Dan and Kathy
Sorry, I don't have any photos of the hitch hooked up to share. I have six threads showing when towing, giving a very slight upward pitch to the trailer.

Dan and Kathy, here's an old shot that shows it on relatively level ground.

Is your trailer standard height or 'high lift'? Looks standard to me. I'm debating right now which way to go. Yours looks to have plenty of clearance for just about any situation.
Thanks,
Dan

Wow, way to resurrect an old thread!

Yeah, it's just standard height. Works for us.

I'm just cruising all the threads before making my final option selections. Thanks for the help, I think I'll go standard height.

Good on you for doing this too. So many could benefit from past threads if they read and searched more.

My 19 was lifted because I thought it was a good idea. I definitely did not need it, nor would most people, even for rougher roads. You would have to really be on some undulating ground to need it. I opted out for my 5.0TA.

I spent months reading just about every thread on this forum, or so it seemed. I'd go section by section and jot down notes as I went along. That's how I stumbled across the fellow from Alaska commenting this his trailer wasn't big enough to wad a dead moose in. I laughed myself silly over that one, trying to imagine someone trying that and how it would look and all that.
