New to 5th Wheelin

Bought a 2011 Keystone Montana Mountaineer Edition 347 THE from Campers Inn, in Mocksville, NC we love it, but being new to 5th wheels just wanted you veteran 5th wheel pullers to look at pics of my right and tell me if it looks set up correctly. I assume, like a TV you want the tow, and the camper as level as possible.

Looks nice from the pic. Can't tell what your bed sidewall clearance is to the rv so be a little cautious on humps or dips. I'm sure you know that with a short bed, you'll want to be cautious on the turn angle ( more backing up than anything else). I can't tell what your clearance is. I like the level hook up and be sure your landing legs are run up before trade. Looks good!

Haveat least 6 inch between bed rail and fiver. Be careful going up sharp driveway that level off at the street. Just watch it !

If you go up on the hitch just be aware your trailer may no longer be level. You will probably end up towing a little nose high. If it's not too much you may be able to get away with it; but if you want to correct the trailer being nose high, you may either flip the axles on the trailer (most are already mounted under the springs nowadays so that may not be an option) or you will need to add spacers under the trailer spring mounts.
