Towing a 5er Level

I know that level is where you should be but if you have lowered the hitch to lowest setting and raised the pin to highest setting and still 2 inches high is worth going to all the trouble to raise the 5er? I have talk to people that like the nose little high to people that they have towed 5 and 6 inches high for years. I was told by the dealer not to worry about a couple inches since I have the MorRyde suspension and that will equal out the weight between the front and rear axles and shouldn't be a problem.

I was told the main reason to tow level is shifting the weight from the forward axle to the aft axle and over load the rear axle on the 5er. Is that true or is there other reasons you need to tow level?

I've got the same question. Hoping that some with experience will chime in on your post...and maybe also visit mine.

Good luck and I wish you many years of happy camping.
