Charles, It's 25" to the top of my hitch receiver and 22" to the top inside of the hitch ball with the trailer sitting level.
I bought a Husky Center Line TS Hitch on rvautoparts.com for $211.54 model #33039 it's for 1K to 1.4K tongue weight
I also ordered a Husky Shank model #32554 it for the 2.5" hitch receiver and can do a 5 1/8 drop with the Centerline hitch it was only $47.78 and the shipping was only $16.95 for both items. The only problem is the shank is backordered and won't ship for about 4 weeks which was ok with me.
So for $276.27 I thought that was a great deal....The best price I could find on an Equalizer shank that would have work for me with the 2.5" receiver opening would have been model #EQ90-02-4900 that's around $150
The shank I'm currently using is an Eazlift extra drop that could do 9" of drop I had a welding shop cut off the approx 3" that I didn't need off the bottom. I would have kept that but it's for a 2" receiver and I wanted to get a 2.5"
