I put a couple pieces of 1/2" wood under the kickstand to hold the bike upright. I had 12 1/2" to the top of the Bushtec v.2 ball. Suspension setting is probably around 12 to 15.

12 inches to the ball center is a good number. The XTc model of the Tailwind has an adjustable draw bar height.

On most trailers, it is simply esthetics within a reasonable range, if the wheels remain vertical during the suspension travel.
