Nose High vs Bed Clearance

Had a Reese Goosebox installed today.

Tell me your opinion here.

Am I too high in the front?

Trailer is 44' long, which makes a difference.

Frame bottom to ground in rear: 22.25"

Frame bottom to ground in front: 26"

Bottom of gooseneck to top of truck bed rail: 9"

Think I am GTG or do I need to drop the Reese down a click?

Go ahead and drop your nose down. 6 or 7 inches is adequate for bed clearance.

2” drop should give 7” clearance and get you close to level.

While you may be good, I'd drop the front a bit more. Nine inches clearance not really needed. Six usually okay, seven is great, most cases.

A picture would help us. Ideally you are level to very slightly nose high…very slightly.
