The more the unit is out of level whilst towing the more stress that's applied to the axle .

Turbs
One inch out of level is not excessive.
The OP will be fine.

An inch high or low is as close to level as you can get. If you wanted it to be perfectly level, you'd have to drop the hitch or raise the pinbox 1/2". The smallest pinbox adjustment is 1" and on my hitch the smallest adjustment is 1 1/2".

To the OP, if you had the drop your hitch to the lowest level, how was the clearance between the truck's bed rails and the fiver's overhang?

That makes sense as you would be transferring more weight to the trailer axles and off of the truck's payload.
