    I started a thread a while back with my concerns on towing with a high clearance rear bumper. At this point I have my high clearance rear bumper on and it seems to be out of my reach to haul a travel trailer.

    I was wondering if anyone has pics of their high clearance rear bumper hauling a travel trailer?

    My trailer has around 14'' of tongue height, which is really low! Now I'm told that typically tongue heights nowadays are around 18''. So my thinking is if get a newer trailer and do a spring over axle swap(5''-6'' in height so I'm told) I should be really close to level. Any input? Pics?

    Yeah you know I already did that, in fact I purchased the biggest one they make at the camper dealer. So after I figured that out I took some measurements from my truck to my uncles camper and had a custom one made at 13'' drop, still because the camper sits so low I'm off around 8'' I believe. However that is for a sway bar/weight distribution hitch.
