Leveling a Trailer To Match New Truck Height


I own a 2020 Ram 3500 and am having an issue with leveling my 5th wheel to it. The trailer is a Grand Design and so the axles are already “flipped” from the factory. Another problem I have is that my driveway entrance is pretty steep and we have to drive over makeshift ramps to clear the entrance. Will this kit help me?


Expert Reply:

The LC407131 Would definitely help raise the Fifth Wheel. It will generally add approximately 2 inches to the height of the trailer. We do not have any install videos for this as of yet, but I did include a review for you to take a look at.

Another add on you may want to check out is an Ultra-Fab skid roller # UF48-979023. This would install on the rear bumper and essentially gives you an extra wheel when you go over very steep grades.

If neither of these get you nice and level, you could go with a Fifth Wheel hitch that has a lower adjustment level. This will depend on how much clearance you have from the top of the bed rails to the closest part of the trailer, but the Reese M5 Fifth Wheel # RP37FR does have a setting of 14 inches at the lowest and still offers a 27,000 pound capacity.
