Looks fine. Usually though the bars should be close to parallel with the frame in best case scenario. Use the adjustment washers to tilt the head back and you'll have to adjust which chain link you're on. Same effect, less likely to tag the frame on certain terrain.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

the only way to KNOW is to hit some scales and weigh the axles with/without trailer wdh .....YES the bars should be parallel to the trailer frame, and YES you want the trailer as level as possible as to keep axle weights equal... having the bars set to eliminate the sag may be to much or just right.....all depends on how you lifted the truck...

mine was lifted with blocks in the rear so original spring rate was exactly as stock....even then i bagged it because the HID's were blinding everyone for 4 miles with the slight stock sag (even with hitch adjusted perfect)..ive had issues with lifted spring packs before....especially progressive packs for lifted applications.....the soft top portion lends to a lot of sag when towing....

also, i HATE towing with the nittos on mine....even at 65psi the sidewall flex/sway is annoying and there is a 2-3 mpg difference between the nittos and my stock michellin 20"s at 75psi while towing .

other than that, it looks like you have a pretty decent starting point.....its always a fine tuning process with wdh...and how you load can make a try and set bars at LOADED tongue weight....

X2 on the comments about loading. I have a pretty much stock Nissan Titan, tows our trailer very well. It took me a trip or two and some towing around to get the setup right on my WDH. One huge difference was the propane tanks being full vs empty. Obviously it adds weight but, those coupled with how the front compartment is loaded or things stored on the bed in the front of ours makes a good difference.

Good luck!
