What's the hitch height on the Rockwood A122TH

I'm taking delivery tomorrow and would like to know this in advance since I'm driving 4+ hours to the dealer. I couldn't find this spec in the brochure, online(looked in FAQ too) or within the owners manual pdf.

I assume it's lower than the 19"-20" of my Toyota furnished ball hitch mount, which happened to nicely line up with my Fleetwood Evolution and Jayco Baja. ...but I haven't even seen an example of what I'm buying tomorrow so what do I know?!

19"-20" should be good

I dont know about the 2014 TH. The height (top) of my 2012 TH coupler is almost 20". Ask the dealer to measure yours before you make the 4 hr drive? Or just buy what you need from them, then you'd know for sure after seeing and measuring for yourself....

If nothing else, I'm betting there is a Tractor Supply or similar store in the area.

20" sounds about right. My 2280BH was right around there. Seems pretty standard frame height on popups and A frames.

Our dealer told us to have a hitch about knee high.

Most tongue trailers are between 19" & 20". Your present hitch should be fine.

I think his point was that just about any thing about that height would get you home and then you could find tune.

That's what I did. My sig pic was taken before unhooking from the dealership. The driveway is a little more sloped toward the front so it's somewhat of an optical illusion, but is is about an inch high on the front of the trailer. I was only 14 mi. from home with a 50 mph speed limit the whole way, so I wasn't concerned about it.
