Lift Kit Needed for a Torflex Axle on a 2017 Lance 1575 Travel Trailer


I have a 2017 Lance 1575 trailer and want to lift the trailer the 2-7/8 inch Can you please specify the correct part? Is this as safe as changing the axle? The axle is TORFLEX HF=74.5 IP=59 SA=22.5 DT RC350 Can this axle be reversed to achieve 30 degrees down without any safety issue to achieve trailer clearance? Thank you,

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" lift you are looking for, but it is within 1/4" so it will work perfectly fine for your application.

Review videos have been linked for you to reference as well.

The axexl for the 2017 1575, like I own, cannot be lifted by a kit according to Lance and does not show up as an option in their brocure. The 2019 Lance 1575 can use a lift kit and is listed as an option in the brocure. There is a solution called a 45 deg angel swap according to Lance. I believe this is entails installing a new axel. Lance quoted a cost of $838 for the part.

Does this include step by step directions for me to do the lift myself? I have a 2017 Lance 1575. Also, is this the highest lift available?

The highest lift kit for a torflex axle like yours is going to be 2 5/8". If you have a #10 axle, you are going to need # K71-707-01 and you can find the installation instructions on our product page.
