Can Blue Ox Swaypro Weight Distribution Handle Height Difference of Coupler Between 17 and 24 inch


The middle of the hitch receiver on my 2008 Toyota Tundra is at a height of 17. The distance from the ground to the top of my campers coupler is 24. Blue Ox video says you want the top of your hitch ball to be 1-2inch above your coupler, so lets use the max of 26. Will the shank on BXW1500 accommodate this height difference after including the height of the ball above the shank? Also, my new camper has a GTWR of 6400 lbs. Using 14 gives a GTW of 900 lbs., but 200 lbs. of gear behind the rear axle of my Tundra would push this to 1100 lbs. Since I havent received and used my camper yet, I dont know what my trailer weight will actually be in normal use, but I want to size my hitch for the maximum possible, so Im thinking the BXW1500 instead of the BXW1000. Thoughts?

The Blue Ox SwayPro part # BXW1500 does have the rise setting that you'll need to use to be able to tow your trailer level. Based on the weights you listed when you'll be towing this is the correct kit too as it has a tongue weight range of 1,00-1,500 lbs and you'll be at 1,100 when you are ready to tow.
