Tail dragging

We had problems getting our 294 in and out of the driveway because of 33' length and the wheels being set close to the middle of the trailer. I had the 3" lift kit added after a couple of outings and it still tows great.
I did add a set of drag wheels on the drag brackets before we had the lift kit installed. The drag wheels are still on but haven't seen any use since the lift.

lift kit

If you don't mind me asking how much does a lift kit cost? Is it basically 3" rubber lifts where the trailer is attached to the frame?

Lift kit

If I recall correctly - It was about $250-$300 including the 2 hours of labor.
It is basically a pair of rectangle shaped blocks of steel and some harden bolts with self locking nuts.
We'Ve happy with the results. Of course, after the lift kit I had to adjust the equalizer hitch to match the new trailer height which the dealer did as part of the work. After the first trip at the new height I moved the wd saddles up 1 bolt hole and it has been a great purchase.

Last year I picked up my SV264. It's my 1st TT and I love it. Tows like a dream with my Yukon 5.3L & tow package. Don't worry about those "V" bars scraping. It happened to me twice. Never any damage to TT. Main thing is to use a weight dist. hitch and get the TT level.
