    I say measure from your hitch to the ground. Most trailers I have seen have a hitch height of about 18" from the ground. Subtract that from your measurment and that will give you your drop amount.

    Every trailer is different. Measure from the top of your reciever hole to the ground. Then level the trailet and measure from the bottom of the tounge to the ground. The difference will be how much drop you need. My car trailer is a mere 12" off the ground, requiring a 6" drop for my stock height 2500 sub. While my camper is 20" off the ground requiring a 2" rise.
