The Height of the Hitch - 2012 27RB

I'm a new owner of a Cruiser Aire Travel Trailer - 2012 27RB. Does anyone know the height of the hitch when the trailer is level?

I see no one has responded so I'll jump in without this trailer and estimate like many others, 23-24"'s.

Get an adjustable hitch so you can move it up or down to get it level.

Some factors to consider will be the type of truck and sag, weight dist hitch, weight distribution inside trailer, trailer tire size, etc.

Most of the time it's really a trial and error approach but take the time to get it right. Be sure to get the 10-15% tongue weight. Find a scale if necessary.

Same here. different trailer, but my tongue height is 23". I actually have to set my hitch height to 24" due to truck sag.

Thanks for your comments! This gives us a good baseline to start with. We are so excited to go camping with it, unfortunately winter doesn't want gave in quickly. Still lots of snow here in the northern parts of ontario.
