    I just bought a 2012 Nissan Titan CC 4x4 and the receiver hitch is up there in the air stock. The A-Liner has a high hitch also but seem to not find the right receiver that will tow level. Would you tow with the tongue pointing up or pointing down. Would you put the ball lower than level or higher than level. We are talking about an 1 1/2" SWAG either way.

    If you can't get it level then it's better to be a little low than high. If high then wind can catch the under side of the camper and cause sway.

    Dont think your going to have much trouble with sway on your tow vehicle. We pulled a Aliner last year using an old Grand Marquis and was all over the road. Bought the Isuzu Rodeo and it tows a straight as an arrow. We are getting ready for 7000 miles this summer. We found a slight bit down was better than up, but with your tow vehicle, you will have no problem. Stiff suspension is the key. John

    I have an adjustable draw bar with set holes every 1" . never had an issue finding a towing level within 3/4" up or down as close to level as possible.
