The only thing this would do is make the tongue of your trailer sit a little lower.

Hope this makes sense and I didn't get it backwards. LOL

Bill does your's already have a serious slope to it? Mine does. I wonder if they changed them over the years.

Is mine normal and did the one you use have that same slope to it.
Hi Carol.
I'm not sure I know what slope you mean. The stock coupler on my Scamp was bent when the previous owner drove off with the jack partially down.
When I had the new coupler installed, it didn't seem to affect the level of the trailer when hitched (I didn't change the drawbar) so I don't think there was much difference.
I sold the Scamp, so this is the only picture I have of the coupler (If I ever replace the coupler on our Escape, I'll use a Bulldog).
