I'm higher than that so my advice is relax and enjoy the journey. As you can see I sit nose high 2 or three inches and never had a problem. Would rather be a little nose high than have to tow with one of those Fords or Chevy wannabe trucks.

Geez. Youre 13'7" already? Most places you'll be fine but isn't normal legal height 13'6"? I certainly wouldn't want to raise it any more.

Also...I've seen several mentions of sub-frame mods for the trailer. Can someone give me some detail on what's involved and ballpark cost? By the way...first time Truck owner, first time RV owner here, so get ready for me playing 1000 questions. Thanks!
A reverse level is what you're referring to for lowering the rear. You can swap the spacers from below the rear axle to above and/or a smaller spacer.

As far as a subframe, here's what I did. Can see the undercarriage before and after.

https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f6...t-18663-2.html It cost me around $300 I believe in material. I've heard in the ball park of 1-1.5k to have it done.

All good information..we pick up our 16 29.5rsts this Saturday with our new Ram 3500 crew cab. It's 4wd and has 20" tires so I am not sure how the added height will effect the combination. Biggest issue so far has been getting a hitch that will work. The 29.5 has a new Reese revolution pin box and the camping world location we purchased at seems to be very baffled by the operation of the pin box. I ended up with a pull rite 20k standard hitch. This is the first 5th wheel adventure for me so still have a lot to learn myself.
