Ha ha, that's exactly what I'm having them do. Like you, I figured that might be the easiest way to take the slope out of the equation. Like I mentioned before they are elderly and so I'm really having difficulty getting true trusting measurements from them.
For instance I had them measure the receiver hole on the back of their truck and they told me it was 1", then they told me the adjustable shank that slides into that is 2"....? Obviously something is wrong. For normal capable people like us it would take 5 minutes to gather what was needed. I'm going on 1.5 weeks now trying to get the most basic info. and info that doesn't contradict.
Can you confirm if your trailer height sits in that that range of 20" - 24"?
