I have a 2" taller spacer and 16" wheels/tires on my trailer so I sit higher than a stock rig does.
I haven't lost anything yet, but then again the dunes don't have big rocks or anything.

Mine is stock height but I don't take mine offroad much. Nary a problem. Makes it easy to get to things though.

I've known a few folks that have had some damage to their undercarriage. Some of the TH's have stuff hanging pretty low. I also know a few folks have modified their piping so it didn't hang so low.

That was one of the features that I like about Patio Haulers. All the plumbing is up inside the underbelly, including the dump valves, and the underbelly is enclosed with wood pannels.

Since I flipped axles, I'm pretty high off the ground anyway.
