Video Transcript for Review of Lippert Components Trailer Axles - Axle Riser - LC270682

Today we'll be taking at look at the axle riser kit. This for single diamond torsion axles from Lippert. This is going to give you a three and a half inch lift for those trailers where you want to get a little bit more height off of your trailer. This will be especially important for any kind of small campers or enclosed trailers, anything where you might have some sewer lines or anything that's going to be hanging down below the trailer bed. This helps to extend it up a little bit and give you more clearance, so you don't have to worry about those things coming into contact with anything while you're out on the road.We get our two risers, one for either side, so it's going to work for a single axle. Then we'll get our eight bolts, washers, and locknuts.

These are going to be compatible with side mount or top mount torsion axle mounting brackets. And you want to make sure that your axle are the diamond shape, not the square. That would be turned to the side. So this is going to be for those ones that are kind of turned on their corner. And, again, this is a specific fit for the Lippert axles.

As far as dimensions with these or brackets, each measure about 12 inches long and then three and a half inches wide, three and a half inches tall. And then about two inches wide.The distance for the mounting holes center to center is about nine inches. And that's going to be the same for our other two mounting holes, nine inches apart center to center. Those mounting holes for the ones on the side here are just under three-quarters of an inch wide by an inch and a quarter. And that's going from the end of the oblong hole to the other side.

That's the inside diameter there, about three-quarters of an inch to one and a quarter. And then going in the other direction, it's again going to be about three-quarters or about 11/16ths. And then just about an inch for those smaller holes.We do have a lot of information available here at etrailer.com. If you have any additional questions be sure to find our experts and find that information that you need. If you need the square version of the same kit that will give you three and a half inches of rise on a single torsion axle, that part number is available here at etrailer.com, and that's going to be LC382741.

That's for the square torsion axles. And that's going to do it for our look at the axle riser kit for the single diamond torsion axle.

This kit was great. I had a 2017 Winnebago Minnie Drop 1780 with single axle which I put this 3.5" lift kit on. I just didn't like the camper being so low to the ground; especially since I hunt grouse in the U.P., the dump valves were concerningly close to the ground, and all the newer trailers seem to be coming from the factory with much higher clearance, almost like off roading clearance.

I did the installation 100% myself... and I'm a lawyer. I just jacked up one side at at time with a hydraulic lift and used my Ryobi cordless impact wrench to lossen the axle and install the lifts one side at a time loosely, then I went back and tightened all bolts.

The appearance was much improved, as was the ground clearance, and even though the center of gravity was raised, the camper handled just fine with my Chevy Colorado.

I traded that trailer in this Spring for a Micro Minnie 2108TB because I wanted a little more interior room and two axles. The new trailer is lifted a lot right from the factory.

I've only been RVing 2 years, I'm 73, and my wife, dog and I are loving it.

After being brushed off by the OEM, I purchased my axle lift kit from etrailer. There were reviews, and even a video on how to install the brackets, so I felt prepared for when the kit arrived. Although I am located in Ontario Canada, the parts arrived at my door much quicker than I expected. My local garage completed the install in under two hours, so the labour bill was very reasonable.
My trailer now rides 3 1/2 inches higher giving me much better ground clearance for the underhung drain pipework.


Comments
After 5000 Km travelling towing the lifted trailer this past year I am still delighted with the decision to lift. There have been no issues with towing, and the trailer stands clear of the ground while at site.

by:

Simple, straightforward, and effective. We needed to raise the camper to avoid dragging the tail on our steep driveway. Now with the additional clearance, we’re able to reattach the steps and stabilizers. A wonderful and inexpensive solution.




by:

The online guidance made it clear which model was the correct fit and it was right! We've had the kit on for several months with many trips in between off bumpy fire roads and had zero issues, thanks!




by:

Taking the old nuts and bolts out is harder to install the lift kits. But what a difference getting in and out of the driveway. No more getting stuck and breaking the jack.


Comments
Loves it after one year later. No more problems getting in and out of the driveway.

Exactement ce que j’avais besoin . Facile à installer pour ma microwinnie 1700bh. [Exactly what I needed. Easy to install for my microwinnie 1700bh]




by:

The lift kit went in easy with the use of air tools and it’s exactly what this camper needed.




by:

Gives us peace of mind knowing that we aren't dragging our Rpods backend when going in and out of parkiNg lot dips. We had these installed at the shop and then we added a 2 step into our RV. Everything is great. Love this product




by:

Got this because we wanted more clearance. Jacking and supporting the trailer safely was the most difficult part. Installation went well keeping in mind the tightening/torquing of the lower bolts first as they are no longer easily accessible once the upper bolts are installed. All holes aligned perfectly. Have yet to do a long haul with it but did try it for a couple of miles. Loved the feel, what a change. And oh yeah, built a storage box that doubles as a step extension LOL.




by:

This kit worked fine on my Forest River RPOD model 202. The installation was easy. Because the RPOD 202 was a tandem axle trailer I bought 2 kits, 1 for each axle.




by:

I installed them under a Scamp 16 foot RV so that I could use larger tires. Good solid product and easy to install. I've put on about 4,000 miles so far and all is well.


Comments
Great lift kit. After several thousand mules and trips to both coasts there have bee no problems.

These are the correct part for the 3500lb Lippert diamond torsion axle under our 2016 R-Pod. It too me about an hour and a half to install them.

Raise the camper, support the frame in front and rear of axle, with jack under axle bracket remove the two factory bolts, lower axle, place riser in, raise axle up, then install the 4 bolts/nuts. Don't forget to cut the zip tie to give the brake wiring harness some slack.

In one photo the axle is down, the other is the riser in place and bolts being added.




by:

Finally had the kits (2) installed. Trailer looks great, upgrading 2016 Micro Minnie to off-road version. This helps get the gray/black lines higher off the ground. 15" wheels and 235/75/15 to be installed later this week. I did add a few more coats of paint to the kit.




by:

My brother was able to install this kit in about an hour (he's a heavy duty mechanic) on our Winnebago 1700BH. We backed it into this driveway as a true test. Our rear jacks and sway bars scraped badly before the kit and didn't even graze it after the kit.




by:

Product worked perfectly to lift trailer. With some modifications it was as hoped.




by:

Super Simple installation in 20 minutes with a lift, an impact wrench and torque wrench. Simple to follow directions and torque specs right in the instructions. Genuine Lippert component for our Lippert axle equipped trailer. We no longer worry about dragging the rear stabilizers on driveway entrances that aren't totally flat. Installed on a 2020 R-Pod 178.


Comments
After a year, we are still thrilled with the purchase. Zero issues and we comment every time we pull into and out of a steep lip on a drive-skirt how likely we would have been to remove a rear stabilizer before the installation. Puts the R-Pod up at the height it should have been from the factory.

by:

Was wanting to get more space between tires and fender. In addition, was using a 9” drop shank. (Truck has 6” lift) With this 3.5” lift, was able to use my 6” drop shank and have plenty of clearance between tire and fender. This was a a great addition to our pod.




by:

The insides of both blocks had surface rust on the welds that had to be cleaned up and painted before installed. If I wasn’t in a pickle and needed to lift trailer, I would have returned.




by:

Awesome fit. Perfect alignment on holes. Couple jack stands and a few hours easy install.




by:

Simple and easy installation. I was able to give my 2018 R-Pod 189 the lift it needed.


Comments
Still Great!!! Durable with no issues.
Gary P - 08/28/2020


by:

Part worked great, doing exactly what it was designed to do. Only issue was that the etrailer online description of the product did not make clear that it would work on my axle. A rep at the company replied to me in an email that it would so all was fine in the end.




by:

Completed the install on my own, was pretty straightforward. Exactly what I was looking for, it now gives me extra clearance with my trailer exiting my driveway or pulling through any dips as the stabilizers no longer scrape the ground.




by:

Wasn't that hard to install with a floor jack. Lifted my Micro Mini up where I didn't have to pray at every slight incline! Well worth the time and money.




by:

It bolted right in. Easy to install. Still looks good. Gave me the extra clearance we needed. We can't notice a difference in towing.




by:

We have an 2019.5 R Pod 190 which sat very close to the ground. We wanted to take it off paved roads in the mountains of West Texas. The riser kit was a must. I would say that I am very happy with Etrailer and this kit. It does the job! I did pay someone to install it because of time limitations. So far so good. I did order the wrong kit at first. My Pod has a LCI (Lippert) Diamond axle. Etrailer made the refund and repurchase very easy! Thanks
