Hello my name is Allen and I am about to be a proud owner of a WPT27ULPS and new comer to this forum.. It's on order :thumbsup:
I am trying to get the truck hitch system set up before it arrives and need to know if anyone has this trailer and can tell me what the trailer tongue height is to top of coupler when level?

cubboatn, your post should be in the Welcome Mat section or the Towing section or the brand's section. i can move it to where you think it would be the best place for the answers you want.

i'm assuming it's a Wolf Pup but not sure since you didn't post the brand.
also, you need to post what your tow vehicle is and if it's 4x4 or not, since that affects the receiver's height.
also, what WDH system you'll be using.

Thanks Dan,

I had a hard time posting for the first time, so I am not surprised it's in the wrong place. Sorry

The trailer is a Work and Play Ultra Lite 27ULPS. Truck is 2011 F-150 Lariat Limited 4x4 with heavy duty trailer option. I was thinking of using the Reese "RP66084 or RP66155" for the WDH. I was just trying to get a jump on setting up the head assembly before the trailer arrived.

Thanks again Dan

i'll move it to the W&P sub-section under the Toyhaulers section.
it's more important to get the actual hitch height from someone with the same brand/model trailer.

Yes, windrider owns one, but not that model. Center the ball at about 21 inches, but don't torque anything to spec. take your tools with you, and make adjustments when you pick up the camper. Torque everything before towing. Now tow it home. Once you get it loaded for camping, toys include, take a test pull of 30 miles or so, including interstate travel. Make more adjustments. Now when you go camping, take your tools. You may have to adjust several times to get it right. Of course I write all this without knowing what tow vehicle you have, or what hitch you plan on using.

And WELCOME to the forums.


And I will delete the thread in the Welcome Mat.

cuboatn, i looked at both Reese models you posted and you can get a real Equal-i-zer for a lot less money and free shipping.
an Equalizer from RVW will run around $450 with free shipping.

Windrider, the OP has a new F-150 Lariat 4x4.
