Coupler height on Timberidge 21 FQS

I am trying to determine what the coupler height is on a Timberidge 21 FQS. I have ordered the Titanium series with the Morryde Suspension and E load tires, so it will be slightly higher than the Mountain series. Any help is appreciated. i want to make sure my hitch will adjust enough for the higher coupler height.

Well mine is now at the top notch of my stinger I est it to be between 23-25" to the top of the ball. It started out in the next to the top holes but was still a bit low in front so I moved it to the top notch this weekend - will be towing again in a couple of weeks.

Actually the Mountain and Titanium Series are the same frame height the only thing that changes that is the Off Road 4X package with the bigger wheels, tires, and the Mor Ride 3000 equalizer.

No way any Outdoors RV trailer is 23" - 25" to the top of the ball. Go between your trailer wheels, measure from the ground to the bottom of the frame. That measurement will be between 23" - 25". That's to the bottom of the frame. The frame is 7" thick. The hitch is mounted directly forward of the frame, not below the frame. So the ball is exactly level with the top of the frame. So 23" - 25" plus 7" frame thickness = 30" to 32" ball coupler height. Count on that. Your ball will have to be somewhere around 30", putting the trailer about 1" low at the front, which is about right.

Yes you are more correct - I was simply guessing - and now that I think about it that was the measurement for my old AF so I need to add at least 7 inches to it. I also like your idea of how to measure it - in the past I have leveled the trailer and measured the distance to the top of the coupler.

I made that measurement last week on several timber ridge and blackstone trailers. Each one was approximately 31" ... just confirming what was said in earlier post.

Having a stock 2005 duramax truck, my truck tailgate when lowered is barely higher than that.
