Base plate attachment height

I am going to be towing a 2015 Equinox behind my Sightseer.

Is there a difference in attachment point height between the different brands of base plates that will allow me to use a shorter drop hitch when I finish the full installation? When I tow my trailer the drop hitch drags too often and I would like to keep things as high as possible.

Thanks,
Mike

Mike I know that Roadmaster shows the tow bracket height on different toads and think BlueOx would also.

Another option is to use a "skid roller" to protect the hitch. Mine has saved me several times.

If the hitch is dragging maybe you have too much of a drop. On one trailer I towed I had to have a rise to get the proper hitching height.
