large profile and strong winds on the highway.

200-600LBS Tongue Weight and Trailer Up to 6,000LBS # EQ37060ET
600-1,00LBS Tongue Weight and Trailer Up to 10,000LBS # EQ37100ET
800-1,200LBS Tongue Weight and Trailer Up to 12,000LBS # EQ37120ET
1,000-1,400LBS Tongue Weight and Trailer Up to 14,000LBS # EQ37140ET
1,200-1,600LBS Tongue Weight and Trailer Up to 16,000LBS # EQ64FR

You will need a 1-7/8" 12pt Thin Walled Socket # ALL643216 to install the hitch ball included with each of these kits.

If you only are interested in a the rear suspension enhancement I recommend the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs # SSR-312-54. These will allow for a smoother ride both when loaded and unloaded than the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TDR2500D. The other Timbren # TDRTT3500E is only for severe duty applications such as a adding a service bed or slide in camper which will always weigh on the suspension.
