Hello everyone, I need a new drawbar to tow our Surfside, but I'm away from home right now. I'm wondering if anyone knows the correct/recommended height for the hitch ball for this model. I guess it would be the same for a Trillium (?)
Any help is appreciated.

I would think the answer to that would have a lot to do with how the particular trailer rides level, condition of axle, etc. For instance most Scamps are 18", mine however is 21-1/4" because of 15" tires and 45 degree down axle. So the term "recommended" may not apply. You really need to level the trailer and measure the height at the coupler.

Thank you Donna, I just happen to be on the road (without my Surfside) and was hoping on picking up the correct draw bar on the way home. I guess I will get better results by measuring it myself when I get home.
Thanks again.
