should 5vr be level when towing?
It's camping season and the TT are out in force. I've seen the odd idiot now and then, but this year...seems to be more and more of then.
AFAIK a trailer should sit level when towing, be it a 5vr or traditional trailer.
I saw a new-ish pickup pulling an old (late 70s maybe early 80s) fifth wheel and OMG..it was so pin-high I'm not sure the front axle was carrying any load.
then yesterday I saw a newer rig, truck and 5th wheel, again very pin high - I'd guess 8" or more, on a level road.
I suppose this reduces pin weight, overloads the read axle/tires and in general is a bad idea.
Never having pulled a 5vr but lots of trailers, I'd think this would be evil to drive, handling wise.
Is it trucks today are taller than 30 years ago, or people lift their trucks and don't think about the pin height or what?
