Looks great! Glad you found a solution. Another benefit is now your trailer is more universal and can be towed by any standard fullsize truck if you decide to trade in or ever need it towed by another truck.

Before raising the unit, check the king pin assembly. Most built today can be lowered or raised several inches.

You're way late to the party.

My sabre was nose high on my new ram.

I couldn't raise the trailer, as I only have inches to spare under a bridge that I frequently go under.

So I lowered the rear of the truck and lowered the hitch.

I looked at those options before raising the RV. My 2014 Ram 2500 has coil rear springs not leaf. Cutting the coils or installing coils from a 1500 not an option. The hitch in the truck is sitting on the bottom and the factory revolution on the RV has no adjustment. I raised the trailer 3" and all is good. On level concrete from ground level to the top of the front air conditioner 12' 10" just clears. 13' is what I call good to go.
