[RC] GN Trailer Truck Clearance - Roger Rittenhouse

Went though all this when I got my rig. I found the information on a
Trailer site and I cant find it any more.
The distance  WHEN on  LEVEL ground , between the bed rail and the GN
bottom rails should be 8 to 10 inches.
The trailer should be slightly higher- off level - I have a degree gauge on
my trailer, I set it for 1 degree up 

So far I have not come close to hitting.
I think 6 inches is way too close.

SNIP post from Bob
I just got a new Ford F-250 4x4 with the 6.0 diesel engine and feel very
fortunate.  I have a Sundowner Valuelite 3 horse, slant, gooseneck trailer.
When I hook the trailer to the truck the trailer is very high in front and
no where near level.  I would lower the trailer front end but their is only
about 6" of clearance between the bottom of the trailer and the top of the
truck side rails.  I can't find anything that will tell me what is the
smallest distance between the top of the truck and the bottom of the
trailer where I can operate without them ever hitting each other.  Also,
how close to level should the trailer be?  I'd appreciate your thoughts.
