B&W. I have the tri ball 5” drop and it works great for my 37pp truck pulling my boat. You are gonna want the 5” drop if you have a 37pp truck. B&W makes great stuff.

For a 35 Raptor, what's the height of the receiver above the ground? My order is still in transit but trying to do some shopping ahead of time.

you are going to have to wait. plain and simple. once you get the truck you will have to just grab a hitch and connect the trailer. you wil have to load the trailer with all the stuff you plan on taking. tongue weight, trailer hitch height, and raptor sag will determine what drop or rise you need to make it level. and then whatever you plan on carrying in the bed at the same time will also give you sag. amazon and their free returns worked for me. got one and connected trailer and it was too low. flipped it upside down and was still too low. returned it and bought the right size once i saw how much rise i needed.

Gotcha, that makes perfect sense.

I assume when you say camper you’re referring to a travel trailer not an over the cab truck squatter.

I highly recommend looking into a load distributing hitch. With as loose as our suspension is, a little bit of weight shift while breaking can get very sporty very quick. Weight distribution hitches keep the raptor very level.

I have a husky distribution hitch for my travel trailer and the only squat I get is from bed weight. Second this recommendation.
