Installed on a 2017 NuCamp Tag XL. Needed a little extra head room for the kitchen clamshell. Install was easy with basic tools, a couple jack stands, tape measure and some red loctite. Lift height is as claimed because it directly lifts the axle. Product has worked great, nothing has come loose or shifted. Stability towing has not changed. The only trouble is the wiring for the fender light is a little tight but that is a camper issue, no fault of the lift.




by:

Saw this link on [another] site. Didn’t know it existed. Ordered one right away. Shipped the next day for free! Very easy install. Looks great. Hopefully no more mangled license plate.




by:

Easy to install less than 1 hour.Instructions easy to follow. Done with hand tools.Delivery was fast.Raised my teardrop trailer up to the perfect height (no more tail dragging)




by:

Items ordered were received in good condition and the install went very smooth. Customer service was top notch since there were back ordered items and options were presented. Would definitely recommend using e trailer.




by:

I ordered this kit to provide extra room for tires(AM3S120) that have a higher speed rating. Everything shipped quickly! The kit fit perfectly with no problems.




by: 04/18/2022

The copy of the instructions are so bad you can’t read them or see the pictures and your link is broken……


Comments
I have gotten some updated instructions and had them added to the site. Please see the new link for the instructions.

by:

I love my camper, but my only complaint is that it did not have the ground clearance I needed for anything but the best roads. This kit allows me to get off-road, not to very extreme conditions, but much better than it was without it.




by:

easy install. just what the trailer nee ded




by:

Ordering was easy. Shipping was on time. Communication on shipping was good.
The kit appeared to well made. Didn't see any issues upon opening. The instructions were clear and easy to follow.
The only thing was the bolts and nuts, I don't know if they have some sort of locktite or something on them but I had to wrench them from the first two turns to the end, and really had to work at it as they were incredibly tight. At first I thought that either I had cross threaded them or that the bolt and nut were different threads, neither was an issue. It took me probably twice to three times longer to install the kit because of this. It was easier to take off the very rusted original bolts than putting the new ones on.
The final results were excellent.




by:

Item came as described. Very stout hardware. Dexter must have fixed the powder coat issue(some reported chipping upon arrival), because the item was fully coated with no paint chips .

This gave me a good lift so that my trailer would not drag everywhere I went. This went on a 1993 Skamper 240C. Install is very easy. 4 bolts to drop the axle. 8 bolts to attach the lift.

Definitely recommend for #9 axle. You can identify yours by crawling underneath the trailer and looking at the capacity. 2000 lbs is #9. Which is this part!




by:

Works great! This product comes with all the parts required to bolt on to the camper/axle...




by:

Well it lifted my tag trailer to match my jeep




by:

The spacing for the axle were right on, the holes spacing for the trailer was correct except had to be elongated up and down. Other then that the rest went smoothly. I love the extra height.




by:

They work just as advertised. I used them to lift a [email protected] teardrop, and the installation was very straightforward. Together with the new, larger tires and wheels I am putting on (going from 13" to 15" wheels), I will pick up just over 4" in additional ground clearance.




by:

Excellent advice and quick delivery. Will use them again.




by:

I installed these on a 725T aluminum frame 1999 Terry. They raised the trailer a couple inches which doesn't sound like much but made all the difference in dragin the back bumper, back levelers etc. Couldn't tell any difference in towing or fuel useage. Any ways it wasn't enough to notice. Trailer handled the same. Make sure to cross check fitment with the folks at the store. I didnt originally and paid a hefty restock shipping fee for not doing so. Good luck and Happy Trails
Jeffb


Comments
The lift did what I needed it to do. I havent noticed any difference in towing. A few inches makes a big difference. Installed on 2000 25fleetwood terry.
Jeffrey R - 08/23/2020


by:

The lift kit part looks like it was manufactured properly (I haven't installed the lift yet), but as many have mentioned, the paint job sucked. The hardware bag ripped open in route and the loose parts rattled off a lot of the paint. I repainted before installing.

The package shipped the day of the order and arrived on time. The 4 Star rating was due to Dexter Axle's packaging...not etrailer.com.

I will order from etrailer.com again.




by:

My Forest River "mini lite" trailer axles wimped out, and the trailer was just about sitting on top of the tires, would rub even if the water tank was full. New axles were out of the question so I got two of these lift kits. problem solved , not a hard install. If you're not sure which axle you have take a picture of the sticker on the axle and call Dexter they will tell you so you can order the right lift kit.




by:

Installed this about a year ago. Simple and sturdy with good quality. Everything you need is there. Installation took about 30 minutes. My trailer is used for overlanding so this part has proven itself on rough trails and mostly off pavement action.

I probably could have used a taller lift but thats purely personal preference.




by:

It was a easy fix to lift my 1988 Jayco, about 2 hours including finding and placingthe jack stands, didn’t have to take off the wheels like the video recommends, used wrenches instead of hooking up air and using the impact gun! Looks great when I kick back and look at it!


Comments
Worked out great on the lift kit
Ronald - 09/14/2019


by:

Installation was super fast and straight forward allowing more clearance for the step on my trailer and for larger tires.




by:

I have a 2019 Geo Pro FBS without the off-road package. The Geo Pro had 14" wheels. The ground clearance was not that great so I went with this 3" Torflex lift kit.
Now when I say that the installation was easy, that is exactly that. Super easy and it did come with an installation booklet with step by step photos.
Total install time: 1 hr 30 min. That is start to finish.
Total height that I gained: over 5 inches. Because I went with 225/ 75/ 15R.
This is the best route to go toget the extra needed clearance.




by:

Everything is great. The only thing was we had plenty of bolts and washers, but no nuts. Luckily I found extra in my garage. Other than that, great product.




by:

Item is fine, simple install on the component. Service with etrailer excellent. Polite, courteous, and my parts arrived quickly. Thank you.




by:

So far impressed with how much more clearance this will give me seems pretty stout hopefully it lasts a long time thanks for this product.

  • Dexter Torflex Axle Lift Kit for Side-Mounted 2200-lb Axles
    Yes, for your side-mounted Torflex axles the Torflex Lift Kit # K71-723-01 is the correct item. You will need two of these as you noted. These are not compatible with top-mounted torsion axles.

  • Lift Kit for Dexter Torsion Axle on 2015 [email protected] Camper Trailer
    Thank you for the photo of your camper's axle tag. Based on the serial number the correct lift kit is indeed part # K71-723-01 that you referenced, but I did check with Dexter Axle to make sure. This 2-5/8-inch lift kit will work only with side-mounted axles but not with top-mounted applications.

  • How to Determine if Torflex Lift Kit part # K71-723-01 Would Fit Trailer
    If the distance between the bolt hole centers on your Torflex axle is 7-3/4 inches then you have the #9 Torflex axle and the lift kit part # K71-723-01 would fit and work well. If you have a different dimension there let me know and I'll see what else we may have that could fit.

  • Could Torflex Lift Kit # K71-723-01 Fit Jayco Eagle 10FS
    If your Jayco Eagle 10FS has a Dexter #9 Torflex axle with a 2,000 lb capacity the # K71-723-01 will fit and work well to give you a lift of 2-5/8 inches. With that extra lift you'd have more clearance to run a larger wheel and tire if you wanted to. We don't have access to the tire size or axle type of your trailer though otherwise I'd look it up for you.

  • Could Torflex Lift Kit # K71-723-01 Fit 1996 Jayco 1206 Deluxe Camper
    If your 1996 Jayco 1206 Deluxe has Torflex # 9, 2,000 lb axles then yes the correct lift kit is the Torflex Lift Kit # K71-723-01 that you referenced. If you check the axle you should find a sticker that has the axle info listed. Or it can also be listed up on the frame of the trailer near the coupler.

  • How to Determine What Axle is on Trailer to Pick Out Torflex Lift Kit
    You can check the plate near the coupler of the trailer that has the VIN and GVWR rating info and the axles should be listed there. Or you can check the axles themselves and they are typically labelled with brand info etc. The Torflex Lift Kit # K71-723-01 that you referenced would require the axle to be the #9 Torflex axles with a 2,000-lb capacity. This will lift the trailer 2-5/8 inches.

  • Bolt Size in Dexter Torflex Lift Kit for #9 Torflex Axles
    The bolts in the Torflex Lift Kit - Single Axle - 2-5/8" Lift # K71-723-01, which fits #9 Torflex axles with a 2,000-lb capacity are 1/2"-13 Screw Hex Cap Bolts which are 1-1/4" long. I have added a link to a video review of this kit for you to check out as well.

  • Why Would Lifting Trailer Suspension Potentially Void Trailer Warranty
    When you lift a trailer you potentially change the suspension geometry which might affect handling characteristics. So based on that it sounds like Lance would want to void the warranty of the camper. It would be like installing a lift kit on a truck and then trying to have a suspension issue after that claimed as a warranty fix. That said, we've not had anyone install a lift on their trailer and then come back and tell us their trailer handled poorly.

  • Lift Kit for 2002 Starcraft Travelstar Trailer
    Since you have a #9 Torflex axle on your 2002 Starcraft Travelstar trailer the lift kit you'd need is the part # K71-723-01. Since this is a single axle lift kit you'd need a quantity of 2 since you have a tandem axle trailer.

  • Lift Kit for 1,500 lb #9 Torfllex Dexter Axle
    My contact at Dexter confirmed that the Torflex Lift Kit # K71-723-01 will work for your 1,500 lb #9 Torflex axle. That being said, based on your serial number 122265412, I was able to confirm you have a top mounted axle. So in order to install the lift kit, you'll need to replace the existing top mount hangers with a side mount hanger kit, Dexter part number A/P-165-00. You'll need to source that locally though, as we do not carry it.

  • Which Lift Kit for 2015 Rockwood A122 with Dexter #9 Torsion Axle
    From what I was able to find with some research it does look like most 2015 Rockwood A122 Pop-up campers had Dexter #9 Torsion axles, but I was not able to verify that with the number you provided. Assuming that your trailer does have the #9 Torsion axle then the # K71-723-01 would be the correct lift kit and the only one available for your trailer. This kit gives you 2-5/8" of additional ground clearance. If you can provide a photo of the axle spec sticker where you found the serial...

  • Lift Kit that Fits Jayco 1006 Pop-Up Camper
    I forwarded the info you sent to Dexter and they were able to determine that your 2005 Jayco Jay Series 1006 pop up has Dexter #9 Torflex axles so for a lift kit you'd want the part # K71-723-01. This will give you a lift of 2-5/8 inches.

  • Lift Kit Needed for a Torflex Axle on a 2017 Lance 1575 Travel Trailer
    I do not advise you flipping the Torflex axle as that is not how it was designed to be used. Instead what you need is a lift kit for your axle. For single Torflex axle trailers we have 2 different lift kits, part # K71-723-01 for #9 Torflex axles and part # K71-707-01 for #10 Torflex axles. From what I could find on your 2017 Lance 1575 it looks like you have a #10 Torflex axle which means you need part # K71-707-01. This kit will lift your trailer 2-5/8" which isn't exactly the 2-7/8"...

  • Torsion Axle Lift Kit for R-Pod 189 Single Axle Travel Trailer
    Forest River RV does not provide axle details in the specs for their R-Pod travel trailers such as your 2019 model 189, but I did call Forest River and spoke to their parts team. They will need to know your VIN in order to confirm the torsion axle on it and that will tell you which lift kit to use. Based on the trailer's unloaded weight of 2792-lbs odds are that you will need kit # K71-707-01. This is likely to be the correct kit since it is intended for axles up to a 4K capacity.

  • Lift Kit for 2,400 lb Torsion Axle
    From your description your Torflex axle has a weight capacity of 2,400 lbs and the correct Torflex Lift Kit is # K71-707-01, which is for #10 Torflex axles that have capacities between 2,300 lbs to 4,000 lbs. Please note that this kit cannot be used with Torflex axles that have 3" high profile brackets. Torflex Lift Kit # K71-723-01 is for #9 Torflex axles with a 2,000 lb capacity. I checked and your 1993 Jayco 1206 has a GVWR of 2,440 lbs so a 2,000 lb capacity axle would be too light.

  • How to Lift a 2010 Forest River R-Pod M-173 Travel Trailer
    According to my research, your 2010 Forest River R-Pod M-173 travel trailer came with Dexter Torflex axles. Therefore, in order to lift the trailer you would need to use one of the following depending on which axle you have. If you have a #9 (2,000 lb) axle then you will want to use part # K71-723-01 but if you have a #10 (2,300 lb - 4,000 lb) axle then you will want to use part # K71-707-01. Both of these kits will offer a 2-5/8" lift. They are super easy to install as all you will need...

  • Recommended Lift Kit Compatible with Dexter Torflex Axles
    The Torflex Lift Kit - Single Axle - 2-5/8" Lift # K71-707-01 is compatible with No. 10 Torflex axles with 2,300 to 4,000 lb capacities. The Torflex Lift Kit - Single Axle - 2-5/8" Lift # K71-723-01 is for No. 9 Torflex axles with a 2,000 lb capacity. These lift kits cannot be used with the 3 inch high profile brackets. I've attached a photo to help you determine if this is part of your system or not. From what I can find online, you most likely have a No. 10 axle.

    We offer two Torflex axle lift kits for Dexter's torsion axles. All you need to check is the axle weight rating, which will appear either on the axle's own identification sticker or on the trailer's main information plate where axle rating is typically included. Kit # K71-707-01 is for Torflex axles rated between 2300- and 4000-lbs. Kit # K71-723-01 is for 2000-lb axles. The specs for the 2013 R-Pod 177 indicate an axle rating of 2418-lbs so you will want to use kit # K71-707-01.

    If you are referring to a lift kit then we have 2 different options for you to choose from if you have a Dexter Torflex axle. If you have a #9 Torflex axle with a 2,000 lb capacity then you want part # K71-723-01. Should you have a #10 Torflex axle with a 2,300 lb - 4,000 lb capacity then you will want part # K71-707-01 instead. Either of these kits will give you a 2-5/8" lift on your 2017 R-Pod R-177.
