Hi: All... I have been reading on some other forums, if you can believe all you read, but pic's. don't lie. Ford is experiencing a significant number of bent frames on several Raptor pickups. Granted some of them are used "Off road" but that's what they're advertised as being able to do!!!
The frame bends so the gap between the cab and box below the rear window becomes wider at the top and narrower at the bottom. I'm sorry I don't have the c'puter skills to transfer a picture!!!
I wonder what this condition may hold for those towing with new F150s of any model???

Floyd, it's 18" to the top of the ball: Scamp Travel Trailers: 13 Foot Specifications of course it says approximately... so I guess 16" is also approximately

Hitch height: approx. 18"
