For us it was USD 150 for the kit plus almost the same again for UPS shipping and brokerage fees.
We do lots of our own mods but this one was outside our comfort zone so we took it to a local truck and trailer suspension shop. The labour was about CAD 600.
Sounds expensive... but before we could not bring our trailer home and now we can. Worth every penny spent from our mod budget!

Why JG, I'm surprised you even have to ask...
Biggest ones so far include the lift discussed here and a power tongue jack. We have a Fan-tastic vent and cover waiting for us at MyUSAddress in Ogdensburg when we return to NY state in September.
Smaller mods - screen door cross bar, table strap (so the table doesn't have to fold to travel) and hanger knob for a garbage bag near the sink.
Next year the big expense will be tires - this trailer is a 2012 and it's still sporting the original rubber. I'd like to add a TMPS too... still researching that. And with the lift we might replace the steps... I really like the Torklift system but it ain't cheap! And we'd like to add a ladder - FR tells me our trailer is prepped for it.
