I have seen those, but I would have to see if the swinging of the doors would hit the tongue jack as well -- the problem with the newer F150's (we have an 09) is that the bed of the truck (and therefore the tailgate) is deeper than previous models, and it actually hits the jack (and it's already been rotated back). I've been doing research recently in seeing if there is a lower profile tongue jack (as our is the original) or something that is perhaps lower (even if it requires blocks to level).

Hey Shawn,
A Hensley or Pro Pride moves the trailer a foot further away from the tow vehicle.
My 2011 F150 tailgate doesn't come close to hitting the jack post.
Not a cheap fix, but!!!!

Yeah, I know -- at this point we've logged 12k miles on it in it's current configuration, and it's okay. Next year's loop (i.e. the east coast) we'll just make the weekly trips smaller (like 2 to 3 hours rather than 4 to 6 hours), that way we won't have to unhitch to let the dogs out.
