291RK Hitch Height

Just curious if anyone knows what the hitch height at level is on a 2019 291RK? I'm currently setup on the Jayco I'm trading in at about 22 inches. The ST sits higher, so I'm hoping to just have to flip the ball mount over and have the height I need.

I'm using a Reese Pro WDH with round bars and the TV is a 2017 F250 SD. Still have a week before I go do the demo and bring it home, just want to be ready.

Thanks for your help!

The height is determined by tow vehicle suspension, trailer tongue weight which varies due to what and where you load personal items in the trailer. There is no specific height. It varies for every situation. Best advice is to hook trailer and adjust ball height and WD torsion bars for a level ride. This should be done at pickup by the specialist who performs the pickup checklist during your walk through.

That's really what I was hoping the dealer would do. It was setup on a Tundra, then i bought the Ford and got lucky with doing it myself since the Ford was taller.

Couldn't find a more updated version of this here goes.
We are new owners of a 2018 291RK which we have yet to pick up. New to us but at a dealer in another city. Roads are not conducive to towing right now. I have a new Husky Centerline and I'm towing as below. The instructions are very explicit on how to do the initial setup so I'm trying to do that before going to pick up our unit. On the included shank on the lowest hole set I'm still almost 3" higher to the top of the ball than the 18" I measured when viewing the unit. That viewing was bone empty, level etc. to the top of the ball receiver on the tongue. So I'm contemplating a new shank with more drop. BUT real world use is valuable so just how much drop when connected am to expect? I believe the Husky is a little unique so any users out there?

I have a '19 291 RK. My trailer hitch height is 22 1/2" tall. Sounds like you'll be ok leaving it at that Height to get it home if the dealer doesn't set it up for you. I'm towing with a 3/4 ton chevy diesel and you won't even know its back there with the F250. If they don't set it up for you there should be all kind of videos on youtube or that shows set up
