Charles, when anyone says there can be a difference, they mean in height off the ground. Three or more inches of difference between the coach and the toad would require a relief bar. It sounds like your saying the base plate is facing down. I suspect that is a problem. I suggest you let your dealer inspect your work and recommend action, if necessary.
