Choosing the Correct Rise/Drop for Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch

Question:

I purchased this hitch: 336VS503515. Does it come in pieces or as one solid piece ready to attach to my new vehicle? I currently have a 4” rise/ on my truck, but I am trading that truck in for a class B camper van Winnebago Solis Pocket 36A, which sits lower to the ground. My pull trailer is off-road sitting 26ft off the ground. I included pics of the Lock n Roll set up that I have now, the truck and mini-RV, and the new white van I am getting. Maybe I don’t need the 8 rise / even.

The # 336VS503515 comes with the adjustable channel bracket along with the adjustable channel mount and bolts. You will need to install the channel mount in the appropriate rise/drop position since it does not come fully assembled. It looks like you already have a complete Lock N Roll hitch so you actually don't need the # 336VS503515.

Instead, you could get the # 336TS515 to replace your existing channel bracket. You can remove the # 336VS503 on your current Lock N Roll and install it on the channel bracket. Also, since the Winnebago Solis Pocket 36A is shorter it is likely you will need the additional rise.

It looks like you currently have the # 336VS503505 with a 4-1/4" rise on your 2018 Colorado. This means you would need more rise on the lower van to keep your trailer level so using the additional 4" rise from the # 336TS515 will probably cover the difference. If possible, I would compare your truck to the van and see what the difference is. Otherwise you could measure once you have the van to choose the best option.

I have attached a helpful article on measuring rise/drop for you reference.
