Air bags on your TH

I have a Stealth 2715. I just moved into a new house and have RV parking on the side. My driveway has a steep incline and I had to use my leveling boards, just some 2X8's, to raise the tires in order to get it into the parking spot. It wasn't that bad, just an inconvenience and I will have to use the boards to remove it too. Was thinking about maybe getting some airbags on the trailer axles to raise it about 4 inches or flipping the axles. Looking for some insight. Click image for larger version

could you lower the tongue enough to get it in and out? Maybe with a really low drop ball mount and using it just for getting in and out of the driveway?

I lowered the tongue as low as I could. I emptied my airbags too. The problem with a drop down hitch is that the TH would clear but then the hitch would drag until the TV tires start to go up the incline.

Any fabrication shop or trailer repair shop can install new spring perches so that the axle tubes will be under the springs. By doing this it will raise the chassis so you will also adjust your hitch to match the lift.
The flip kits are usually about 35 bucks an axle and easily done.



Here's a little do it yourself article.
