Height of coupler Catalina Summit 174RB


I'm new to this forum (and also new to RV) and I have a simple question.

Does anyone knows the exact height of the coupler on an 2021 Catalina Summit 174RB (the bottom of the coupler).

I'm shopping for an Andersen WDS and I need that measurement for the shank size.

Also, if you know the frame size???

You wont know exact height until you hook it up to your tow vehicle and get the WDH dialed in.

I don't know your answer since I don't have that model. I realize that you are only asking for a simple measurement and not an explanation of the process.

However, there are numerous Youtube videos on setting up your WDS. The starting point is leveling up your trailer on a level surface and measuring the height of the bottom of the coupler. Try to get the trailer as level as possible, but close is probably good enough. No two people will arrive with the exact same measurement.
