That's awesome!! Glad you enjoyed it! Just a small rinky dink town in the middle of CO. It's a comical place to live. Last weeks event: We have one grocery store within a 40 mile radius. The Credit/Debit functionality decided to go out at 5PM. Line at the ATM was wrapped up and down aisles. It's for sure not easy in the winter but working from home is

Jimmy N. Just keep in mind that the torsion axles on your trailer won't like it if the trailer isn't level.

scj64 I used to constantly worry about banging my top rails with my 18 SRW as it sat almost 3 higher than this truck.
I may adjust my gooseneck hitch down a hole to give me a little peace of mind after looking at the pictures a little closer. An extra 1 1/2 between the truck and trailer will help prevent the two from kissing.

That sure looks somewhat familiar.

This setup would not have worked where we used to live, due to some severe angles when entering the main road.

scj64 This is my ‘19 3500 4x4 with auto level and my 2018 Sundowner Charter SE.

I would buy the Kelderman reverse level air bag kit. I’ve used Kelderman products for a few years and never an issue.

I reversed leveled my 2018 3500 4x4 SRW w/leafs to haul the same trailer.

I live in Monument if you need help figuring things out with your new truck.

Ryan2589 I have a 2018 Ram 2500 and have the same issue with my Sooner gooseneck trailer. It is not as severe as yours though, but my trailer is nose high. One solution I am looking into is a "reverse level" from Kelderman. It is a little pricey, but seems to have some other advantages too. May be worth contacting Kelderman and see if they have any solutions for the 2019 Ram.

UFLBret Hi CLB, i also have a 2019 4x4 crew cab, I just got a B&W turnover ball gooseneck installed and after reading your initial post was a little concerned about hauling the trailer i typically borrow from my aunt. It's a early 2000's Featherlite 3-horse gooseneck with tack room. I went over to her house this saturday and picked it up and it hauled just fine. It is not perfectly level front to back but it's not too far off and i didn't even adjust the neck from my 2016 F250 super duty. It's not the end of the world if it's not perfectly level. Ideal yes, necessary, no. I think you are overthinking this whole thing. Once you load a couple 1,200 lb horses in it there will be even more weight on the neck.
