That is a option on some trucks but living in the country and using the 4 wheel at times year round I didn't want to loose the clearance.

My concern is the height of the trailer. It is about 13'5". Previous owner installed an AC in the bedroom which added 8-10 inches to height.

That is getting up there. If the ac is in the front and you are only raising the rear it will not effect the front height to much. You would have to have someone to take a good look at it to advise you on what options you have.

I had 4 inches and went to Goshen and had a lift kit installed, bolt on, warranty approved. I then had 6 inches with the F 150 and towed. The new F 250 box walls are 2 inches lower and I have 8 inches now and a level towing. I would make sure not being too high as teh rear axle and tires will take a beating.

The minimum recommended clearance between the truck rails and the trailer is six inches. I would adjust the hitch plate so the trailer is as level as possible, however it should never be lower in the front.

Thanks for all of the help. Lowered my hitch in the bed to the lowest holes and I have about 7-7.5 inches of clearance. Measured the trailer height and it is about 13' 2". Only slightly nose up, but I can live with that.

Love this forum---I have learned so much. Thanks and have a great day!

Dwight
