Hello all! Long time no post, I just wanted to ask a question of all of you. I just ordered a 6" drop ball mount to use with my Ford Explorer towing a 1969 Starflyte. I previously had a 1" drop ball mount I would use with a 1964 Alladdin, and continued to use it with my Shasta, but it always had the trailer tongue riding way too high. Other than piece of mind, and more clearance for the rear bumper, what benefits are there to having your trailer ride down the road level? Tire wear, fuel consumption are a few obvious things I can think of (how much will these be affected?), but are there any other things? BTW is anybody going to the XXX rally in Issaquah WA Cinco de Mayo weekend? It was a lot of fun last year, and I can't wait to get the Shasta out for the weekend. As always thanks so much to everyone! This site has been so valuable while rebuilding our trailer.
