Anyone possibly know what drop hitch height I need?

I am heading 180 miles on Tuesday, May 28, to go and pick up my boat. Problem is, I have no idea what drop I need for my trailer. I know how to figure it out, but unfortunately I am unable to measure the distance from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler. The boat is a 14' C-Lark sailing dinghy. The trailer is a Snowco trailer. If anybody has a Snowco trailer for a boat this size and can give me a measurement with the trailer sitting level, it would greatly help.


I am using a 2010 Jeep Commander. I just installed a Curt 13414, 2" class III receiver and wiring harness today and have the correct 1 7/8" ball for the trailer, but I am not sure of the hitch drop height. The distance from the ground to the top of the receiver tube opening is about 6" and 13/16"
