it depends on the height of your trailer and tongue weight you have to allow for the rear end to squat under load when calculating the draw bar drop. That being said unless your trailer has small wheels 8'' or less your best bet is 3'' drop I think 5'' will be way too much drop . ideally you want the trailer tongue level when hitched if it is way out of whack you will have problems controlling the trailer . hope this helps
