Hitch height at top of ball

Anyone that has a TT comparable to a 2707ws that can give me a accurate measurement while trailer is level and on flat ground, from ground to top of where the ball would be? Have a 2707ws on order and found a Hensley cheap but need to get a different stinger. Thanks

If I remember correctly over three different trailers my measurement was 16 inches ground to top inside socket

Thanks, glad I asked. Dealer I asked said 23 1/2 -24". Guess Im going to have to find a similar model on a lot somewhere and measure. To big of a swing here.

If you are trying to set up a Hensley with the correct Stinger,you Do need "Your units Height"! For "Ball Park Height" I use "19""! Youroo!! PS please come back and tell what Your Height is,which I guess at "6' 2"! Youroo!!

I believe 23 1/2" is in the ballpark. 16" seems way too low.

Did we get the answer on this? I just bought a 2707ws and need to set my hitch height before I get to dealer 100 miles away.

Ours sits right close to 23". Congrats on the 2707. We love ours.

Thanks! Our dealer is 2 hours away and I think I may have missed something. I think I remember seeing a combo black/gray water drain on the corner and MAYBE another drain 1/2 way up? I could be confusing it with another I looked at so many!
