Tongue height for XLR Boost 20cb

New to the forum, thanks for having me. Picking up my new to me Rv. 2018 XLR Boost 20CB, dry weight is 5068lbs. Does anyone know the approximate tongue height? Trying to get my hitch setup before going to get it.

And one side question, can I pull the factory build sheet with the vin?

To compensate for the weight of the "toy" loaded in the rear, toy haulers tend to have the axles shifted rearward a bit to keep toungue weight at 10% to 15% of the weight of the trailer..
In other words, toyhaulers tend to have heavier than average tongue weights.
I would expect tongue weights to be 600 to 900lbs on your XLR...depending on how it is loaded.
You can add about 10% to your dry weight for your actual empty weight.
What are you pulling it with?

Thanks for the reply, upfly! We’re pulling it with a ‘03 Silverado 1500HD, light duty 2500. Was actually wondering what the tongue height will be, not the weight. If you know please let me know. Thanks

I don't think anyone can predict what the tongue weight will be, only what the weight should be.
Your hitch set-up is preformed during the first hitching process.

Thanks I follow you and figured it would need to be fine tuned. Just was looking for the starting point, but can totally do it on site.

The OP asks for height and everyone is commenting on weight.

Moved to XLR sub-forum, since the OP wants model-specific information.

My bad, now I see you are asking about height and not weight, a quick reading mistake.
