I have been told by a good source that you should have the 5th wheel camper level plus a slight rise (2 degrees)

Sounds correct. The main thing is to make sure it isn't sitting nose down, at all.

Be careful with what you do. If the front of the trailer is above the horizontal plane, you will have stability problems. Anything above 3 or 4 inches may bring the front cap too high. I have a level on the trailer just for that measurement. Also watch your truck. If the load causes the truck to sag you may want to consider air bags so you can adjust the truck rail plane. The answer is drive slowly when you encounter a twist and turn situation.
