hitch height

Since we don't have our Georgetown XL 378 yet I was wondering if someone could tell me the hitch height. We think we will need to buy a drop hitch but not sure.

Thanks,
Linda

May I ask what it is you plan on towing?

If a TOAD what year/brand/model is it.

hitch for what? Its not a trailer. You are leaving something out here. Are you towing something with it?

Hitch height on the Georgetown. We will be towing a Scion but need to know the hitch height on the RV.

Might be best to wait till you get it, make a measurement, then run to your local Walmart to get a ball mount. Unless someone has an exact figure for you

Just a heads up. I had to use a 4 inch drop for a 2004 Saturn VUE. Wait till you have the unit and measure accordingly. There are so many variables involved and a pre-buy without actualls would not be a good idea. what you will need, if any. is readily available.

I use a 8" drop for my Fiat but here are a few pictures of the 378 XL height.
I would wait until you get the motorhome and your car plate as well as the tow bar. Then you can decide like I did.
You want it as level as you can get it.
From the top of my drop to the floor is 25" and as you can see I have it almost exactly 25" +- 1/2"
