I've got extra risers for sale (factory new with hardware and instruction sheet) for Lippert axles. The post is on the classified page. Photos of my installation plus some others (plus an explanation of how I ended up with additional riser kits) is on the mods page. Search "axles risers" or "OEM lift kit" to see th posts. The installation is pretty simple.

Update on my riser kit for my TT. The parts were ordered today, at a cost of $150, and are expected to be delivered at the dealer this Thursday. I will be taking the TT out of winter storage in my backyard to bring up to the dealer on Saturday for the install. They have estimated a cost of $400 for the install. With tandems I have no interest in doing this myself. While it is there they are going to be checking out a cut powerfeed wire that I found that powers the hot water heater, and also a slow draining grey water tank. When I get the TT back I will post pics of the finshed product. The estimated rise will be 4". Lets hope that is enough to stop me from scraping when backing in my driveway.

I received the riser kits from Rockwood / Forest River for my Windjammer. I installed the kits myself it only took a few hours. Just jack the trailer up so tires are about 4-6" off the ground and set it on jack stands. Remove the tires / wheels. Loosen all of the fasteners to allow the axle assemblies to swing down one side at a time. Use a floor jack under the axles to lower and raise them while installing the riser kits. Tighten all fasteners to snug than torque them after the trailer weight is loaded with tires on the ground. The additional clearance between tires and wheel wells and additional ground clearance is awesome! This was a warranty claim just an FYI. They also sent me 4 new tires as mine were rubbing the deck under the wheel wells.

Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite 5th wheel with torsion suspension

I know this subject has been discussed but I still need some advice/direction.

I have the Rockwood Signature Lite 5th wheel with torsion suspension. I need to lit the body for more clearance. I went to the dealer to ask them to provide a quote and their service guy had no clue. I had to even tell him about this forum and that riser kits exist.


Since they are less than capable, who and how can I contact the factory or individual where I can order a riser kit?

Thanks in advance

Riverton, WY

I would like to raise my Coachmen 5th wheel too. I need to raise hitch for rail clearance, but want to keep trailer level also.

Sailingerie, what kind of axles do you have. We have a 2012 V Lite W30FKSS, and have AL-KO torsion flex axles. We have never had any problems with the tires rubbing the wheel wells, but after reading some of the horror stories, decided to check our tire clearance before heading out this spring. We found we only have between 1 1/4 inches and 1 3/4 inches clearance between the tires and the deck above the tires. From what I have read, we should be seeing a minimum of 2 inches with 3 inches preferred. We are out of warranty, but could you share your Forest River contact for getting the riser kits so we can find out if we indeed need to add them and be sure we get the correct kits?
