Tire clearance

I have a palomini 180FB with very little clearance between the 14" tires and the wheel well. Is there some product or procedure for raising the frame 1 or 2 inches above the axel?

If your trailer suspension is leaf springs and the axle perch is on top of the springs, there is a common mod called an axle flip that will add 2-3 inches or clearance.

If your axles are springs are already below the springs it should be a fairly simple matter to have a spacer made.

We had our torsion axle travel trailer lifted recently with the help of a kit supplied by Forest River and a local suspension shop. See Mods - Trailer lift.
