I'm glad your dealer was able to help you out. What did the dealer charge for adding the axle riser kit?

I'll try to get some pics, but not 'till tomorrow. It was $370 installed.

Sorry it's taken so long. before is in prevous post and here's after. I know it's not parked the same place but the clearance around the wheel wells is obvious.

Hi Bikeman911. I have the same trailer, and think I will inquire about getting this mod done as well.

Have you (or anyone else with this riser kit installed) noticed any differences when towing or stability when camping? I imagine I will need to adjust my EQ hitch.

Thanks

I ordered 2013 sv291 with power levelers and am concerned about rippingbthem off and wantedcoax order axle risers based on other posts but they were not listed as a option. maybe due to the suspension changes for '13's

I really don't notice any difference. Maybe 6x6 blocks under the levelers. My dealer told me it wasn't available too! Make them call FR or call them yourself. It's worth it not to have to worry about dragging the rear of the camper off!

Nice! I thought there was a riser kit. And $370 is well worth it. Glad you were able to solve your issue.

And Surveyor does have a nice and real I-beam frame.

[QUOTE= This axle riser kit only works with the torsion axles as the leaf spring suspensions can be flipped. Consult your local Surveyor dealer for this option.[/QUOTE]

Ahh, now I see for new orders on the 2013's the SV models will have the equa-flex LEAF spring suspension, not the torsion axles. Hence no axle riser option!

We have a 264, this option is available from the factor or dealer installed.
Since we back county camp, I have the dealer install the risers before we took deliver, so I can’t comment on towing before, but we have not had any towing issues..

The risers are not available for the following;
Axle Risers (N/A SV300, SV301,
SV302, SV303, SV304 & SV305)
