Exclamation The Level Up leveling system is hydraulic only!

Actually, the 312BHX frame is a 10" I-Beam construction -- same as full sized non-eXtraLite Wildcats. However, the eXtraLite line uses electric slide rooms and front landing gear, so there isn't an onboard hydraulic system for Level Up to take advantage of. The Level Up leveling system is hydraulic only.

All of our direct competitors use electric slide rooms and front landing gear, which is why they can't and don't offer this feature!

Dealers charge differently for options -- your best bet is to call your local Wildcat dealer for a price. I believe the MSRP on this option is close to $3000.

Here's the manufacturers info on Level Up -- I believe they're got some aftermarket pricing info at this page:
Level Up Automatic 5th Wheel Leveling

We've had a number of retail calls on this topic lately (with some of them even quoting information they'd read here!) and so I wanted to restate that the Level Up auto-leveling system is NOT AVAILABLE on the eXtraLite line.

I'd be more than happy to let our management know if there's a strong consumer demand for leveling systems on the smaller and lighter fifth wheels -- I think it's probably a no-brainer to most people. The question then goes to: what price are you willing to pay? Having used the system, my personal preference is to always have it...

See page 21 of this handy Lippert Components manual for more info on the Level Up system:

Couldn't agree with you more. We love the leveling system...now that it works correctly. We have attracted a few neighbors to inquire what it is. Just hit the button to auto level and get on with the next task to setup camp. My how spoiled we are! Camper still has a bit of movement, but this is a leveling system, not a stabilizing system so I'm ok with that.
