I found this info on the roadmaster web site. It is for motor home mounted tow bars. I thought the toad should never be higher than the motor home, so I found this interesting.

"Three inches above level or four inches below level is the SAFE ZONE for motorhome-mounted tow bars. Car-mounted tow bars must be absolutely level."

To; PADRIVER;

There have been many postings on heights.

The bar between motorhome and toad should be as level as possible and not more than 4 inches either way if not level.

Use a drop receiver to level.

I almost lost my toad on the NY thruway last year because base-plate was hanging by one tread on an all but stripped bolt. The toad would have stopped, break-away on Brake Buddy, but I don't think those behind it could have avoided hitting it.

When you stop and think , WHY LEVEL??

When your braking moho, the nose dives and the rear lifts...-- the toad front dives, the moho lifts and WOW, are we stretching fittings?? No, they give.

Hope this info helps.
