The 4 foot gates often have that issue. So when I had my first trailer built I had the gate made 4.5 feet long and had 4 inch drop axles. Now I wouldn't think twice id get a 5 foot gate every time. The hitch can help but there is only so high you want to take that because it does make the trailer look ridiculous when its tilted 10 degrees as you drive down the road. And you can start scraping the back of the trailer as you drive on inclines. The longer the trailer the worse this gets my longest one is 25 ft total length and if its not level that becomes an big issue. The correct way would be to extend the gate or replace it but its you choice hell you can even put a few blocks of wood under it and it will change the angle.
