Class C hitch high for auto tow bar

We just went from a Class A to a Class C Fleetwood on the Sprinter Chassis. The tow bar receiver is 6-8 inches higher than the car tow bracket making an angle down to the car. This seems to make for a harsh and noisy tow. Is there a hitch adapter or something to drop the hitch with a receiver for the tow bar? Thanking you in advance.

They make drop hitches in all sizes 2-4-6-8" drops.
Buy the one with the proper drop.

I also had an ill handling toad and using a drop hitch did improve the situation.
