Hitch height q: 7.5 inch difference
Have a question about which ball mount (shaft) to buy.
Prepping my TV, a 2007 Tahoe, for picking up a new 145RB on Tuesday.
Basic hookup; no weight distributing hitch.
I plan to buy a mount and a 2" ball, and mount on my Tahoe receiver before I drive the hour to the dealer's. They'll install the brake controller and a 2-LP-tank tray.
The top of the receiver on my Tahoe (see pic) is about 23.5" off the ground (unloaded; I'll have just one occupant, me, and I'm under 125 pounds soaking wet).
The ball will add about 2" height, putting the top of the ball at about 25.5" off the ground.
The dealer tells me that "the trailer measures 18” to the top of the ball when level" (unloaded, again) (see other pic).
So I have about a 7.5-inch difference to overcome.
(Did I figure all that right? Newbie.)
Buy a mount with an 8-inch drop? Or would 6-inch be better, meaning the trailer would be a bit nose-up?
