Towing with a 4 x4 dodge dually

Has anyone pulled their 39mb with a 4wd. dodge dually? And if so how much distance is between the top of the truck bed rails and the rv ? I have ordered a 2022 dodge rom 3500 dually 4x4 and it sites at 59 inches from the ground up to the top of the tail gate. my RD sites at 58 inches when level on the ground. I did hook it up to my fiends truck a 4x4 and my RW sat a quarter inch high on the front ( i used a 4ft, level on the frame) will this put too much weight on one axel?

1" front to back on the trailer with standard spring suspension will be fine. Morride IS should be flat as possible. The bed rails on trucks is getting to high for full profile trailer and mid height AC units. we are at 13'-5" with ours after IS upgrade.

The distance from the bottom of the trailer to the bed rails will depend on your hitch setup. Most are adjustable some. The bed of the the truck will also lower some when hooked up.

If you are only highway towing it can be closer, if you plan to boondock and wander into the undeveloped areas, a little higher is better, mine is at 6in, as I do tend to go off the beaten path more than developed camping areas. as it happens, this is a level towing position as well.
