    New truck/What should I consider

    I recently upgraded to an F250 that has a 2-inch lift. My camper is a bumper pull and barely lifts high enough to reach the hitch. Is there anything I need to consider before I start towing my trailer? My main concern is that the trailer currently looks like itís front end is raised higher than the back end giving it an imbalanced look when itís on the hitch. Am I okay to tow like this? Appreciate your feedback.

    You may want to look into a drop hitch to level everything out.

    You will have to measure the difference and buy a drop down hitch to cover that distance, v they make drop downs, usually in 2" increments. Are you using a weight distribution hitch?

    Thank you all for the advice. Where would you recommend getting a drop hitch from? Are there online retailers you would recommend?

    Do you have a weight distribution hitch/bars setup yet? The hitch in these setups is frequently height adjustable solving the problem of height and gaining weight distribution for safer and better towing. Cheers.
