will an 8280 sit level ?

I am planning to order a rockwell 8280 but I am concerned about the trailer sitting level when it is hooked to my 2500 dodge 4x4. I would like to hear from someone that is pulling an 8280 with a dodge 2500HD

I have a 2010 8280ws pulling with 1500 mega cab. Sits pretty close to level. I added Super Springs and it still sits the same so you should be level.

Hope you enjoy yours as much as we have enjoyed ours.

What is the height of the truck unloaded measured at the tailgate? Our F250 RWD measures 55" unloaded...the truck settles about 3/4" hooked up and I have 6 1/2" of clearance between the truck bed rails and the 5W overhang with the camper within 1/2" of level .


Edit: I checked the tailgate height is 54", not 55".
