New truck. Will I need to lift the trailer?

I just bought a 2015 Ford F-250 4X4. I haven't measured the bed rail height, but it looks higher than my present tow vehicle. My trailer is a 2015 Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite 8280WS. If I decided to use my new truck as a tow vehicle and the trailer/bed rail gap was too narrow, what are my options?

The rail height of the newer trucks has been a problem for many, many people. Most seem to just run their fivers nose-high, but some will put a lift or subframe on the fiver or, if the fiver axles are currently above the leaf springs, they "flip" them so they are below the leaf springs, raising the fiver several inches.
