Bullet Crossfire 1900RD Hitch Height?

Hi all. I am a few weeks away from the delivery of a 2018 Bullet Crossfire 1900RD. I will be pulling it with a 2018 Honda Ridgeline, and using an Eaz-Lift Trekker 6000/600 Weight Distribution Hitch.

The Ridgeline's unloaded top-of-receiver height is 19.5". In order to ensure that the adjustable range of the WDH is appropriate, I need to know the unloaded hitch height (bottom or top) of a recent year 1900RD. The TT dealer doesn't have a 1900RD on site, and Keystone customer service repeats "we don't have that information" when I call into them.

Does anyone have a relatively unloaded level 1900RD that they can measure it's hitch height on? Sure would appreciate it.

You'll recognize my wife and I driving into the sunset with "Cyril" scrolled across the rear of the 1900RD!

Thanks.

You are not getting the WD hitch from the dealer?

The dealer carries the Husky Center Line TS but I prefer the Trekker.

Is there a reason the dealer wont do it at time of delivery? I could see a .5hr charge being reasonable.

Thanks for your response. As it turns out, the dealer or I may order the Trekker WD Hitch. And the dealer or I may install it. But, whichever way we go, we must still make sure our order includes the correct Trekker shank because the dealer doesn't stock Trekker shanks. If we get it wrong, I'm a 5-hour round trip back to him, some re-order + delivery days later. We could wait for the 1900RD to show up at the dealer's lot and then order the Trekker, but I'm trying to pick up the 1900RD fairly close to its arrival date.

So, it'll be either Trekker's standard-height-range shank, or Trekker's long-height-range shank. I can determine which shank if someone can tell me the hitch height of a relatively unloaded level 1900RD. It should be around 23" to the top of the receiver. Anyone have a recent-year 1900RD to measure this?

Thanks

You can call CAMCO at 1-800-334-2004 and ask what is range of drop and rise of there standard shank. Tell them what vehicle you have and what you or pulling and I bet they could answer your questions if they have done any testing. I would measure the center of my receiver on level ground and have the infro handy.

Thank you. I called Camco but they know nothing about Keystone hitch heights. Anyone have a 1900RD that they can measure the hitch height on?

I have a 2018 1900R. Sitting level it is about 24 inches to top of the coupler. The top of the receiver on my Jeep sits 20 inches from the ground and my WDH has a 8 inch drop/rise shank, but 4 inch would be enough.

Excellent! Thank you. Will I be seeing you driving into the sunset as well LabRat?

This is a great next chapter - we plan to hike, bike and kayak every state, national and provincial park across North America before someone starts throwing dirt onto me. I grew up with Lake Superior wind in my nostrils.

I have a 2017 Bullet Crossfire 1900RD. I don't use a WD hitch but you may need one with the IRS of a ridgeline. I can measure the height as it sits level when I get home. My trailer if lifted with bigger tires though so I may not be much help.
