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.

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!

Been across the country and back, no handling issues whatsoever, can’t tell the difference from stock. It’s a keeper

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


Just recieved items and will be installing them in a couple of months but everything looks great and came with instructions. I will send a follow up review after install and use. Thank you

Great easy to install one side at a time added needed ground clearance to my trailer
Dwaine A - 12/23/2022


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.


The lift kit was exactly as described and arrived quickly. Thanks!

The Dexter Lift Kit has been great. Inexpensive to have it installed and it added about 2 inches of ground clearance. Great for bad roads. No loss of stability.
Larry - 12/19/2022


works as advertised. easy to install improvered ground clearance after added a generator.


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.


This is exactly what I needed to add the little extra lift to my trailer to match my lifter Jeep.


Could not believe the very good build quality.
all the way. Great product.
This will help our problem with our steep driveway.



Quick easy install. Took about 2 hours to do both sides.
Having an impact wrench make it easier, but it can be done with hand tools.

One photo shows the lift kit installed. And the second shows to wheels not tucked up in the wheel well. (sorry I have no before photo)


Can you believe that etrailer asks for reviews after a year? That's confidence in their products! The Torflex Life Kit for my 2014 Casita 17 Deluxe Independence has worked great. I no longer drag going through dips and up my steep driveway.


I installed the K71-707-01 lift on a 2017 Airstream Basecamp. It took a little over an hour with help from a friend. The minimal paint chipping on the lift blocks was easily remedied with black spray paint in 30 seconds. Hardly something to worry about. The key to install is having a short socket for the bolts as little room exists between brake drums and other parts of the assembly. A pair of vice grip pliers is also very helpful in holding the opposing side of the bolt from spinning while tightening/torking the nut in place. Lastly, be sure that you have two wooden blocks to set the loosened axel on after detaching. If you set the blocks 3” below the axel while jacked off the ground, the lift blocks slide in place perfectly. Super easy and inexpensive modifications.


Perfect fit - added the extra clearance needed. Before and after photos attached.
Also went from 14"to 15"wheels.


Have a dexter#10 on my 16’ Casita deluxe model. Fit just as it should, paint on brackets was already chipped but..who really cares. Not a chance they’re powder coated, looks like spray paint. Highly recommend backing whatever trailer you’re putting these on, up onto wood blocks or bricks to achieve the height of the lift first, that way you only need to lift the trailer high enough to get the blocks out and you’re ready to install. Also I used a square underneath the trailer to mark alignment points for after the lift was installed to insure the axle was indeed aligned with the trailer. This lift kit was cheaper than an 8” drop hitch for my truck, highly recommend it!!


The trailer looked completely different after using the kit. I was able to make tighter turns into driveways when going over bumps because of my increased height. Even though I had access to air tools, the installation was a breeze and took me no more than an hour per axle. Overall, I was really pleased with the product's performance. My recommendation goes out to anyone who owns an Airstream and needs more ground clearance.


This lift kit is absolutely an asset to the performance of our RV trailer! No more scraping over hills and bumps. Definitely worth adding to our trailer which originally was way too low.


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.


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.


Kit was just what I needed. Was able to install it myself, the only difficult part was getting the trailer completely off the ground and placing solid jack stands. Otherwise super easy install with regular tools. Gained about 2 1/2 inches on clearance.


Great product easy installation fast de livery


Package arrived quickly and tracking communication was great. The install took a couple of hours and was easy due to the great instructions. I will agree with another review in saying you better have some upper body strength if you are using a torque wrench. 130-150 ft lbs takes some effort. The parts fit perfect and gave me the lift I needed.


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


179SE riverside Retro:
Simple installation
and good quality.
Arrived in good time and took an afternoon to install by myself. Lifted the trailer up as I go a lot of places off road. Takes away a bit from the retro look as the old trailers were pretty low to the ground but the benefit of ground clearance makes up for that. Strongly suggest this if you go off road as it brings sewer drain up which is the low point of the trailer.


Customer service on this order was exceptional right from the start. Received the right product, in a quick timeline, (with free shipping!) to add a lift kit in our 2019 GeoPro Camper. Product install was super easy and did it right in my driveway. Will definitely do business here again!!!!

  • Determining if Torflex Lift Kit Can Be Used on 2015 Lance 2285 Trailer
    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...

  • Lift Kit for a 2002 Hi-Lo Camper with Torsion Axle
    If the bolt holes on your torsion axles side mounted brackets are 8" apart on center then you are going to want to use the Torflex Lift Kit part # K71-707-01 for single axle trailers or part # K71-707-02 for tandem axle trailers. As long as you do not have 3" high profile brackets these will be an excellent option for you.

  • 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:...
