Hi, I'm planning to travel north tomorrow to pick up a 1972 31 ft Sovereign
I plan to tow with 2006 F150 crew cab 5.4l. The truck came with the factory tow package and I'll install a brake control. My concern is that I've measured the height of the 2" receiver and it's 15.5 inches from the ground at center. The seller has agreed to sell me his hitch as the airstream has the factory sway/WD bars. The hitch, however has been used on a Chevy 3/4 ton with a receiver height of 20". It's not height adjustable, he had it fabricated in the 80's for his vehicle.
I'd like to use the hitch that's matched to the original system and thus have the stability that comes with it but I'm concerned about the height disparity. It will be a 1000 mile trip.
Is the 4-5 inch drop too much? I've towed all kinds of loads over the years, but not an Airstream.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
