you want the 5er to have 6" clearance between it and the bed rails. but in doing that you also want to keep the 5er level when hitched.

Raising the trailer away from the the bed won't do anything to keep it off the cab.

Until you try turning in a swale where the front wheels and trailer axles are higher than the rear axle of the TV, trust me on this one.

Just an update, I ended up getting a different slider. The first one got sold before I could pick it up. My current one is a valley power pull 17k. I LOVE it. I was able to back into my ridiculously tight driveway. NO contact made!
