That is a great idea! I would have never thought of doing that.
Measuring for a new drop hitch tonight.....28" to the top of the ball while the trailer is level!
That'l do mate... That'l do. Looks good regardless of decorative wheels. Beef up the spring mounts and drawbar. Happy trails
Hello out there...yes, I realize this thread is older than...well, anyway,
just wanted to know how the lift has worked out for you off pavement.
By the looks of our sig line, you've replaced the pup altogether since then. Just interested in your experience as i'm researching for a future off pavement pup now that the family is growing and stretching the limits of my 4x4 mid sized van.
Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.
Noticed the inactivity of this thread, but thought I would give my input. I have a Starcraft Meteor which has the torsion bar suspension. I ended up putting a subframe under the main frame and remounted the suspension. The subframe will hold a fresh water and grey tank in the future. I also pick up new wheels and tires; 205/65-10. Have had the lift for over 2 years and works great so far. Still need to install a new step though. Decided I wasn't going to do any rockcrawling with the trailer, so the subframe lift is perfect. The subframe is made using 8" C channel.
What brand of tires are those?
They are Load-Star. Got the set of Rim/Tires from eTrailer couple weeks ago. Picture was taken just before the maiden voyage.
Love your modification. Should work just fine. I love the location of your air conditioner, where is the battery and propane tank located at ?
Forgot about this thread!
4XMetor, I like the lift you have done on your Starcraft. I have also lifted my Starcraft StarLite probably 7 inches or so, and am looking for new wheels & tires that will have more grip in the dirt etc.
Did you have to modify anything (other than the lift) to fit those tires?
