How to Choose the Correct Lift Kit for a 2003 Coachmen Captiva Travel Trailer


Will lift kit K71-725-02 fit a 2003 Coachman Captiva tbs-277

As long as your 2003 Coachmen Captiva has #12 Torflex axles then the Torflex Lift Kit part # K71-725-02 will work well for you. If you have #11 Torflex axles then you will want to use part # K71-724-02 or part # K71-707-02 for #10 Torflex axles. These are the only size Torflex axles we have a lift kit available for at this time.

If you have a round trailer axles and you need to lift the trailer then you will want to use the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit part # K71-384-00 for 2-3/8" diameter axles or part # K71-385-00 for 3" diameter axles. You will need one kit per axle. These axle flip kits will provide you with a lift equal to the diameter of your axle plus the height of your leaf spring pack.

Unfortunately, I was not able to find out which axles are on your trailer. It is pretty simply to tell if you have a round or torsion axle or not as a torsion axle will be square and a round axle will be, well round. However, in order to determine your axle capacity you will need to locate the VIN tag which is typically found on the trailer's frame near the tongue of the trailer.

I have attached a review video for each type of kit for you as well.
