2013 Anthem 44 DLQ hitch height

Would someone please measure the height of their hitch above the ground? Please measure with airbags inflated. I'm trying to determine if I'll need a drop hitch extension. Thanks.

I would think that you would extend your toe bar from your car to your M.H. and check to make sure that it is level then measure how far (if any) distence there is to your hitch in back of your M.H.
That should tell you what kind of a drop (if any) you need.
Eather 1,2,or 3 inches.
You can buy one at Camping World or Walmart

You are correct and that would apply if I had my coach. Since it has not arrived, I can make the calculation if I have the hitch height.

For others who may be thinking about the same thing, don't forget that the drop hitch needs the same tow rating as the receiver which on the Entegra is 15,000 pounds. JMHO

Thanks! Looks like I'll need a 6" drop which I will confirm upon delivery.

Receiver on our Aspire is 22.5 in height so we had to get a 6 inch drop receiver. We got the 6000lb rated one since our tow only weighs 3500 lbs. Even though our coach has a higher rated hitch Roadmaster said the 6,000 lb. one would be sufficient.
