    Hi y’all!
    What are the things I noticed about my need to be camper is it sits really low to the ground which I guess is pretty normal so I thought we put a lift on our truck so I cannot put a lift on my camper? Has anyone done this before? Looking for all advice.

    Depending on the camper, a lot of people here looking to do the same thing have flipped their axel from on top of the springs to under the springs. Some trailers it is simple, some require a kit. Check around and you will find threads on this process along with before & after pictures.

    Many threads on this topic. Most pups sit way too low for any kind of travel on rough roads. Nice to move up a couple of tire sizes as well

    If you have a dexter torsion axle, they sell a lift kit for that. We added one to our starcraft highwall. It made a huge difference.

    do not literally flip the axle (its has "camber" in it), simply relocate it from above the leaf spring to below the spring. Add the necessary new "perches" to allow this to happen.
