Wfd44, we requested our unit be set in the bottom bracket hole (the adjustment described above) from the factory. Hopefully it will show up that way. You might have your dealer contact Jayco and request the higher setting.

I asked my dealer to do that after reading all these posts about 3/4 tons pulling HT's, and was told "We'll change the axle position and make any other adjustments necessary once we hook it up to your truck, no problem". Guess I'll find out in a few weeks...

The HT designation is a bit ambitious in reality. I think there may be one or two models on the small end that you might tow with a very well equipped 1/2 ton, but beyond that, no way. Also, when did the model numbers stop making any sense? We're getting the 28.5 BHXB which is longer, heavier, and has a longer wheelbase than the 29.5 models. I'm used to travel trailers where the numbers equated to interior length......��

Thanks everyone for the help. Looks like the leading contender is the Curt E-16 slider hitch with the single slide jaw latch. Installed height is adjustable from 14-17 inches.

I have recently just ordered a new jayco eagle ht 29.5 fbds and wondering the same thing about the height and was wondering about the cord as if it's long enough to reach the bumper 7 way connector as I am transitioning from travel trailer to fifth wheel I own a 2005 gmc 2500 and it's typical lower than any other 3/4 ton out there almost more like half ton height

I have to disagree, after owning a Drawtite,and Reese, I went with a B&W Companion, and it is buy far tighter with no slop, with 1" double locking jaws. It is a little heavy, but breaks down in 2 pieces to set in the truck.
With my 2013 Eagle HT 26.5 I had to set it back 3" from the center adjustment, since Jayco does not have angled corners on the front cap.

I had to use my bumper connector this year (long story) and although my 5th is different and my Ford is probably taller I can't imagine the cord wouldn't be long enough for you - there was a lot of length left that I had to secure in the bed.
