Measurement needed

Can someone help me with the measurement from the bottom of the King Pin plate to the ground when the trailer is sitting level. Preferably one with the Trail-Air pin box.

Thanks,
Ron

Mine is sitting in my shop so the concrete floor is level and it is at 45". Keep in mind this number will change based on the slope of the ground.

I just want to make sure I understand... With your trailer level in your garage (not raised in the front like to hook it up) From the bottom of the pin box plate (where it sits on the fifth wheel plate in your truck) that measurement is 45" from the ground... Correct?

That is correct.

Thanks Dave,

Do you have the air pin box or the non air?

If it's the air pin are you measuring from the nose of the pin box to the ground? The reason I ask is they slope down in the front when they are not hooked up.

Thanks,
Ron

I have the Trailair pinbox which has the air bag. I'm measuring from the side near the middle grease zerk, which is about even with the kingpin.

Can I ask why you need this measurement? For me I feel this can change 1, 2,or 3" with the ground and the unit showing level.

Wayne,

I have a custom lowered truck and we are picking up our new trailer Friday and I wanted to set the fifth wheel hitch height in the ball park before we went to pick it up. The dealer moved the pin box to it's lowest setting but when I called to ask for the measurement I was told 50" which didn't seam possible so I wanted to verify.

Ron

Thanks Ron. I was just trying to understand why you needed that measurement.
