Ok, got that over with...

My 9.6 2500 weighs right at 4200lbs loaded with water, food and clothes.
My f250 is a supercab gasser and weighs 5,800 lbs. SRW. Total weight of truck and camper is 10,060.
My rear axle weight loaded is about 66xxlbs.
I have 19.5 tires and Air Lift air bags in the rear. I run about 40psi, just enough to level the truck.
Camper bought new and has been on 2 f250's. Camper has about 200,000 miles on it.
I have no other suspension changes.
Tire capacity is 4950lbs each so I have lots of reserve weight capacity on the rear of my truck.



I would check your tire capacity.. and figure that camper will weigh about 4K loaded. Decide later if you need air bags and anti sway etc.

I just reviewed 6 years of different model years of BF brochures 2000 -2008 there are no 2500 series 9.6 listed as for short bed use ,

they only list 9.4 and once an 8-11 b was listed as for short box use

So you reviewed brochures for 12-20 year old models and came to this conclusion?

And what story? OP doesn't have a story, just asking about that camper model. No mention of the model year, but presuming if he's asking about it then it's a model year that they did or do make that model.
You guys are too funny....bigfoot detectives!
Big foot big foot, whatchya gonna do, whatchya gonna do when they come for you....lol
