the owners manual or air stream service can give you the correct height.
the sales brochures list it under specification and floor plans as hitch ball height

best and simplest answer ... ?

I think a couple posters got up this morning with the left foot....
Seems a little grouchiness is happenin around here ...

folks...
read the OP ... I assume with 10000 posts and 600 posts respectively its not too much to ask ...

the OP does NOT have the trailer in his possession .... not to easy to measure anything, right ?

I was told a different number from my dealer before I picked it up, and promptly had to adjust my hitch, which takes time and would have been better spend having the dealer explaining a few more things, before the day was over .. and we needed to get going ...

hence the question is well worth asking and well worth getting a good answer

Just read the OP's original post before planting your damn response ......

We use a Equalizer hitch. It is available in many RV supply stores. The web site is helpful on selecting a hitch and shank. The height is listed in the back of the owners manual. It lists 17.75 inches for that length of trailer. The same table lists the tounge weight too. You can download the manuals from Airstream.

Hi Bob

With most F150's the standard shank reaches low enough. If the truck is brand new and empty it is about 1.5" high but the truck soon settles in that amount.
