What Size Drop Hitch do I need?

This is typically the big question and can vary depending on your trailer. Ideally, you want your trailer to sit behind your vehicle as level as possible when connected. The easiest way to figure this out is to measure the difference from the bottom of the trailer tongue(level) to the inside bottom of your hitch. The difference is the approximate drop you should try to get close to.

If you are not sure of your trailer height, then 15-17" off the ground is an average height for most trailers to use. Again, measure tow vehicles hitch opening. Then the appropriate drop is the difference between that and approximately 16". For example, if your vehicle measures 19.5", then go with a 4" drop, that gets you close to the middle between 15" and 17".
