MH hitch height

I don't have my MH here to check since it's at the dealer getting a multitude of problems fixed but, I plan on towing a honda fit with a 13 1/2 in. height at the base plate and a Thor Astoria MH that I was told had a 15 in. tow reciever height. Now, when the air suspension is activated, how much higher will the hitch be? I figure I need a two inch drop to get everything level. Any input would help.

Was the 15" height measured with the air system up or down? If it was a factory spec quote, I would assume it meant with the system inflated for normal travel.

I would assume the same thing as Gary; but if you're within 2" of level, you're probably close enough. Most tow bar manufacturers recommend you be within 4" of level. See the sticky at the top of this forum called "Tow Bar Angle and Height Difference."
