5th wheel height

I checked the height of my new 2018 Eagle 355MBQS recently, and found that with my 2nd A/C I was well over the federal restriction of 13' 6".

The brochure advertises it at 13' 5", but the actual height was 13' 9 1/2".

Anyone else measure their 5th wheel?

My advertised height is 13’ 4”. When hitched to the TV I measured 13’ 5” at the front AC.

I believe the specified height is measured when the trailer is LEVEL. If you are towing nose-high then your actual height will be taller than specified. That is why it is important to measure your actual height.

The difference in my camper towing and off the truck was 1/4". All measurements were taken by a certified mechanic.

Regardless, Jayco is replacing the AC on onsite while I'm on vacation. Their engineers said this camper should have a low profile on it.

I have a 2019 321RSTS Eagle and my height is 13'7". Does anyone know for sure if they are supposed to have the low profile air conditioner installed from the factory?

I paid extra for the factory to install a low profile unit for the bedroom. I didn't like how high the standard unit was. This wasn't an option. The dealer had to contact the factory. Fortunately for me they were willing to even though it wasn't an option on the Eagle line. 2017 Eagle 293RKDS.
