I did a little research and found that the draw bar came with your Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch Receiver with Drawbar, part # 60815 (no longer available), is the Sportframe Drawbar 4 inch Rise, part # 3594.

Since your hitch is a Class I hitch it is not recommended that you use any drawbar other than the one that the hitch manufacturer recommends otherwise you will void your warranty.

The reason they are very particular about using the right rise/drop drawbar is that if you were to get rear-ended with your trailer attached you would not want the trailer too high as it might come through the interior, or too low as it might hit a fuel tank. The recommended height is usually so that if the trailer were to come forward into the vehicle it would hit the bumper and hopefully stop.

For that reason I can not safely recommend you use a drawbar with a 5 inch rise like the Curt Class I Drawbar - 5 inch Rise, part # C45024.
