I think I have the longest drop hitch Equalizer makes and I'm at the bottom of it. Don't think I could get the TT level if the hitch was on the bottom.

Maybe that's one small reason to prefer the "top-loader"?

Tall TV with low coupler

The combination of the above makes for trouble during set up and low ground clearance for the bars.

I think this is why my Reese Straight Line was set up with incorrect bolt holes to begin with. Some old notes off another forum also explained why I was bending brackets during turns. Getting it right the first time makes for a fatter wallet and less hassle.

My 2500 Chevy would work easier with the top coupler I'm thinking after using this bottom one for 3 1/2 years.

OH! Lippert is located just a few miles north east of the Flagstaff plant where the trailers are assembled. Why build your own if someone else is so close I guess. Google Earth is a wonderful thing. Your own private drone.

A bit off topic but what aceinspp was saying concerning FR frames being manufactured by Lippert...isn't Lippert the company that makes the slide out systems of FR? OH,OH !!!!

Something about Lippert that made me say WTF.... I need one of my slides adjusted. Lippert says anyone making adjustments must be Lippert Certified. So I asked where can i find someone Lippert Certified? They said they don't have a list nor can they provide that information. There's a Lippert manufacturing facility about 40 miles from me in Arkansas City, KS . So I asked if I could go there and have my Lippert slide adjusted? They said they are not Lippert certified there. What.... Lippert employee's are not certified to do work on what they manufacture. I give up. ..

Probably don't make RV parts there. Guess you need to take back to dealer. Later RJD

Been by there they manufacture frames from what i could see from the highway. From what I gather even the dealers are not actually Lippert certified. Really don't want someone experimenting. ..

If that is the case be a lot of folks not getting things fixed at dealers. I think there is something amiss here. Sounds like Lippert passing the buck. I say one thing mine gets out of adjustment back to the dealer it goes for warranty work. Let them hash it out. Later RJD

Mine is a bottom feeder. The greatest hitch coupler thingy of all time!
