Video Transcript for Dexter Axle Trailer Axles K71-707-01 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Number 10 Torflex two and five-eights inch lift kit for a single axle. Now, this lift kit will raise your trailer frame to provide two and five-eights additional inches, between the trailer frame and the axle. The kit will include the spacers, the mounting hardware for a single axle application. This is designed for use on trailers with a single Number 10 Torflex axle with a 2300 pound to 4000 pound capacity. Does include everything shown here, two of the number ten frame spacers, in the bag here, the hardware is 12 plain washers, eight locking hex nuts, eight hex screws, and a set of detailed instructions on how to install everything. And then I just want to give you the measurements of how much lift it's going to give you.

It's going to be right at two and five-eights inch.But that should do it for the review on the Number 10 Torflex two and five-eights inch lift kit for a single axle.

Worked just as they said it would. Only took a few hours with hand tools. If I were doing this more than once I'd have an impact wrench instead of a ratchet. So far I have never had a bad experience with etrailer. Ordered on phone Wed, received it on Friday. What more could I ask. The trailer axle had been replaced by previous owner and the tire rubbed the fender. etrailer walked me through on who to contact and determine which Dexter spacer I needed. Great sales reps and thanks Paula 643903

This is for a Dexter axle not Lippert axle. This has a hole pattern of 8" and Lippert requires a 9". It could come with a better paint job. I returned my order and the paint was flaking off without even installing it. Repaint it before you install as it just a chunk of metal. 470819

Purchased the lift for my 2006 StarCraft Centennial, which rides extremely low to the ground. The kit fit perfectly and the end result is I no longer scrape the rear of the trailer pulling into my driveway! The only draw back to the kit is the fine threads on the plated bolts makes them difficult to bolt together without an impact wrench. 493764



- K71-707-01

Poor quality hardware. Bolts had many burrs and would not thread without binding. 445053



- K71-707-01
by:

Good quality part and bolts. Didn't fit my Livin Lite Jeep trailer. They are 1/4 inch too wide. Going to cut them down and install. Looks like all the dexter lifts are the same width. Livin Lite used a narrow axle with 1 3/4 wheel spacer so the pivot on the axle is right agains the frame. That is a Livin Light issue not Torflex. Took off one star for the paint. As others noted it is comically thin. The cavity where the bolts rested in shipping chipped away all the paint and they were in a plastic bag. You could build this yourself from 2" tubing. You would need to go source all the bolts, but wouldn't be that hard. Going to keep it and cut it down as noted above since it saves me time at this point. This would have been a 15 minute install had my trailer had a wider perch. 474984



- K71-707-01
by:

This kit worked great, less than 2 hrs. to install. Like other reviews the paint is the weak point, easily chipped off due to poor surface prep and no primer. Powder Coat would be huge improvement, Price was good for Dexter factory parts and the hardware was good quality. Be aware the nuts are self locking (no lock washers) and only go on one way. Would liked to have a little more lift so some height options would be nice. 495937

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. 522256

Perfect fix! Lifted up the camper just right for the 2 gray tanks I installed this past winter. Install was as per the instructions. 512249



- K71-707-01
by:

Product fit right in easy to install. Only issue we had to mount spacer oppsite direction bc our camper had bracket welded opposite of what instruction imaged showed. That however is a design issue with our 04 jayco. 466933



- K71-707-01
by:

Lift kit was used on Jayco X17Z Camper, as I wanted to do more rural camping and gain better ground clearance, as this camper is very low in the first place. Product was great and everything fitted nicely with no issues, see pictures. The only issue I had was with the nuts and bolts, they were quite tight on the threads, certainly won't come undone. 404202



- K71-707-01
by:

Shipped on time, easy install. Approx. 1 hour. Lifted the R-Pod trailer, to a height, worth having. Before installation, the trailer would drag, just leaving the parking lot. Now it is usable. Will add a taller tire, when the old ones wear out. 503281



- K71-707-01
by:

Perfect fit, easy install, and just enough extra height to keep my jack from scraping all the time. It definitely helps to have an impact wrench to deal with the tapered thread suspension bolts. 526911



- K71-707-01
by:

Did the job for me. With the trailer raised by approx 2 1/2" I no longer catch the rear stabilizer jacks when backing up a steep incline into the rear of my yard. Decided not to install it myself, but local tire shop did the installation for $100. Would certainly recommend this lift kit if you need to raise your trailer for any reason. 663499



- K71-707-01
by:

Great product for lifting our R-Pod just a bit to improve ground clearance. Seemed to actually improve handling just a bit, but then that is up to the individual tow vehicle/hitch/trailer setup. Product installed just fine except for the XTRA tight torque required--need a big torque wrench or a lot of muscle! Thanks, e-trailer, for your great service! 658003



- K71-707-01
by:

Perfect fit ,,, follow install instructions and its a piece of cake.I needed approximately 2 inches of lift and I got it 653929



- K71-707-01
by:

Hardware was excellent but our rpod had 9” centres for the bolts. The review said to use the kit I ordered for the number 7 axle. The set I received was at 8” centres so I had to slot the holes to make them fit. Glad you had heavy duty washers. Happy with finished job. 652492



- K71-707-01
by:

This is a simple product that does exactly what it is supposed to do, lifting the trailer for more ground clearance. The installation instructions are clear and if you follow them it's not that difficult to install. The hardware is high quality and the metal parts are welded and machined to close tolerances. 647034

Put the lift kit on my tandem axle 16' trailer and, loaded it with 2 ATV and camping gear and pulled it through mountainous switchback roads in Idaho. Needed the lift for crossing washouts. Worked as advertised. Quality hardware. 634254



- K71-707-01
by:

Easy install, great instructions with photos. The reason behind the three stars as many have pointed out the paint job is terrible it just flakes off, which I have noticed on the Dexter axle my trailer came with. 612069

It worked great and color photo instructions helped and fit just right on my x17z ... The only thing I was not sure about is the 3 or 4 extra washers. 528296


Comments

I took a look at the installation instructions for part K71-707-01. There are two bolts that go through the back of the frame spacers and the frame bracket on the vehicle. These two bolts require one washer on the nut side only. The other two bolts go through the bottom of the frame spacer securing it to the axle bracket. These two bolts require two washers, one on the bolt side and one on the nut side. Repeat this process on the other side of the axle.

I have to say this company has been great! I shot them in a question on adding some axle risers for our ‘17 R-Pod. And not only did they get right back to me but offered me multiple options & few other things to consider while taking on this project. I really liked that it was like talking shop with one of the guys and I appreciate the time they took to help us out. I know it sounds like I have a bromance with this company and yes I have been bragging to friends about these guys but I believe this company had my back and wasn’t just trying to sell me something. Thank you to all at Etrailer Corp. See on y’all on the mountain. 477402

Review from a similar Dexter Axle Torflex in Accessories and Parts


The customer service rep was very nice and helpful in determining which lift kit my axles needed. The parts are well made. The pre-drilled holes were right on the money and aligned perfectly. If you are looking for a little more clearance or trying to prevent tire rub when fully loaded, I absolutely recommend this lift. 613994

Review from a similar Dexter Axle Torflex in Accessories and Parts


I love this product and the lift it gave my torsion axle equipped cargo trailer, which was basically a "low rider" and would occasionally drag the tail on step gas station entrances, etc. I installed it myself. It was time consuming and require multiple jacks and jack stands to accomplish it, but anyone that's mechanically inclined and also has a torque wrench can accomplish it. 505245

Review from a similar Dexter Axle Torflex in Accessories and Parts


Very disappointed with this item. Poor coating, loose packaging, not enough flat washers, and I had to run a tap down all the nuts so they would go onto the bolts. It would have been helpful to have the torque specs for the bolts. 443529

Review from a similar Dexter Axle Torflex in Accessories and Parts


BUYER BEWARE: DO NOT BUY THIS KIT TO LIFT A WINNEBAGO MICRO MINI TRAVEL TRAILER WITHOUT MEASURING YOUR AXEL BOLT SPACING! The “expert” advise of Connor L. to the question “Best Way to Lift a 2018 Winnebago Micro Minnie 2106FBS” that this is the “best way” is WRONG / MISLEADING at best. In fact this is the the WORST WAY because this kit WILL NOT fit on a Winnebago Micro Minnie 2106FBS which is fitted with a dual Lippert Component 3500 lb rated torsion Axel Part No. 866-524-7821 (Winnebago part # 20141311000). (See attached picture). Crawl under your trailer and look for the axel label that is in the center underside of the axel. If you have the same axels that I have, DO NOT BUY THIS KIT. Instead buy two single axel Lippert Part Number LC270628 which does have 9 inch bolt spacing. It will give you more lift and the two kits are less expensive than this dual axel kit. Also as noted by others, my initial inspection of the parts straight out of the box is that the protective coating / paint on these is minimal / inadequate at best. IMHO, additional undercoating / painting / powder coating will be needed to avoid corrosion on this undercarriage part. 634115

All went well, like others said the paint was flaking off, doesn't look like they used primer under the topcoat. I'll just spray on some undercoating when the weather warms a bit . Install went quick. both sides done in 2 1/2 hours. Overall, the 2 5/8 lift is just right for our purposes. I installed this on a 2018 Lance 2285. The only reason for a 4 star rating is the paint quality, otherwise an excellent product. 502358

Good kit, install straight forward, installed on an Airstream Flying Cloud 23D 2017. I needed to move the shock absorbers to install, then put them back on. I also needed to relocate a gas line that went to the water heater, as it was run through a gap in the axel mounting plate. Would have given it 4 stars but they shorted me one washer. I reused a washer from the old hardware. 392097

Everything works as said but...... paint sucks packing sucks missing bolts and washers. Crappy welds seems like it’s about 100$ over priced for what you get and the quality. Will it work yes. Did I have to reweld and repaint then yes. If I didn’t have to ship them back I would return them. But it seems like less work just to fix them and repaint. 483071

It was a easy fix to lift my 1988 Jayco, about 2 hours including finding and placingthe jack stands, didn’t have to take off the wheels like the video recommends, used wrenches instead of hooking up air and using the impact gun! Looks great when I kick back and look at it! 565272

I give a "good" rating only due to small discrepancies such as seen in attached pics. The product is not powder coated, as claimed, yet appears to be enamel baked on without primer. I went no further than opening the box and viewing the contents, after seeing the ragged condition the product was in (see pics). Seems strong enough to do what was intended, just not on my TT. Will I buy from etrailer in the future? YOU BET! 410954

Great. Really helps on rough roads and steep driveway transitions. Dont notice a mileage difference. Airstream should use an axle with steeper angle!

Review from a similar Dexter Axle Torflex in Accessories and Parts


I ordered the Dexter K71-707-02 lift kit for my Haulmark Transport trailer. It was on back order and took two weeks to arrive but etailer.com communicate this to me with a phone call. I thought that was great customer service since most companies these days just email if anything. The product arrive as described accept for the poor quality finish. I stripped it down and re-painted it. That was not such a big deal since I painted all the parts as I installed them and touched up my axle, hubs and under body while the wheels were off. It installed easily and raised my trailer just as I needed. My trailer was so low it scraped on drives and the rear stabilizer jacks did not have enough room to deploy. Tip: The nuts in this kit are locking nuts and require a considerable amount of torque to tighten them. I used a pneumatic impact gun that made the job go much quicker. 494023

This is a Dexter lift kit for there Torflex axles. The hardware is good quality. My only negative opinion about it is the quality of the paint job. No primer, most of the paint fell off in the box! I will need to knock what little paint is left off and do it correctly before I can install it. etrailer did a great job of communication and was quick to ship. Accurate description and the correct part. Thanks etrailer! 394215

Review from a similar Dexter Axle 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. 258114


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!

  • Torsion Axle Lift Kit for 3,500 lb Axle
  • Without knowing any specifics about the axle it isn't possible to guarantee a fit for a torsion axle on a trailer with a 3,450 lb GVWR. The Axle Riser Kit - Single Square Torsion Axle # LC382741 is only designed to fit 3500 Series axles and can be fit whether the axle is a side-mount or top-mount. The other possibility is you have a Dexter #10 Torflex axle, and for that you would need the Torflex Lift Kit # K71-707-01 as those axles have 2,300 to 4,000-lb capacities. These are compatible...

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

  • Recommended Lift Kit Compatible with Dexter Torflex Axles
  • The Torflex Lift Kit - Single Axle - 2-5/8" Lift # K71-707-01 is compatible with No. 10 Torflex axles with 2,300 to 4,000 lb capacities. The Torflex Lift Kit - Single Axle - 2-5/8" Lift # K71-723-01 is for No. 9 Torflex axles with a 2,000 lb capacity. These lift kits cannot be used with the 3 inch high profile brackets. I've attached a photo to help you determine if this is part of your system or not. From what I can find online, you most likely have a No. 10 axle.

  • How To Lift a Forest River R-Pod Trailer
  • The correct lift kit to use on your Forest River R-Pod Trailer will depend on the year. If you have a post 2014 then you will need to use the Axle Riser Kit part # LC382741 for square shaped axles or part # LC270682 for diamond shaped axles as Forest River switched to Lippert Torsion Axles for the R-Pod in 2014. If you have a pre 2014 then you will need to use the Torflex Lift Kit part # K71-707-01 as Forest River used Dexter Torsion Axles before 2014. I always recommend that you check...

  • Lift Kit Availability for Dexter Torflex Axle on R-Pod R-177
  • If you are referring to a lift kit then we have 2 different options for you to choose from if you have a Dexter Torflex axle. If you have a #9 Torflex axle with a 2,000 lb capacity then you want part # K71-723-01. Should you have a #10 Torflex axle with a 2,300 lb - 4,000 lb capacity then you will want part # K71-707-01 instead. Either of these kits will give you a 2-5/8" lift on your 2017 R-Pod R-177.

  • Torsion Axle Lift Kit for 2018 Lance 1475 Single Axle Travel Trailer
  • For your single axle Lance 1475 travel trailer you will use either Torsion Lift Kit # K71-723-01 or kit # K71-707-01 depending on which Torflex axle you have. You can check the identification sticker on the axle beam to find the axle number. If you have a # 10 axle rated for 2300 to 4000-lbs then use kit # K71-707-01. Based on the trailer's 3700-lb GVWR this should be what you have.

  • Torflex Axle Lift Kit for Single Axle 2013 R-Pod 177 Travel Trailer
  • We offer two Torflex axle lift kits for Dexter's torsion axles. All you need to check is the axle weight rating, which will appear either on the axle's own identification sticker or on the trailer's main information plate where axle rating is typically included. Kit # K71-707-01 is for Torflex axles rated between 2300- and 4000-lbs. Kit # K71-723-01 is for 2000-lb axles. The specs for the 2013 R-Pod 177 indicate an axle rating of 2418-lbs so you will want to use kit # K71-707-01.

  • Can 2016 R-Pod Trailer be Suspension Lifted
  • If your trailer has leaf springs you can do this by moving the axles from being above the leaf springs to below the leaf springs. The diameter of your trailer axle will determine the size of the parts that you will need to order. If your axle is 3 inches diameter, the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit, # K71-385-00, would be a great choice and if your axle is 2-3/8 inch diameter you could use the Over-Under Kit, # K71-384-00. These kits can be installed without welding...

  • Lift Kit Recommendation for 2018 Lance 1575 with Torflex Axles
  • 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 2018 Lance 1575 it looks like you have a #10 Torflex axle which means you need part # K71-707-01. This will give you a lift of 2-5/8 inches. The price for the kit is down below. To have it installed shouldn't be too crazy of a price but we can't really give you a quote on that as that will vary upon location....

  • Recommended Tires Size 5.30-12 For Highway Speeds
  • Moving to larger tires and wheels can cause all kinds of trouble with sway and requires replacing a lot of parts on your trailer. My recommendation is to go with a replacement tire that is the same size and rated for highway speed. Taskmaster 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" Silver Mod Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - Load Range C # TTWAS53012SM45HP or the white spoke wheel # TTWAS53012WS45HP, both of which have a speed rating of 81 mph maximum.

  • Trailer Suspension Lift Kit for 2004 Starcraft Centennial 3600 with Single Torsion Axle
  • A pop-up camper trailer like your 2004 Starcraft Centennial 3600 will have either a leaf spring suspension, a torsion axle suspension or if it was modified by a previous owner it could have a Timbren axle-less suspension kit like # A35RS545.

  • Torsion Axle Lift Kit for R-Pod 189 Single Axle Travel Trailer
  • Forest River RV does not provide axle details in the specs for their R-Pod travel trailers such as your 2019 model 189, but I did call Forest River and spoke to their parts team. They will need to know your VIN in order to confirm the torsion axle on it and that will tell you which lift kit to use. Based on the trailer's unloaded weight of 2792-lbs odds are that you will need kit # K71-707-01. This is likely to be the correct kit since it is intended for axles up to a 4K capacity.

  • Recommended Lift Kit for Dexter TorFlex Torsion Axles with 3,500 lb Capacity
  • The Torflex axles have different axle capacities. For capacities between 2,200 lbs and 4,000 lbs you will have #10 Torflex axles. The mounting hardware witll be 8 inches on center so you will use lift kit # K71-707-01. Dexter doesn't give a number or location to help you it is all based on the measurements and capacities. If your axles were 2,000 lb, then they'd be #9 If they were between 5,500 and 7,000 lbs they'd be #12.

  • Recommended Lift Kit for Leveling 5th Wheel Trailer When Pin Box and Hitch Adjustments are Maxed Out
  • It is definitely not recommended to drill a hole in your pin box to add another set of rows. The height of your pin box and hitch will be adjustable to an extent and then you will need to adjust the axles for further leveling. My recommendation is to use an over-under conversion kit like the Dexter # K71-385-00 for 3 inch diameter axles or # K71-384-00 for 2-3/8 inch diameter axles. These conversion kits will raise your trailer at the axles by the diameter of the axle plus the height...
