Question Giving trailer a lift ??


Do they make kits to raise the height on a travel trailer? My family's Roo M232 is giving me a little bit of a hard time clearing my driveway since its a bit up a uphill and because I will also like it to ride a little bit higher.

When we purchase our unit we had the dealer flip the springs.

Never enough camping!!

if you do raise the trailer it will change the center of gravity and will effect the way the trailer will handle when towing.

The Roo has torsion axles so the only way to lift them is to install a length of square or rectangular steel tubing spacer block between the camper frame and the axle mounting. Cross braces between the spacer blocks should also be installed.

Have you tried removing your W/D bars before backing up the may be enough change for the rear of the camper to clear.

Dave's right, you can't "flip" a torsion axle.
many have gone to a RV shop and had the spacers installed, especially on Jayco Hybrids, which are famous for being too low.

Well I've only backed it up only once to the side of my drivve way since I bought it, havent gone camping in her yet. So I didnt have the W/D on, just regular hitch & ball. It is torsion axle like you guys said, and thanks for the suggestion i will contact the Dodds RV and inquire about getting some spacer installed, that sounds like a good idea. Thanks all for your responses.
