One thing many people overlook is the tire size on the truck. Lots of people want to put oversize tires on their trucks, but don't think about all the other kinds of problems that it causes.

Are your rv axles on top or bottom of springs?
If on top flip them and that should fix it pretty close. It is a pita but easy solution.

The newer HT line of fivers already have them flipped, so that option is out. I think one could go to a frame shop and have a lift put on the RV, but I am not sure I would like that too much. With todays newer 4x4's, the bed sits up so high (my bedrail is 59 inches from the ground...bone stock 2014 Ram 3500 SRW), I dont think the HT series and one ton trucks are a good match at all

I have a 1 ton and an HT. It's no problem at all. It would look a little better if the trailer were and inch or two higher but it's never been a problem operationally.

I guess to get the towing capacity, they have to make them taller. I looked at a new 2500 lonestar yesterday...could set my chin on the bedrail. Yup, right at 59-60 inches.

Granted my old wornout Ford has less power, a lot more miles, a lot more wear, and don't look near as good as any the new trucks, but it fits my HT29.5 perfect. Bed rail is 53''. Have 9 inches between bedrail and bottom of camper. Truck and camper set about as level as it can get.

Nice rig! Doesn't look too nose high to me.

Not sure about you guys trailer, but my bottom step is close enough to the ground I could put a 1-2'' block under my trailer if I needed too and be fine. 2'' would be pushing it though IMO. Much taller and it will be bumping 13' to the AC.
