Video Transcript for Dexter Axle Trailer Axles K71-725-02 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the TourFlex Lift Kit. This lift kit is designed to raise your trailer frame to provide 3 1/8 inches of additional clearance between the trailer frame and the axle. This is ideal for trailers needing to gain a bit more ground clearance. Again, it raises the trailer frame 3 1/8 inches off the axle. This is designed for use on trailers with tandem number 12 TourFlex axles, with a 5,500 pound to 7,000 pound capacity. It works on side-mounted axle systems only. And the spacers are constructed of a durable steel construction, and they have a black paint finish.

So with this kit, you get four frame spacers, and you get all the necessary installation hardware needed to complete the process.Basically, what happens is . the way this attaches is let's picture as if my trailer's going this way. I have the front of the trailer and the rear of the trailer. So the flat side faces the wheel assembly. The internal side would face the underside of the trailer.

And then, basically what we have is we have hardware to attach to the top of the axle. Then we have hardware . We have these holes here, so we have the necessary hardware to also attach to the frame of the trailer.Each side of each spacer is gonna have two attachment points: One on the bottom, which you're gonna attach it to the axle, one on the side, which would attach to the trailer frame. It's got the welded-in supports. It's a nice, strong, durable design.When it comes to the overall measurements, measuring edge to edge, each one measures the same.

We're looking at 12 inches long. Overall height 3 1/8 inches, that's where we get our clearance measurement from. And then the overall depth is 2 1/2 inches.That's gonna do it for today's look at the TourFlex Lift Kit. Again, these are designed for number 12 TourFlex axles, with 5,500 pound to 7,000 pound capacities.

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

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

I bought a 26' car trailer to haul UTV's in but it was way too low to access a lot of the areas I ride. I contacted E-Trailer and they had the perfect bolt on kit at a great price for my torsion axle trailer to raise it 3 1/8" which will make a huge difference. All bolt on as if it came from the factory that way! I am a repeat customer and will always go to etrailer for my trailer needs, I currently have 4 trailers so there's always one in need of maintenance! 451643

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Review from a similar Dexter Axle 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. 522256

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

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 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!

Review from a similar Dexter Axle Torflex in Accessories and Parts


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

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

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

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

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

Installation was simple, although since I didn't have the right socket it took a bit longer than expected due to a trip to the hardware store. Make sure to have a 24mm (15/16") deep socket for the bolts, plus a 1/2" drive extender to make your install go smooth. I used two bottle jacks to lift the trailer, then a floor jack to help drop the axles when needed. Good quality parts and very clear instructions, I would recommend this kit. 652996

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

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

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

  • How to Pick Out Torflex Lift Kit for Trailer Based on Torflex Number and Capacity
  • The Torflex Lift Kit part # K71-725-02 that you referenced is designed to give a trailer with number 12 Torflex tandem axles with a capacity of between 5.5 and 7k capacity a 3-1/8 inch lift. If that's what your trailer has then this will work for you. In case you have a different axle setup we have the part # K71-707-02 which is for number 10 torflex axles that are rated between 2,300 and 4,000 lbs, the part # K71-723-01 which is for 9 Torflex axles with a 2,000-lb capacity and # K71-724-02...

  • How to Decide Which Dexter Torflex Lift Kit to Use on New Trailer
  • To identify the type of Dexter Torflex axle you have on your trailer, there should be a tag or plate located somewhere on the axle itself that lists the part number and weight capacity. The weight capacity should be a good indication of what type of axle you have. For example, the Dexter Torflex Kit # K71-724-02 is compatible with #11 Torflex axles with a 4,100-6,000 pound capacity. For #12 Torflex axles with 5,500-7,000 pound capacities you will use # K71-725-02 and for #10 Torflex...

  • Lift Kit Needed for Lippert 7K Torsion Axle
  • We do have a lift kit for your Lippert 7K torsion axle but the Dexter Torflex Lift Kits like part # K71-725-02 are designed to fit specific Dexter torsion axles. For example, the above mentioned kit will only fit a #12 Torflex axle that has a 5,500 - 7,000 lb weight capacity. The correct lift kit for you is part # LC270682 if you have a diamond torsion axle or part # LC382741 if you have a square torsion axle. These provide you with a 3-1/2" lift and are for single axle applications.

  • Is a Lift Kit Available for Rockwood Fifth Wheel Trailer?
  • Your wife is not wrong because an inch of clearance is not going to be enough; there needs to be roughly 4 inches for the suspension to have enough room to travel.
