Lift Kit for Lippert Diamond Torsion Axle on R Pod 178 Travel Trailer


Have a 2017 Rpod178 and would like 2 5/8 lift. How can I be sure your K71-707-01 will work. My axle is diamond I believe in that its a square mounted corners up and down. Sticker on axle says 3500lbs.


Expert Reply:

Due to the orientation of your axle, I believe you have a Lippert Diamond Torsion Axle. If your axle label confirms this, you'll want to use the Lippert axle riser kit, part # LC270682 which provides a 3-1/2 inch lift and is our only diamond axle compatible lift kit. The # K71-707-01 kit you referred to is only compatible with a # 10 Dexter Torflex torsion axle, and wouldn't work with a Lippert diamond axle.

Unfortunately, I don't have a reference that would tell me what axle your R pod left the factory with, but the reference you made to the axle being in the 'diamond' orientation is pretty much a dead giveaway that you have a Lippert torsion axle.

I've linked to a product description video.
