Air bags alone has some additional disadvantages if there is failure on a trip. And regardless of failure they are often going to limit your suspension travel (which is OK on pavement). I vote for spring upgrade. Also you may wish to upgrade brakes if you have an older truck. Some of those tacos had drum brakes!

Shout out to Boise Spring Works. They put on a nice leaf pack on my Colorado and it rides real nice. No air bags needed as I did on my Tacoma.

After using Firestone airbags for the past 16 years without issue, and now somewhat recently having my local 4x4 shop add a couple of springs to reduce my reliance on airbags, I think I am finally ready to cut the airbag cord and have a proper spring pack built as I almost never remove my camper. If your camper will be in full time, a custom spring pack would be the way to go IMO.
