SV 294 Lift Kit

Anyone installed one or does anyone know what they cost?


Thanks

There are several people that have ordered them and IIRC they weren't very expensive. It's really just a 2"x3" section of rectangular heavy walled tubing they attach between the frame and axle flange. Contact your dealer about the cost and installation.

I also have a SV294 and I had the lift kit installed today. I ordered the lift kit from Forest Rivers and it cost about $220 (shipping included). I took my RV to a local RV dealer and I paid $112 (it took them about an hour) to have the kit installed. Prior to installing this kit, I could not get my RV into my drive way. After installing the kit, my RV cleared my drive way by about 2 inches.

I am very pleased with this kit so please email me if additional information is required.

I have a SV 294 also and I like the low height especially for towing. I am curios though how did it effect the towability? Could you notice a difference?

As I posted in another thread, I had the lift kit installed on my 294, had to adjust my equalizer hitch and it pulls great.

I got the riser kit installed on my 2012 SV264. I did not notice any difference with towing. I did adjust the hitch ball up to compensate for the lift.

I had some close calls with the poor cleance to dump valves, and scrapped the rear stabs once or twice before the lift. I definitely recommend the lift, especially if you camp in places with uneven camp sites. The last thing I need is a broken black valve pulling out of a campsite.

Surveyor installed the kit free of charge when my trailer was at the factory for other warranty repairs out of good will. But I think they stated the cost was approx $300 installed IIRC.

Do you happen to have the part #? I have a work order and the instructions for surveyor riser but can't find the part number. Trying to help another surveyor owner out but can't find the part number.
Thanks

SV 294 Lift Kit

I had it installed already 4+ yrs ago. When I was out camping this weekend, I was approached by another surveyor owner who asked about my riser kit. I'd like to send him the part number so he can install (and be able to park in his driveway).
