I had to remove the spacers on my F250 to line up to our previous unit.
But I had additional Spring plies preventing the truck to drop to low.
The F350 is an F250 with raised springs by adding taller spacers. It allows additional spring flex while keeping the drive line in proper lignememt.
To me the truck is high empty but will drop enough the level the unit.
To me a F350 is actually false hope if one thinks it's better then the F250. Beware of the application.

Found another piece of the puzzle yesterday... We looked at some other mfg 5ers and their overhang sat higher (63" or so from ground). Turns out the Forest River has four steps going up to the bedroom where the other units we looked at had three steps going up and a fourth along side the bed allowing the overhang to sit higher up! (...I think the only reason I even noticed it was I kept tripping over it...). Mystery solved, (maybe ; )
