Thanks for the suggestion. I'd not opt for the torsion suspension after this experience as it allows very little travel, and thus, the coach has a rough ride.

It stands for Tow Vehicle. I know the newer truck beds are higher. I'm changing out a hitch today. taking out of a 2004 F-250 and putting it in a 2007 F-250 the bed is about 3" higher, I think that they can still drop the Huskey down a notch to make me level.

Thanks for the explanation. I tow with a 2013 F-150 4X4. I've removed the raising blocks from the pickup axle which lowered the tailgate by two inches and brought the box clearance as low as my hilly driveway will permit, but even with all that, I'm still not close to level.

I have a 2000 F350 4x4 CC SRW and plan to get a 2017 Ford truck with the exact same specs as the 2000. If you have made this switch to a 2015 or 16, what is the difference in height. Thanks

I'm a little confused why the need for the height adjustment, unless your truck is raised above standard height.
I have a (mostly stock) 2016 F-250 which has the bed about 2" higher than the 2015 F-150, and with the Reese Titan hitch, which does have some adjustment, can tow or 2015 Rockwood fiver level (as best as I can tell using a spirit level), with over 6" clearance over the bed rails.

Actually I guess that's maybe due to the pin weight, because our fiver does have a heavier pin weight than any other "ultra light" I've seen, and thus probably drops the rear of the truck more than many others would, so a fiver with a lighter pin weight may ride higher at the front

My pickup is a 4X4. It is actually lower, by two inches because of removing the Raising blocks Four installed between the bottom of the springs and top of the axle flange. I have a bed cover that raises the height by maybe an inch and a half. With maybe less than the 6" clearance, you mentioned, the trailer is high in the front, thus loading it's rear axle more than it's front axle and adding additional pin weight to the pickup. The Dexter lift kit will add 2.625" to the trailer. That will help level it out.
