Hitch height '85 sovereign, 25'

Can somebody "please" tell me the hitch height of an '85 Sovereign, 25' TT?
I found it once somewhere on the forum and can't seem to find it again. that CRStuff thing that seems to grow more prevelant every day. Want to get the correct drop for a Hensley hitch and the AS is in Montana. I called the previous owner, ( AS is still sitting in his yard), and asked him to measure and he came back with 15 1/2" but I think I read that it's higher than that. My Tow vehicle is 19 3/4" to inside top of receiver.

Appreciate your help, Jess

Jess,
According to my table is should be 18.75", I assume that is based on a new trailer unloaded. I attached the table for you.

Jess,
I have an '86 25' Sovereign which I purchased from a gentleman in Atlanta. He towed it with a Ford F-250 4X4 which had about the same heigth as you posted. He was using a 6" drop for the Hensley on the trailer. He said that it had an ever so slight rise on the front but was almost level when all hitched up. An 8" would have been too much from his setup. My '01 Chevy 2500hd measures over 20" to the bottom opening of the receiver and the trailer still looks fine. I also was afraid that an 8" would be too much drop.

Thankyou, Thankyou and Thankyou:

I really appreciate the help. Looks like a 6" drop will work the best w/my truck.

Can't wait to hitch up! Jess
