I didn't pay too much attention to it when we looked at the display model. 31.25" is about crotch height on me, and I don't seem to recall the coupler on the trailer to be that high! I'm hoping that number is incorrect since I have no problem with lowering the ball height, but without purchasing additional equipment, I can't go any higher.

This same issue is of a concern to me right now. We pick up our Whitehawk 20MRB tomorrow. The Jayco literature states a ball height of 26 1/4 inches. My Andersen WDH is a bit shy of that altitude. So, I am hoping it has a height of something that Tim L mentions above.

When I checked I was told 23.5" to bottom of ball. I bet your right on the money. 31 1/4" is way to high.

Well also the height measurement should be as scout said with the trailer level and to the bottom of the hitch ball, that's the easiest way to measure. Mine when I pull it off of my hitch to clear the ball might be getting close to 30 inches or so but that's with about an inch of Clearence to get out from under it.

The dealer should be setting the hitch up for you as part of the after sales service...


Hi Manitoba.. how are the mosquitoes there this year?

The dealer wanted $75 to set up the hitch. I don't believe in paying someone to do something I'm quite capable of doing myself. Setting up a WDH isn't difficult with an understanding of how they work. The only problem I'm having is with the 31 inches.

No mosquitoes yet, but tomorrow's another day!

Why do you say the height measurement is to the bottom of the ball? When I called Jayco to ask them for the hitch height of my trailer, they told me what it was, and said that was to the top of the ball.

Thanks.

Do you tow with trailer on top of ball or bottom?

Man, you have lost me now. The Coupler sits on top of the ball on my trailer, so I would have to say on top. I'm not being smart, I just don't get it about the bottom of the ball thing when it comes to the hitch height measurement.
