Escape 19 coupler height

Howdy All
I read in a previous thread that the Escape 19 coupler height is 21". Is this distance between the ground and the bottom of the coupler ?

Distance from ground to top of the coupler, so when hitched, the trailer is level...

Hmmm
So the 21" height on the hitch ball mount is to the top of the 2" ball for the trailer to be level ?

No, I guess it is to the bottom of the trailer hitch coupler which sits on your stinger with the ball inside the coupler, 21" up from the ground. Does this make sense, maybe an adjustable receiver would be good, that is what I use, to allow for any vehicle squat.

The top of "where the ball would seat inside the coupler". Measuring to the top of the receiver would be so close that it is close enough.

Jim, kinda curious as to what you are referring to as a stinger. Is it the same as the draw bar (ball mount). I just have never heard of that term used before. Must be one of those eastern terms.

yes, the removable draw bar is sometimes referred as "stinger" particularly when you bump into it in the middle of the night and you end up with a bruised and greasy leg- you got stung!!
