Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
Is the trailer nose high and the rear skids are hitting the ground?
Or is the nose low and the front a-frame jack is hitting the ground?
Are you using a weight distributing set-up?
Do you have any kind of sway control?
What model, length, and dry weight is your Sunline?
If possible, please post some pictures of the trailer and the tow vehicle.
What would be especially helpful is for us to see the hitch setup as you currently have it. A side view of the trailer hitched to the tow vehicle is really good. Zoom in so that we can see the rear bumper of the tow vehicle and the whole a-frame. A full side view of the trailer hitched up would be good, too. Need to see how the whole trailer sits relative to the hitch. And, we need to see all components of the hitch system while hitched to the trailer, if possible.
If you are just towing on the ball, there are some solutions.
If you have a weight distributing set-up, there are other solutions.
It would also help to know what the ball height is, measured to the top of the ball.
With the trailer disconnected, make sure it's level front-to-rear on a reasonably flat surface, and then measure from the top of coupler (right about where the top of the ball would be) to the ground.
And, please tell us the height from the ground to the bottom of the 2"x2" opening in the receiver on the RAV4.
Until you tell us more about what you have, it's not easy to give you good information. Thanks.
