Yea, my previous Equal-i-zer was the same size as yours, as was our trailer by the way, and I had it turned up and worked fine. The one that their hitch selection tool was telling me I needed really for our new trailer didn't jive w/ the measurements I had in hand and the coupler height from Jayco (which I verified last weekend at the dealer). Anyway, talking w/ a real person there at Progress Mfg., and him actually measuring the hitches there, we both agreed that the 4800 was the one that would work and not interfere w/ my tailgate. And it will be turned up. When the default hitch w/ one of their packaged systems doesn't work, another one is very expensive to order, so you better get it right. I love their support folks.
