Level the trailer... measure from ground to bottom of king pin plate (not the king pin itself)... tell us that measurement...

I'm picking our Cougar 24RDS this Friday (April 9th), and I'm hoping to go camping this weekend with it (weather permitting).

My tow vehicle is a 2019 RAM 2500 diesel short bed, with factory air bags (auto level).

Due to absolutely lack of choices here where I live, I had to go with the Reese Goose Box for hitching. I do have a B&W goose ball installed.

Can't Wait!

Going to be towing our new 24RDS with a 2016 Ford F350 diesel, crew cab, long bed. Had a 2016 RAM 2500 diesel, crew cab, 6'4" bed but its cargo capacity (2173lbs) was not enough. Traded it for the Ford. Now have plenty of capacity (3180lbs) and no short bed to deal with. Trailer is on order with tentative delivery date of mid May.
