Inch Difference

My 25 foot Airstream's front end is about one to two inches higher than my back end when hitched up (Reese hitch). I cannot adjust any further. Is this small difference an issue?

I was told by the folks at Jackson Center that towing a nose high double axle trailer puts damaging stresses on the rear axle and tires. True or not, sounds good to me.

One or two inches over 25 feet is insignificant, tow away!
