When I pick up the trailer & hitch up, I will be able to tell.

I have 6"s between my cover rail and the bottom of the RV. When I exit out family cottage I go up an incline to the narrow road. When I do this my TV will twist when to one side and the RV will drop close to the cover rail rocking from front to back coming close to touching. I have bent down the front of my box once. I found that I need to keep the TV and the RV as straight as possible as I cross over the edge of the road. My next choice is to remove the rails because the cover is not needed when I'm hooked up.

I want to apologize to all that responded to my call for help. I lost connection to my TV, internet, and Wifi. ALL came back 4:00am this morning.

One option that has not come up is how I solved the same issue on my rig. I raised my fifth wheel by installing the Correct Track System. This raised the camper 2 inches, solved clearance issues and gave me the ability to align my axles if needed in the future.

It is a kit that installs on your suspension that makes axle alignment possible. The bolt on kit does raise the camper 2 inches that in my case helped level the whole rig when hitched. I installed the kit just for the lift but it will allow future axle alignments if needed. Purchased on amazon. Search on You Tube for pictures.
