    As long as it fits, why not?

    I finally got around to doing this myself. It was really pretty simple. I think the hardest part was explaining the process to my father in law that helped me out and loaned me some tools. I haven't pulled it anywhere yet except moving it around the yard to work on it due to needing some work on my TV that I found out while working on this. But it looks good sitting there. It is much more level and I think I'm going to look into bigger wheels and/or tires to increase the clearance just a bit more. I took a few pics but they won't upload here. Says the files are too big.

    Good deal. Told you it wasn't that difficult.

    We did a 2.5 inch lift using hitch receiver tube.

    Hoping to revive this post and get some input. I have a 2011 Starcraft Centennial 3612 that sits really low. It scrapes the driveway when backing and can’t fit a grey water tank under it as the bottom of the outlet for the sink is only 8.5” from the ground. The 2 5/8” lift offered by dexter won’t give me the 12” height I need. I’m considering using a 4”X3” .25 thickness tube. Any thoughts on this would be helpful.
