Measure it. One way is a 2x4 with a level on the high RV area and measure to ground.

Measure as per above with it hooked up to your truck. On a typical DRV, you will find them generally 13'-3" to 13'-6".

They are all different when hooked up to back under... YOU NEED to measure to get the proper answer

Yes, measure it, but just looking online, at that model 13' 1". You will have to sand 1/4 inch off that header! [emoticon]

Raise the roof if you are the owner.

We have a 2015, same model. Your trailer is at least 13' 2", pretty much guaranty that's the minimum. We had 2" risers put on two years after getting our trailer due to the difference in bed height of our new (than) truck. Our trailer sits closer to 13" 4" now. DON'T guess, like others have said take a straight edge and level and measure to be sure, you don't want to find out the hard way! [emoticon]

This is how it should be done. BTW this is NOT our trailer!
