Review from a similar Torflex in Accessories and Parts


I had read other reviews about poor quality paint on the product and I was a little worried. When it arrived the paint was fine. Installation wasn’t that hard - my only problem was that my brake wiring was run through the bracket so I had to cut the wire and rewire..
Great product and I would highly recommend.

This lift kit gave my new Airstream Basecamp needed clearance to navigate terrain to reach more remote camping locations. etrailer staff helped me select the correct kit for my axle. This DIY project saved me significantly over the manufacture installed option. A great upgrade.

Installed on a 2017 NuCamp Tag XL. Needed a little extra head room for the kitchen clamshell. Install was easy with basic tools, a couple jack stands, tape measure and some red loctite. Lift height is as claimed because it directly lifts the axle. Product has worked great, nothing has come loose or shifted. Stability towing has not changed. The only trouble is the wiring for the fender light is a little tight but that is a camper issue, no fault of the lift.

Product arrived 3 days later than estimated. When I lifted the package washers were spilling out of the box. Three stars for the great assistance I received from customer service and because everything was there and no damage to the product. Subtracted two stars for sloppy packaging.

Own a 17' Casita trailer towed by a Sienna. Visit & camp in some rough places. Rear axle dragged a few times but one spot damaged the built-in rear jacks. Switched to oversize tires. Not enough so installed the Dexter Lift Kit. Rapid delivery by etrailers with all parts and clear instructions. Installed by myself in one day (with breaks to straighten up). Of course original bolts hard to loosen in the limited space. Lift brackets easy to put in place and bolt up. Used Red Locktite and torqued bolts. (Loosening them next guy's problem). After hitch adjustment, back on the road with 3" extra clearance. Works great - nothing fallen off yet! Another successful etrailer project for me.

Installed this kit on a 2017 Airstream Sport 16. We boondock a lot and the ground clearance was a problem. The 3" lift was a perfect solution to even out the ride height and give extra clearance in the back. The instructions are clear and I was able to do the entire project alone in just over 2 hours. The metal spacer fits precisely on to top of the axle, no adjustments were needed. I used 2 jack stands, 2 floor jacks, and an air gun which is a must or it would take twice as long. One of the jacks was used to hold the axle and to lift it up after the spacer is fitted. The lift kit is very good quality (besides the paint) and I feel confident it will last. Easy with the right tools!

Review from a similar Torflex in Accessories and Parts


Kit seemed to be built well. Got my order a little slow, free shipping.. went on easy and instructions were clear, not many steps. When I did get my order it was missing a block. I called and the lady was extremely helpful. It wasn’t retailers fault, box was damaged in shipping, a block was left out when taped back together by a ups employee. I made the mistake of not counting parts in the beginning, just started to install. However it took 2 weeks to get the new block. I was told it would be marked urgent and would get it in a couple of days. I called a week later and was told again it would be marked urgent, at that point I asked if I could pay for faster shipping and was told no that it would be shipped fast. It took longer to get one piece which was in stock than it did to get original order. Not happy with the “urgent” but overall I am happy.


Comments
Working great. I’ve been on a few 100+ mile trips and no issues, pulls straight still. Was an easy install except the missing block which took way to long to receive.

Install this about a year ago. The lift kit prevents the dreaded drag over driveways or rises. Couldn't be happier with it. Very easy to install with a little help from a Jack and a good torque wrench

Review from a similar Torflex in Accessories and Parts


I ordered this kit in mid-May after seeing an email about it from a competitor site to etrailer.com. I ordered from the other site then got an email stating that the kit was on back order from Dexter until the end of June. I googled the Dexter part number and found that etrailer.com also sold it, and even better, etrailer was offering free freight and a slightly lower cost. Since the kit is heavy, free freight would save me about $40, so I cancelled the order with the first company and re-ordered from etrailer.com. I got an email from them as well about the extended back order but then, I also got a follow up call from them explaining the situation. The call was an extra added touch that I appreciated. Then, right at the end of May, I got an email stating that my Dexter kit had shipped, so I figured that etrailer.com must have put some pressure on Dexter to get off their butt and ship it! The kit itself was great, really well made parts, powder coated and heavy gauge. Honestly, I am surprised that they sell it for only $150. The install is tricky and will take you 6 hours if you are good with tools and like wrenching. Don't attempt this project on your own if you are not. Pay a trailer guy $400 to do it. You have to keep the axles aligned when you drop them...and the bolt placement is not great so you have to have hands that can fit in the tight cramped space and be able to get a wrench on the. Over all, I am very happy with the lift, it was a pretty simple and cost effective way for me to get better clearance for my Airtsream.....Airstreams are notoriously low and with the approach I have from my street to the driveway, I constantly battled dragging either the hitch or the rear. This kit solved that. I am super satisfied and highly recommend it if you are in the same situation as I was. Buy it from etrailer.com, they have the best customer service I have experienced when buying trailer and camping items on the internet.


Comments
The lift kit has worked out very well. I notice that things I. The trailer bounce around a little more since I did the lift but overall I am still glad I did it since I no longer worry about dragging the rear end of the trailer when entering or leaving my driveway. Very happy with my purchase!

Saw this link on [another] site. Didn’t know it existed. Ordered one right away. Shipped the next day for free! Very easy install. Looks great. Hopefully no more mangled license plate.

Delivery was good for timely. The box obviously had been damaged and re-taped alon the way. Not all the hardware was there. Missing a few nuts bolts and washers.

Review from a similar Torflex in Accessories and Parts


I had an RV service center put the kit on. But in doing so it did lift the trailer enough that I'm not wiping out my back steps and rear bumper as much as I was. I'm really happy with the product and the service center. And happy that I did fine the lift kit. Thank you etrailer.

Review from a similar Torflex in Accessories and Parts


Well the package arrived in time but none of the nuts only go on the bolt about two turns and that is it? Totally disappointed? I can't even install the kit. What's really sad is this is factory kit from Dexter Axel the company that made my trailer axels. I will call etrailer tomorrow and try to get this straightened out.

Installed on a 2014 22fb sport. Provides excellent clearance. No more damage to dump valves or rear steps. Highly recommend and Etta I let service is great!

Review from a similar Torflex in Accessories and Parts


This kit was extremely easy to install. Great color directions came with it. On our 2019 E-Pro 19BH travel trailer it was as simple as remove 4 factory bolts (2 per side), lower the axle a bit, place lift block, & install 4 new bolts per side. With this kit, new wheels, & tires we were able to gain 4 inches of lift for our camper. Our waste holding tank drain pipe & valves were so close to the ground & we constantly would drag pulling into or out of areas. This gives us great peace of mind & our camper looks amazing to us now.

Used to raise 1978 Excello 500 Airstream. Some interference with shocks," centers had to reverse bolts to clear. Also had to elongate Frame holes to 9 1/2" from 9" centers. Overall good quality product.

Review from a similar Torflex in Accessories and Parts


Was a retrofit for my 2018 Forest River Flagstaff A-Frame Model 21TBHW. Dexter #10 Torflex axel No drilling or welding but tires do need to be off for the lift bracket install. Instructions provided are well written & clear. You will need jack stands and a good torque wrench to complete the install correctly. No issues with brake cables being short. If you can or have rotated your own tires this should not be a problem for you. Bolts have to be torqued and even with a great torque wrench and a 3 foot pull arm you are in a tight spot so if you can't bench press 150+ you need to get a battery or air impact torque driver. Hope this helps. I am very happy with the install and got about 3.5" of lift easy to see in the photos.

Review from a similar Torflex in Accessories and Parts


A not so easy modification to our Airstream Classic 33FBT. With the help of a friend, we were able to complete the install in less than 8 hours. The Airstream belly tanks make access a little tougher that your average cargo trailer.
The biggest benefit was having every possible option in wrenches, sockets, crows foot, and tools available. It did require lifting the Airstream and placing it on jack stands, then working one axle at a time.
It is not an easy install, but worth it. The dealer wanted $2500. to complete it. I cost us, the kit and a few meals. I should not one individual will be on their back the whole time, you need one person under it and one at the wheel well.
We did not notice a huge difference in towing, as Airstreams are lower riding anyway, there inches did not make a huge difference in our profile, but made a huge improvement to our approach and departure angles.

Great product, if you have the right tools.

Fit and finish was excellent. Bolt torque was pretty high so I used a “cheater bar” for leverage, and metal dowels to index bolt holes (important).
Lifted RV for higher blackwater waste gate clearance.

Review from a similar Torflex in Accessories and Parts


This lift kit worked fantastic for our trailer. Despite having Lippert axles this kit bolted up with no fuss at all. I was very impressed with the quality of the hardware provided, it was by far better than the factory hardware that the manufacturer used. Overall, I would buy this kit again in a heartbeat.

Review from a similar Torflex in Accessories and Parts


I was really having a hard time getting in and out of gas stations, much less any kind of off-road parking/driving. With the help of one other friend with some multiple jacks, we installed the lift kit on my Globetrotter 27 footer in about two hours complete. It's been a dream ever since. I can go down rough roads and in and out of spots with a bit of a gully to get in with no probs. Thanks etrailer - It's just right!

My brother installed them at my house. Had he remembered his big jack stands it would’ve gone faster. Everything bolted up easily and the trailer now clears the pickup bed.
