Picked up our new 2015 XLR

This past Friday and we used over the weekend, it was really hard to leave the camper at all!!! Loving every single detail about it, no issues! Picked up like 42 channels where we located and had a fantastic weekend.

Congrats! Mine has been at a dealer since Tuesday getting the heavier axles installed; I miss her already.

Wolfwhistle, did they tell you how much higher it would ride with the heavier suspension? The height is already 11'6", will it push us into the 12' range? Of course loaded it will be back down.

Are you getting newer axles, or just heavier suspension,
will it be much taller off the wheels, how much do they quote you for this?
Trying to see if I should do this, mine drags at rear in spots.

thanks for any info

Hey guys... FR sent the dealer, 5200# axles, springs and equalizers. All other components will move over; such as wheels and tires, brakes and hardware. I was told it would be taller, but how much exactly, I don't know.
I hoping the change will not raise it more than 2 inches. The brochures I've read says a 29HFS should be 11' 2" tall.

It is a factory safety recall, so no charge.

Do you mean (rebel) it drags on steep drives or entrances? I haven't had mine drag in the short time I've owned it... pulled it about 4K miles... into Canada, Up state NY, PA, MD, Va, etc. Raising it up on the springs, certainly will help but not eliminate this issue.

You could drop the front down a bit, giving it a more front end lower attitude... which you would want it to be mildly front end low normally; and / or get some rollers for the rear... to prevent damage to the unit. Can you tell if your axles hit the frame?
