Nose high?

Not the best photo but I feel the camper is a little nose high, question is do you all think it's to high or will it be OK. The camper is on a little down hill grade in the pic. I installed a new Mor Ryde hitch witch raised it up a little.

What was the measurement from the ground of the stock pin compared to the new pin?? If it is different to the point you seem concerned, can you install it in different holes to get it closer to the stock measurement??

FYI...no expert...just asking questions to understand better..

The Lite rides nose high just a bit, lower the truck, shorter hitch raise the trailer.

I have the same problem with a 2013 Chevy 2500hd and a 28RL Crusader. The distance between the bed rail and trailer only needs to be about 4 inches, the height of your fist. If you have more than that lower your hitch. If not then you are as good as it gets without major changes to the trailer.

Four inches is a bit tight. Most people concur it needs to be about six inches.
