Surveyor 251 coupler height?

My 2017 Surveyor 251RKS is in storage. Can someone tell me that height of the top of the ball coupler on the tongue? I'm looking for the height with the trailer sitting level front to back. Thanks in advance for your help.

My notes indicate that the coupler height on my 247BHDS is 18" from the top of the inside of the coupler to the ground with the trailer sitting completely level.

Our trailers likely share the same basic chassis, tire size and suspension so that should put you pretty close.

For WDH set up purposes, I set the top of the ball to 19" on a Husky TS Centerline hitch and the trailer rides perfectly level with the bars engaged.
