Video Transcript for Dexter Axle Torflex Lift Kit Review

Hi there, trailer owners. Today, we're going to be taking a look at Dexter's Torflex Lift Kit. These are compatible with Dexter's Torflex Axles. This truck lift kit is going to work with your Dexter Axles and your trailer to raise your trailer up. This is going to help level out your trailer. If your truck sits too high, leaving the front end of your trailer jacked up and the back of your trailer down when you're hauling your trailer, this could lead to scraping at the back of your trailer due to the angle, angling it down.

And by leveling out our trailer, it also helps to load the tongue weight properly on our truck. So this is overall just going to increase the driving experience that we're going to feel when hauling our trailer.Our customer had an issue with his truck being too high for his trailer, causing it to haul unlevel. After we got done installing the components here, we can see that our trailer is completely level all the way down, which is going to increase the driving experience inside of our truck just due to the way our trailer is going to handle. The weight's going to be properly distributed onto the back of our truck, which is going to allow us to get proper braking and handling performance at the front. Our customer also has a weight distribution system on here as well to help even out that weight.

All these components are going to work together just to give you the smoothest and best handling performance when driving your truck down the road when hauling your trailer.Other issues some trailers can run into, particularly if they have the swing out arm styles for their support system, is that in certain areas, depending on how level the ground is where you're at and if there's any rough terrain, some of those arms may hit the ground when you're trying to swing them out and then you can't level properly. You have to move it around and adjust until you can find that sweet spot. Lifting the trailer up a couple of inches is going to give you that clearance that you're going to need, so you can more easily get set up and ready to go at your campsite.And this is what our lift kit looks like when it's installed. I've got the wheels off so that you can see the spacers in place here between our axle and the frame. That's where it goes.

Going to give us greater clearance to the ground, so when we're hauling our trailer, we don't have to worry about as much issues with scraping on the ground, particularly if we have leveling jacks and things like that that are hanging down below. And in some cases, depending on your campsite where you park it, you may be so low to the ground in that particular spot that you can't even use your landing gear properly to level out your trailer because they just don't quite meet where they need to.By lifting it up, we get more room to work with on our landing gear so we can get those legs swung out and everything set up properly. And it can also help out with getting it properly set up with your truck. If your truck's lifted up higher than your trailer, then you can haul it uneven. And you want to try to haul it as even as possible to have the proper load and tongue weight on your truck's hitch at the back.

So something like this is going to lift it up and provide that for you. And you can see it comes with all the hardware that we need, brand new hardware for attaching both our axle to our bracket, as well as attaching our bracket to our trailer.One thing you'll want to keep in mind when performing this installation is that you are increasing the distance between your axle and your trailer here by about this much. And depending on your brakes that you have installed, whether they are electric or hydraulic, you may need to extend the wires or the hydraulic lines in order for this system to work properly with your trailer. On the one that we installed today, we did have to add a few inches to the wiring in order to lower it down and be able to have proper travel of our suspension without damaging the wires that go to our electric brakes. And when it comes to the installation, it's considerably easier than many other style of lift kits for different style of suspension.With this style here, with the TorkLift Axles, it's as simple as lifting your trailer up to where it hangs off the ground. You want to give yourself a considerable gap between the ground and your tires when you got it up to ensure that once you get your kit installed, you can get your wheels back on if you did take those off. I would recommend at least four inches between that when lifting it up. But once you got it lifted up, it's as simple as placing your jack underneath, lowering down one side, installing the spacer, and then moving onto the next one. I'd recommend finishing up this axle, doing the other side, and then moving on to your next one. And that completes our look at the Torflex Lift Kit.

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.




by:

This lift arrived as advertised and in great shape. I had our local RV Service shop install it on our Lance 2285. It provides us with a lot more ground clearnance for those very unlevel campsites and roads.

Excellent!

I haven't used them yet. On initial inspection the painted surfaces were marred to the metal and an area on one of the pieces looked like it had some slag chiseled of leaving bare metal. Slag or what looked like slag was near a bolt hole and will have to be removed by chisel or file as my grinding tools won't fit. Not too pleased with the manufacturing process and I hope it doesn't affect the integrity of the product's functionality.


Comments
You mentioned that one of the pieces had slag near a bolt hole that had to be chiseled off. I reached out to the manufacture and it was determined that it is spatter that happened during production. It can be removed and will not affect the integrity of the products functionality.

I have a 2018 airstream 25 ft flying cloud. Will this lift kit fit?
-- comment by: Fred C - 07/14/2022



by:

I gave it a 3 based on my experience with installation, however it may have been the axles themselves that were the problem.



1) Couldn’t find a match on the etrailer website, so I had to speak with a rep to only give me Dexter axle’s phone number.

2) The first location for calling Dexter axle couldn’t help me either, so they gave me the number for where they were manufactured (tandem axles).

3) The 3rd call matched the serial numbers of my axles finally and gave me the kit # to order from etrailer.

4) The holes in the lift brackets were drilled for a minimum of 8” o/c, which was perfect for the trailer, but the axles were drilled at 7.75” o/c. This meant having to slot mill all 4 bracket for the axles .25” on each side for bolt clearance.

5) The original nuts and bolts that came off of my axles and trailer were .5” dia bolts, but the ones that came with the kit were WAY too big meaning I needed to either oversize (ream the axle and trailer holes) or buy new bolts, which is what I did.

It has nothing to do with etrailers service. Just wanted people to know what they’re getting into with these lifts sometimes! :

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.




by:

Installed lift on Lance 1985 to get the extra clearance for taking the trailer off road.

Product is great, and it was a simple install (took right at 3 hours). I had to buy a 15/16" wrench in order to fit in the tight space, especially when doing the bolt in the side while the bolt to the bottom was in place. Torquing the nuts was a chore now that I am getting older. :)

I used two jacks, one on each side of the axle to lower it uniformly (floor jack and bottle jack). I used two jack stands to hold up the trailer with wheels removed. (I had to raise the jack stands on wood to get the required elevation when I went to mount the tires.) Tools required were 15/16" open end wrench, 15/16" socket with 1/2" drive ratchet, 1/2" drive torque wrench capable of 150 ftlbs. I also used a 1/2" drive adjustable cheater bar to pry the existing bolts loose.




by:

Fit perfectly and was not too difficult to install. Arrived quickly and really increased the ground clearance for the trailer body and attachments. Very happy!,


Comments
Great, the trailer still pulls like a dream but we have way better ground clearance for taking it boondocking. Installation was pretty straight forward.
David - 03/08/2022


by:

Great kit, great instructions. Took two of us less than two hours to install including relocating brake wires. (However the trailer floor had been removed to resolve other issues and I do trailer repairs for a living) This is exactly what my enclosed trailer needed along with going to a 225 series tire from a 205 I achieved 3” of lift. There were a couple scratches in the paint on my parts but if a guy was really worried a quick touch with a spray can would be fine. I put em on as is. etrailer had these parts to me in under a week on the left coast.




by:

Don't expect the paint on the Brackets to be whole, there is no way they can be with how they are packaged. Regardless, this is a very easy to install lift if you have any mechanical abilities and tools to safely lift your trailer. I called to several RV shops in my area and was quoted 800.00 - 2000.00 to install this kit. It took me 2 hours including hooking the truck to the trailer, gathering tools. Very straight forward install and is as described on the website. We have a 2014 Flagstaff Classic Ultra Light fifth wheel which is 1.5 ton towable and with our 1 ton sitting so high at stock ride height, the rear bumper of the trailer was close to dragging at the slightest dip. Well made and easy to install.


Comments
Still working great after a year of use. We have teaveled about 5,000 miles with the lift kit and it has continued to performed flawlessly.
Douglas H - 07/22/2021


by:

Product was excellent and installed easily. Package/box was destroyed upon delivery as it appeared to have sat in the rain for a day or two. Plastic bag holding the parts was damaged as well. All parts were accounted for however.




by:

I needed this axle spacer kit due to insufficient wheel well clearance on the used 2008 Jayco trailer we purchased (it turns out that ~2400 trailers left the factory missing this spacer back in 2008).
These spacers arrived quickly and in fine condition. They fit perfectly. NOTE: Installation went ok, but I did this in a campground, on gravel, and in 95-100° heat, so it was not easy and took me 2 full days. If someone performed this in cooler weather on a hard, flat surface it would go faster.
Very satisfied with the quality and with etrailer (I have used etrailer 3 times prior and have had no problems).




by:

Exactly what I needed. It was pretty easy to install but it did take me about 5.5 hours for my tandem axle. It wasn't hard I just did it by myself and took my time. I put it on my 2019 Rockwood Mini Lite 2503S. Fortunately there were service loops for all my break wires so I didn't need to extend any of them. It was definitely needed. I only gave it 4 stars because the paint job is really poor, just like others have mentioned. Do Not ream the nuts, they are lock nuts and are designed to only go on one way and are tight when threading down.




by:

The Torflex Lift Kit solved my dragging issues! I store my trailer at my house in the country. When I would return, I have to go up a fairly big hill. The rear of the trailer would drag 75% of the time. I destroyed 2 scissor jacks before etrailer installed the lift kit. The etrailer guys were very professional and thorough. The guys adjusted my trailer hitch height to compensate for the lift. I also saw them test driving the trailer by running over some rumble strips. They were making sure the bolts were tight. I am very pleased with the install.




by:

Fit my 2017.5 Lance 2285 travel trailer perfectly. Installed myself over several days (1st day was just making sure I had the TT securely and safely raised--you basically have to lift it to where you have 3 inches of clearance below each tire). Take your time, buy or borrow the correct jack stands, jacks, torque wrench. etc. Read all of the instructions BEFORE you start.

Safety first! You will find yourself under the TT at times. In my opinion, a level, hard surface is required to properly and safely support the TT.

During install, I did notice slight side-to-side shift of the axle. Watch for this. It's easy to correct if you haven't already torqued the bolts!

These arrived with scratches exposing bare metal, so I touched up the paint before installing to help prevent rust.

Very happy with result. Have driven 150 miles (with TT fully loaded for dry camping) on a variety of roads and speeds and have had no issues.

Don't forget to adjust your hitch too.

This is not what I would call an easy job, especially getting the proper torque on the bolts! If I get another Lance TT, I'll make sure it has the lift kit already installed.

I cannot comment on the installation as I had a mobile mechanic friend install it. 4hrs is what he charged me.
The stance is much improved. I should have done it years ago.

We sold the trailer to family. Th we y have towed for over 1000 miles with NO issues.

Worked great easy install




by:

Very simple install and works great!! I own a 2004 trail lite by r-vision and used these to gain ground clearance for the dump tank. These worked perfectly. Installation was simple. I used ramps to install instead of a Jack. It worked exceptionally well. Completed in about an hour. Drove over 3000 miles last year and stayed over 40 nights and had no issues. I wish I did it sooner.


Comments
Still working well! No issues, glad I made this decision.
John P - 04/11/2021


by:

The product fit my 2018 Lance 2285 camper perfectly. It was a relatively easy install. My only con is that the paint finish on the product is very poor. The paint was chipping off right out of the box. I ended up repainting the kit before installation. I've gone on two camper trips with the kit installed and the camper towed great! Without the kit, I would've bottomed out twice for sure.


Comments
Product has been flawless.
Danielle W - 06/20/2021


by:

Best thing ever! We wanted a lift on our Lance trailer but the available model we bought was missing this option.
We were able to order this from eTrailer and had a local axle shop install for us. If we were handier we could have installed ourselves with the great instructions from etrailer.
Perfect fit and we are so happy with the addition. No more dragging our tail in the driveway and we don’t have to worry about dips in the road anymore.
Same product our Manufacturer installs and the kit from etrailer was faster and less expensive than buying (and waiting) for Lance to send.




by:

Quick shipping, Highest quality parts, Perfect fit, Saisfied with results. What else is there to say?




by:

Very good service fast delivery




by:

I have a roadmaster 2006 toy hauler, roadmaster torsion axles. I was not sure on the fit except the 8 in. hole measurements. Perfect fit, easy install




by:

Excellent service even when it was my fault for ordering the wrong part




by:

The lift kit worked well on my dual axle toy hauler. Spent far more time worrying about how to accomplish the lift safely than it took to do it. One person can do the job, but a friend's willing help was very welcome. The instructions were okay but I found a better & safer way. Torcing the bolts to the required ft. lbs. was a challenge.
I decided the safest way to accomplish the lift was to do one axle at a time. I bought heavy duty, tall, plastic ramps from Harbor Freight. I put a heavy paver behind the ramps to keep them from moving and then backed the rear axle (both sides) up on to the ramps. Then I loosened the front axle and worked on one side at a time with a jack under the axle on that side. After I finished lifting the front axle, I pulled forward off the ramps and repositioned the ramps & pavers in front of the front axle. I pulled the front axle up onto the ramps, and then installed the lift kit on the rear axle.
Thus my 12' tall 26' long trailer was not hanging in the air on jack stands which would have scared the heck out of me with all 4 tires off as per the instructions.

Worked great and easy to install. Got the parts quickly and in good order!!

  • Correct Lift Kit for #10 Torflex Axle
    I can absolutely confirm the correct lift kit for your trailer. Based on your photos, you do in fact have a #10 Torflex axle, and they are compatible with the lift kits because you do not have 3" high-profile brackets (which just means the bracket that attaches the axle to the frame of your trailer is 3" or higher). So the correct lift kit for a #10 Torflex axle will depend on if your trailer has a single axle or double axle: - Single Axle: Torflex Lift Kit # K71-707-01 - Double Axle:...

    The Dexter Torflex Lift Kit # K71-707-01 that you referenced is designed specifically for Dexter #10 Torflex Axles that have a 2,300 to 4,000 pound capacity. For the tandem-axle kit you will use # K71-707-02. Based on my research, it does look like the Lance trailer you are looking at features a Torsion axle but I was not able to verify the exact model/manufacturer. I recommend checking with the seller to see if he can provide this information. This lift kit will raise the trailer frame...

  • Is It Possible To Gain Wheel Well Clearance With Axle Already Flipped
    The general rule is you want to keep 3 inches of vertical clearance above the top of the tire to the wheel well to allow for normal travel of the trailer's suspension. You could try to use longer hangers on the suspension to gain a little lift but it's not really possible to gain 3-4 inches if you already have to the axle flipped. I recommend to use smaller tires.

  • Is the Paint On the Torflex Lift Kits Durable
    The Torflex Lift Kits like part # K71-707-02 do come with a protective painted black finish. As mentioned, the paint can chip if not careful. That said, the finish is not really crucial for most applications which is why the paint is not as durable. However, since you have an aluminium frame trailer it might be best for you to either send the lift blocks off for powder coating or simply apply a few more coats of paint yourself. Once this is done, I'm sure they will be just perfect for you...
