Also any pros and cons on the adjustable height bars. Seems that might be the best way to go at this time.
Any trailer that is equiped with "torsion type" axles has "NO" realistic ball height.
The only ball heigt that can be referred to is the original measurment.
Torsion axle equipped trailers, settle in time. How much and when depends, on a number of things.
That measurement is not very critical on a single axle trailer, but becomes very very important on tandem and triaxle trailers.
The only sure way is to measure the trailer in question.
Always use a load equalizing hitch. It pays long term dividends, especially in safety.
