Determining Proper Lift Kit for Solitude 5th Wheel Trailer


I am looking at a Solitude fifth wheel, but my truck has a 6” lift. Which lift kit would I need for the Solitude which already has the leaf springs above the axles?


Expert Reply:

The correct lift kit for your Solitude 5th Wheel Trailer is going to depend on type of axles it's equipped with. There are various model years and sub-models of the Grand Design Solitude so I wasn't able to track this information down.

What I recommend doing is simply looking for a sticker that should be located right on the axle itself. This will list the brand/model and weight capacity. If you don't yet have the trailer in hand you can also ask the dealer for this information.

For example the Torflex Lift Kit # K71-725-02 you were looking at is designed for #12 Torflex Axles that have a weight capacity of 5,500 to 7,000 pounds. If you can tell me the info you found on your axles I will be happy to verify this as a fit or recommend an alternative option that is.
