hitch height.

hello all. anyone able to tell me the hitch height on a level 30 foot double axle Dutchmen? I just bought one (its two hours away) and I forgot to measure for my hitch. I don't pick it up until after winter (end of April) but need this measurement so I know which adjustable hitch bar to buy.
for reference, I have a 2018 3010BHDS

thanks!!

Call the dealer or owner and ask them to measure it.

mine is 22" but you will need to measure it to be sure. If you get the adjustable, let them put it on and mount the trailer for you.

Ours is also at about 22".



Adjustable hitch bar means exactly that. They are adjustable. We have this for our 27 footer:

It has quite a bit of adjustment for height. And you can get "extra" parts for more difficult heights.


Good luck!

thanks for the replies everyone!

I was looking at the Equilizer, but I really like the sway bars with "proactive" sway control. thinking of this one.

I will call the dealer to verify height. I will need something like this then.

I'm going to be no help at all and tell you "It depends". :-)

My 2015 Rubicon toyhauler sits level at 20.5" but can vary by at least a couple of inches depending on load in the back and whether the grey/black/fresh tanks are full or empty. Anywhere between 20 and 23" will get you in the ballpark but I'd HIGHLY recommend getting airbags fitted for fine-tuning the ride. They make a hell of a difference.
