I just purchased a used 2010 Salem cruise lite 17exl ( I believe similar to wildwood 17exl). I am now noticing that the tire clearance between the top or the tire and wheel well is less than 2". The space between the axle and the frame is similar, about 2". Does not seem like enough room for suspension travel. Is this normal on this trailer? Is there anyone out there with a similar trailer? If so curious what is your experience if this is a problem? Not sure I like it so I am thinking of flipping the axle.
Warfrat48 , Coil springs no. Leaf springs or torsion axles as llr says yes.
When I say frame clearance I mean from the top of the axle to the bottom of the frame. Great question on checking for rub marks. Not sure why I did not check. I will have to check when I get home. Thanks
