    Howdy from northern Az. Picked up a 2003 Coleman Sedona yesterday. Drove 5h into Utah to pick it up. It's in pretty decent shape. Only needing minor tweaks and preventive maintenance. Need to find a spare tire cover, PO bent one of the shepherds hooks putting it back down in a haste so I will have to figure out the repair. PO also Claimed that the electrical was acting up. Have to look into it. It's interesting To get into a popup coming from a 24ft toy hauler. Wife wanted the popup after I sold the toyhauler. Definitely more nimble and easier to get to more secluded spots in the mountains with the pup. I'm towing it for now with my sons 96 bronco as I sold my f350.. first I'd like to do an axle flip to lift the pup a bit. Looking for any tech articles to get started. Thanks for having me.

    Axle flip is easy peasy if you have leaf springs. I have at least two posts referencing my SOA. FYI - you do NOT flip the exle - you simply move it from above the spring top below the spring, which requires new "perches" (preferably) welded to the axle.

    10-4 Anthony, thanks for the reply, I assume the reason is the camber bow on the axle? If so, is tractor supply's a good source for perches? (Have welder, will travel....;-)
