Hitch ball height

Anyone with a Rockwood A128s know what the hitch ball height is for level towing?

Seems rather simple to me. Level the camper on reasonably flat ground and measure the bottom of the ball hitch. This is where you want the bottom of the hitch ball AFTER any weight distribution and tongue is hooked up. It may take a couple of tries to get the height right BEFORE so that the AFTER measurement is where you want it.

Thanks...good info, but I asked because I do not have the trailer yet and was hoping someone with the same trailer could help me be ready to pick up the trailer with the proper ball mount.

My A122S is 18" from the ground to the inside top of the coupler on my slab. The drop you need will depend on how much your TV squats down. For your F250, the is probably not so much. For My Tundra OTOH, squats quite a bit with the tongue weight in excess of 400#.
