Agree with WarEagle! I forgot to mention my Silverado has a Z85 package which is beefier springs than normal 4x4. When I'm loaded with ALL gear in truck, including a huge cooler I have to load and unload in the truck (I get thirsty) I leave it in there the whole trip, and the topper and the EggCamper, I'm still level. Agree it depends on the tv.

Technical correction - our Ford is an F-250 (3/4 ton) with a heavy-duty suspension. It doesn't sag at all (well, maybe 1/2") on the rare occasion we hitch our EggCamper to it. Our main tv for the EggCamper is our Highlander, and it may sag 2" or so (with the back of the Highlander filled with camping gear, too), but that has no effect on how the Highlander handles.

An airbag setup like this would help.

Crystal, I just stood on top of the hitch ball on our Highlander while my wife measured, and my 212 pounds of body weight dropped the hitch exactly 1". I'd be curious, if you could get someone weighing close to the same amount to stand on the hitch ball of your Suburban, to know how far it drops under the same weight. Just curious...

I am getting around to visiting my old thread. I still haven't sold my sticky trailer (no shocker to all of you I will definitely continue to research and I bet if I get both of my kids to step on bumper they'd fit that hitch weight you described, worth a try!! Thanks everyone
