Trailer has nose up position

My rig is a 2012 F150 Screw with 2011 27.5 bhs Eagle ;and after all adjustments on trailer hitch and truck hitch, I'm still have a small nose
up stance. I have been told that the two axels are made to adjust for this
and if I don't go crazy (overload or go off road) I should be fine. Open to solutions or do I leave it alone and watch rear trailer axel (tires -bearings)
more often?

Define small nose up. Mine sits up a bit and never had a problem. I'm 3 inches high on the front frame to the rear.

Hi! Mine is a little more than 4 less than 5 in. . would 16. in tires improve trailer height? ( truck has 18 in.) Your problem free trailering calms some of my fears.

16's might bring it up a bit. i would drive it some and keep an eye on it. If you see additional wear on the rears then just rotate the tires.

Sounds like a plan. I have seen a few with higher pitches and they are truck'n down the road.

Mine was 6 inches high. This thread shows what I ended up doing.

Not sure what it would cost to have someone do a subframe. I've heard 1500ish...
We did the subframe ourselves, so it was just materials cost.

Check to see if your suspension is adjustable. If it isn't perhaps longer shackles. How much clearance between the TV bed rails and the 5th, 6" seems to the agreed on spacing. If you have more maybe raising the pin box and/or lowering the hitch would help.
