Hitch Drop for tow dolly

Recommended Posts

Very confusing looking this up, does this seem right:

Measure from top of MH receiver tube to ground (A)

With tongue of tow dolly leveled, measure from bottom of coupler to ground (B)

B - A=C

If C is negative I need a drop, if C is positive I need a rise.

I know it will be negative.

Does that calculation sound about right?

I never did any fancy calculation.😁 Just set mine up so the tow dolly was mostly levell. When braking you don't want to have it pushing up or down. I think I needed a 10" drop.  One thing to keep in mind when you have the drop in place it will make it easier to drag the drop on driveways. or any transition to a parking lot/road.

I’ll have to hitch up and load at the road as the driveway goes down hill at a slight decline. Have to back MH down.  I’m moving the MH to the driveway this weekend so I will do the measurements just to see if it’s close.
