I towed a 95 5th wheel with my F250 and the front was a bit high on a 33ft unit. Removed the 2 in spacer due to the rear being still tail high with the 5th wheel hooked.
The truck and trailer should be in line, the front of the box cannot have more clearance then the rear so mine was 7 up front and 5 in at back, so lowering the truck worked fine. But without the spacer I had to watch the drive line but it never vibrated, as in the new 99 model year there was a kit to lower the rear of trucks to suit 90's trailers. That's the reason I have a F250 and not a F350 SRW.
I put back the spacers for the new 2009 and the height is perfect.
Canadian manufacture Glendale had Titaniums in the early 2000 with cab over bedroom that shorten the trailers by 5 feet. Might be best for less lenght for towing tripple
