You'll have to adjust things, pin box or hitch high, when you couple up and load it up. Unloaded will not give you a true look at things. Load it up and check it. I spent a entire weekend adjusting. I didn't need to do much but lower my hitch 2 inches and still had 6 inches between camper and bed rails.
Good luck!!!

This will be our 2nd year with ours after having TTs for 10 years. We love ours. But I was nervous as hell when we took off with ours the first time. It was huge and the 2 lane road home just as well been a single lane!!! But it got better...

I had a Popup for about 10 years then a travel trailer for about 3 years then last year we bought our 5W, it gets easier each time I hook up and go. It will for you also. Just take it slow and easy.
