Has anyone used a Visa Haul or similare hitch mounted system on a Eco Diesel with the air suspension system!
I want to carry my Adventure bike to the southern USA and want to know if these units are safe and can the truck handle the weight.

Personally I never used a Visa Haul hitch. But it might be a mute point. I think the Tow/Haul button that's selectable disables the air suspension while your hauling.

No, the tow haul disables Aero mode and the suspension only levels as needed. It does not disable the air.

The 1500 air can handle about 1000# of direct tongue weight without complaining, depending how close or far from the hitch that may very. I Used to run up to 3,000# in the bed.

You state an adventure bike, so I think a enduro, crossover type? Maybe 400#? Wouldn't sweat it
