Hensley hitch bar size?

Hi all,

It's amazing what one might find with Google... but, I couldn't find what size drop I need for my combo, and airforums looked like the place to ask:
19-3/4" coupler height
16-7/8" hitch receiver (top of opening)

It's a Ford E-350 and 30' Classic Slide

Anybody with a similar setup? Any advice? Lessons learned?

Thank you!

With the weight of the trailer you may be ok with a straight bar , after that you have a 2 inch drop . Hensley does not have a one inch drop . You can give them a call and tell them what you have and they will give you an idea what you may need . Good Luck , Kipper

The receiver height on our 2500 Burb is 22".

16 7/8" seems low for a 350. Any pic's?

This pic is with a 4" drop, had to go to a 6.

Aaron at the Hensley office was a great help to me with two previous TV's. I got the proper drop to level the AS and technical support on another issue. Very nice customer service. Give them a call.
