Our drive is a little steep @ where it ties into the curb and it drags on the triangle things @ the back of the trailer

A spacer will make it lower not taller.

Getting back to the original posters question. No, you cannot flip the axle(flipping axle, figure of speech), because your trailer has a torsion suspension, but your can change the ride hight for more ground clearance.

And, NO, you will not have a problem(ride problems, handling problems) with up to 4" of increased hight, so long as the hitch is adjusted respectively.
Perfect answer...

There is a Lift Kit available from Forest River. I'm trying to get information on the kit number(s). When I do, I'll post it here.

Hi, I had the same problem of dragging my trailer rear end trying to back up the driveway. I had to call a paving company to make a more gental approach to my awning off of the street. They did a great job. No more problem with about 4 inches to spare on my 292 sandpiper. That took care of two problems with the other that I needed to recoat my whole driveway anyway. Jiffy
