Average hitch height?

I am looking to pick up our 92 Excella in SC in a few weeks and trying to figure out the drop/rise I need for my WD hitch bar. The top of the 2in receiver on my truck is 20" from the ground. I figure if I can find the average hitch height of the Excella hitch, I can order the hitch bar assembly online and save a bunch over going to the closest Camping World there. I know I will have to take exact measurements once I am there to be able to adjust the head accordingly, but hoping to get an idea first. Thanks for any help you can give.

I have loved reading how all 90's Excella owners think this is the best designed trailer by AS. Makes me feel good about my choice.

While I am sure it varies some between models around 19 inches to the top of the ball will probably be close enough to bring it home and you can refine it later

The '92 Excella is 18 3/4". Earlier than that there were a lot that were 19 1/2".

Of course, if you want to have trailer and TV level, and the axles have sagged (don't they all?) then it could well be lower.

Thanks RickDavis and Aage. This gives me a good idea. If others have differing measurements let me know or else I am going to get on line and start ordering.. I am getting excited.
