Video Transcript for Dexter Axle Torflex Lift Kit Installation - 2018 Forest River Rockwood Mini Lite Travel Trailer

Hi there, Forest River owners. Today on your 2018 Forest River Rockwood Mini Lite, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install Dexter's Torflex lift kit. And this is what our lift kit looks like when it's installed. I've got the wheels off so that you can see these spacers in place here between our axle and the frame. That's where it goes. And it's going to provide a two and five-eighths inch lift above our factory suspension from what we had before.

This is going to take our trailer and it's going to lift it up by that amount, which is 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 camp site, 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 trucks 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.This gets designed to work with Dexter's #10 axles. There are also lift kits available for Dexter's #9 axles here at etrailer.com. Where on our particular application here, we're using the #10.

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 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 the 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 to lift it up, it's as simple as placing your jacket 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. Now that we've covered some of the features of our lift kit here, why don't you follow along with me and we'll show you how to get it installedWe'll begin our installation by taking our trailer and we need to lift it up off the ground. We need at least four inches of distance between the ground and the bottom of our tire once we have it lifted up so that way when we put our spacers in, we can still have enough room for our tires to not be touching on the ground so we can get everything back together. We've got ours on a lift here, lifting it up, but if you're doing this at home, you could easily do this with jack stands and a jack. You just want to take your time and be careful and lift it up. If you have an assistant it's best to have somebody help you to can lift it up evenly doing either the front, back, side to side at a time just taking your time and going around evenly.Once you've got it fully supported, I did take the wheels off so you can better see, but the wheels don't necessarily have to come off. You can get a little bit more room to work, but we can get everything we need to, as it's back here a little bit further in. So we're going to go ahead and roll under now and show you where those bolts are. So now that we're underneath, here's our axle here. You can see the two bolts that attach the axle to the frame of the trailer. Our spacer is going to be attaching to the similar location right here.So we're going to need to take these loose so we can drop the axle down, but we don't want to drop it down just yet. We want to start by getting our hardware loose, and then we're just going to leave the bolts in there with the nut just a few threads on. So that way it's going to hold it up. It'll make things much easier that way if we do that now. For our particular trailer here, they're going to be a fifteen-sixteenths size for both the nut and the bolt to get those off.So we're just going to start by cracking it loose. And if you've got power tools and stuff, a lot of times you can, once you get it cracked loose you can use those. Or if you have a set of ratcheting tools, those also work very well.Now again, we don't want to take this all the way off. If your bolt starts to spin on the other side, just use your other wrench to hold it. And it's important that we don't take these all the way out yet because we're going to need to support the axles by either a jack or jack stands before we lower it down because it is quite heavy. So that's why we're just kind of doing our preparation, getting our hardware loose, just to make things a little bit easier when we're going to have to start moving our jack or jack stands around.So now we've got it about right there. That's fine for now. We're going to go ahead and loosen up the one on the other side, the same way, just to where we're pretty close to the end there. And then we're going to loosen up all of the other bolts. So there's two just on the other side of our axle, just like this. And then since this is a tandem axle, we have another axle. So there's going to be two sets of bolts on each side of that axle as well.And the reason why we're waiting to take our time as well is due to the brakes that's on our trailer. If we look just over here, you can see our wires they already don't have a whole lot of slack in them. So that's why we're wanting to just kind of take our time with this, loosen these bolts out and assess the situation. Since we see that those are pretty short, in order for our suspension to have proper travel once we lower it down, we are going to have to extend these wires a bit so that way they don't become damaged.So now that we've got them loose all the way around, we're going to go ahead and get our jack in place underneath the axle here. Just kind of get it to where it just touches it for now just so we've got a little bit of support on it. Then we're going to need to go to our wires on the side. And if you check yours and you've got plenty of slack, then you may not need to cut the wires, but on ours, they're a little bit too taut. So we're going to have to cut them to lower it down. So here are our wires right here. We're going to go ahead and cut it right there in the middle because we want to be able to strip on each side.So we're just going to cut both of them. And the great thing about these brake wires is that they don't really matter which one goes to where. So when we hook them back up, it really doesn't matter. So now that we've got those cut, our hardware that we've got loose, we're just going to finish taking that off. Since we had loosened it all the way up just to the very end there, we can just finish taking these out by hand now. So we're just going to remove these two bolts, get the nuts off of there. And once we've got these loose, the only thing holding this axle up is our jack that we've got under it. So now it's still held up on the other side over there, our passenger side. So we don't have to worry about that side. And we only want to do one side at a time when we're doing this.So we've got those out now. So now we're just going to slowly lower it down. And we just need enough space for our component to fit. So that should be pretty good right there. We're just going to do a little dry test fit here. So here is our new component and it's going to sit like this with the opening towards the outside. If we see the holes here at the bottom of our bracket, it lines up with the holes in our axle. So that's how it's going to attach to the axle. And then these holes here in the back of it are going to line up where the bolts that we had just removed were.We're going to be replacing all the hardware. You do get brand new hardware in your kit. You'll get washers and nuts. If you look at the nut, you see how it's got those indentions in it there. That's going to be the outside because it's a locking nut. You're not going to really be able to start it on that side. So you want to start it like that. And then since the locking nut it's going to stay tight once we tighten it down.So now we can take our bracket and it's just going to sit in between our axle and our frame. You can see that the bottom holes here line up with the holes in our axle and the ones here in the back here are going to line up with the holes that are actually used to be attached to. We want to make sure this opening is facing towards the outside so we're looking right in this cavity. We can then start securing it. We're going to go ahead and slide our bolt through the hole. On the opposite side we're going to place a washer. And then we can follow that up with one of the lock nuts. Once we get this side installed, we're going to go ahead and put the same hardware combination in on the other hole on the other side of this bracket.So now that they're loosely installed. We want this bracket to be up against the bottom of our beam here. So we're just going to use our jack to lift it up. Just trying to get rid of that gap there. We don't want to jack it up too hard because we don't want to bend our axle. We're just wanting to have it just so it's up against it. That's good enough right there. So now that we've got it there, we can go ahead and tighten these down because it's going to be harder to tighten this hardware down. Once we put the hardware in down here, it's going to interfere with getting any socket or wrench on this bolt. So it's just best that we do it. Now we can now go back and tighten up our hardware. This is going to be the same size as the bolts that we had taken off before fifteen-sixteenths.And this is where if you did take the wheels off, it can be a little bit easier. If you're using power tools, you can get those in there a little bit better. And I recommend torquing these bolts now, just because again, it's going to be hard to get any tool on this once we put the other bolt and washer and stuff in here. And the bolt might want to spin on you so you're going to definitely going to want to be able to put something on it to hold it if you need to. And then we're going to torque it to the specifications found in our instructions.So now we're going to get our lower bolts in. So we're going to just lower our axle down just a little bit. And that's just going to give us a little bit of movement and some Slack so we can get everything lined up with our bottom bolts we want to put a washer on both sides of our bolt. So we're going to have one on our bolt like that. We're going to drop it in there, move our axle over till it lines up, drop it through to the other side. On the bottom then, we're going to place another washer and one of the lock nuts.And now that we get this one started, we can go ahead and do the same thing on the other side over here. It's just going to drop down through and once again, washer and lock nut on the bottom. And now that these are both loosely installed, we can go ahead and tighten and torque these down. Your jack this point could come out of the way if you need it to, if it's blocking your tools and stuff. Since we've got our hardware loosely installed, it's not going to fall down or anything like that. And these are also fifteen-sixteenth socket and wrench.And now we're just going to reconnect these. Now it depends on the wires you got here. Since we've got so many wires on this one side, normally I just cut all this mess off and crimp it back together. But there's so many wires here, our regular butt connectors aren't going to do that. So we're just going to extend it from this point here. So we're going to strip back each end of the wires that we had cut. Just going to twist these. And we are going to be using heat shrink butt connectors. You can get those here at etrailer.com. We've chosen the heat shrink because this is outside our vehicle. It's going to be exposed to the elements. And when we shrink it down, it seals up our connections here, ensuring a long-lasting corrosion-free connection.Slide it on. Crimp it on the one side. And the issue is you can already see here, it would not have been long enough. So we're going to need some additional wire. You don't need a whole lot as you can see. So we're just going to get an idea of how much wire we're going to need. We didn't need to extend it much. We only moved it down a few inches. So a few inches is all we really need. So we're just going to cut us off a small portion. We know that the other wire that we're extending is going to need about the same length. So we might as well make them match and use the wire we just cut to measure up another piece.And if you wanted to, since they're all roughly going to need about the same length, you could cut two for each wheel and have yourself a set of these lengths already prepared. So we're going to strip these back. Now we're going to slide it into our butt connector, crimp it down. Grab another butt connector, slide it onto our little extension here, crimp it down. And then the other end is going to connect back to the wire. And again, with these breaks, it just needs power and ground to it. And it doesn't matter which wire goes into the magnet inside these breaks get that power ground, so just pick one of them. It doesn't matter. If you happen to have crossed the wires over here, it's still going to work just like it did before.And then I'm just going to do the same thing with this one here. You see, I put the buck connectors on this one. If you wanted to do the preparation, you could have them all cut with buck connectors, crimped on each end. That way when you go to the next wheel, you've already got your extensions prepped. They're just going to slide on, crimp onto your existing wire and then reconnect it back to the existing wire on your brakes. Check to make sure that all of our crimps held. Everything looks good there. And then we'll use a heat gun to shrink down our butt connectors.Now that we've got everything tightened and torqued on this side and all of our wires reconnected, this side here is complete. So we're going to go over to the other side of our axle. We're going to perform the exact same procedures on that side to get our bracket installed. And then we're going to move on to the axle behind it. And again, just repeat those same procedures. Now that we've got all of them installed all the way around, at this point we can just reinstall our wheels if we had removed them and then we can get our trailer back on the ground, hook it back up and hit the road.And that completes our installation of Dexter's Torflex lift kit on our 2018 Forest River Rockwood Mini Lite.

I bought the lift kit for my dual axle trailer, and it does what I intended. The additional ground clearance is welcome. The installation is simple and the fit is excellent. I've seen several complaints regarding the poor paint finish, and while the paint is not spectacular, I don't spend much time under the trailer admiring the underside, so its not an issue for me. One improvement would be for the factory to drill a hole in the rear gusset to allow the brake wiring harness to be zip tied up and out of the way of possible snags, which would disable the brakes. The customer either can tie the harness through the open bolt hole welded to the original bracket, which holds the wiring in a low position to be snagged, or drill their own hole in the rear gusset of the lift to zip tie the wiring out of harm's way. Details matter, and this one shouldn't be overlooked. 760692

Like others, I observed the paint to be inferior. Much of the surface was scratched and the paint alligatored exposing bits of bare steel. The nuts have indents on one side to prevent backing off once installed. I read some thought this was a miss milling of the nut..it is not. Just be sure to start the nut onto the bolt with the non indent side. Other than the paint, the build is hefty and will probably outlast of all us. 670708

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

Over all I'm happy with the lift kit. (x2) I put it on my 1996 21' dual axial Aerolite trailer. The supplied bolts DID NOT FIT and DID NOT ALIGN with the original bolt pattern. For that reason, the install took a whole lot longer then I thought it would have. I tried to re-drill (enlarge the holes) on the trailer side, as they where the smaller holes. I tried a dremal with multiple different attachments, but ended up filing by hand. So after burning a full Saturday and an extra $100 for nuts/bolts/washers, I had the kit installed. Its been a year now and I'm loving the lift kit. Makes a world of difference in clearance. 725454

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

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

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). 673536

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. 914394

Although I didn’t install this product because I was away from home, it was simple and direct according to the instructions. It took my installer about 4 and a half hours to put it in. It went in as promised with no further alterations. It lifted my 2020 Lance travel trailer about 2 and a half inches. Now I can go into some camping spots that I use to hesitate in approaching. Very good price. 902892

This kit raised the ground clearance of my axles by 2-5/8 inches, and the floor of the trailer, as it's designed to do. It is for someone who wants to travel on the non-paved back roads. I had them professionally installed by a dealer who sells and repairs trailers. 883500

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. 847722

Fit my 2007 Jayco Jay Feather 29D LGT perfectly. The hardest part was confirming what type of axles I have first. Turns out they’re each the #10, 3,500 lb rating. Installation instructions are great with pics and it took about 2.5 hours total for the project. We used two 2.5 ton jacks with jack stands for safety on the camper, plus a third jack to lower the axle and make a gap to fit the kit in place. Very simple and all holes aligned perfectly. After installing, it drives the same on the road, just haven’t taken it offroad yet. Great customer service from eTrailer along the way. 847293

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. 828549

Great product that was easy to install. Had both axles done in just over a hour. That’s with torches and air tools. Hand tools would have taken longer. Still wouldn’t have been difficult though. As usual etrailer has what I needed and shipped it fast. Love this company. 817761

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. 816415

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. 776910

I have had these for a year now I have had no issues they have been great the only thing I would do is when you get them give them a little sanding and repaint other than that they are very good. 766314

  • Difference Between Available Dexter Torflex Lift Kits
    The Dexter Torflex Lift Kits are designed for use with Torflex axles. The differences in the kits we have available have to do with the specific model Torflex axle they are compatible with, along with the number of axles that are on the trailer. The Dexter Torflex axles feature a torsion arm type suspension and attaches directly to the trailer frame. You will first want to make sure this is the type of axle you have on your trailer. The Torflex Lift Kit # K71-707-02 (Tandem Axle) is...

  • How to Tell What Number Torflex Axle is on Trailer
    The Dexter Axle Torflex axles are basically broken up into the following categories: #9 - 1,000 - 2,200 lb #10 - 2,300 - 4,000 lb #11 - 4,100 - 6,000 lb #12 - 5,500 - 7,200 lb Based off of your 2004 R-Vision Trail-Lite Model 8306S being a tandem axle and having a GVWR of 6,253 lbs I'd guess that you have 2 of the #10 Torflex axles on your trailer so you'll need the lift kit # K71-707-02. This gives you a 2-5/8" lift and will fit unless you have 3" high profile brackets. If...

  • Axle Lift Kit Options for 2017 Winnebago Micro Minnie
    I believe the issue regarding why a 2017 Winnebago Micro Minnie can't have its axle flipped is because it has torsion axles, which do require what are essentially spacers but are called a lift kit. The correct lift kit is going to depend on your specific axle; based on my research it looks like your '17 Minnie has a pair of 3,500 lb axles, though we aren't privy to the manufacturer, which is important. So if you have a #10 Torflex axle, which is manufactured by Dexter you need the...

  • Lift Kit Compatible with Dexter #10 Axles on EZ Hauler Trailer with Tandem Axles
    For your Dexter #10 torsion axle, the Torflex Lift Kit - Tandem Axle - 2-5/8" Lift # K71-707-02 is the correct fit. We don't have anything compatible with top-mounted torsion axles so you would first need to weld on the Dexter Axle Torflex #10 Axle Side-Mount Frame Installation Hardware Kit # DX54FR for each axle. With this mount welded to your frame you would them be able to use the lift kit.

  • 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...

  • Lift Kit for a 2018 Lakota Bighorn 4 Horse Trailer
    We do have lift kits for trailers with Dexter Torflex Torsion Axles however, I don't have any information on what specific axles your trailer is equipped with so you will need to find out what axle is one your trailer either by calling the manufacturer of looking for the axle tag on the axle. You can then use one of the following if applicable. 2,300 lb to 4,000 lb Torflex #10 part # K71-707-02 (2-5/8" Lift) 4,100 lb to 6,000 lb Torflex #11 part # K71-724-02 (2-7/8" Lift) 5,500 lb...

  • Determining if 2014 Rockwood Signature UltraLight 8282WS Has Lift Kit for It
    Lift bracket info isn't listed on the axle info sticker like what you attached but what you can do is check out the picture I attached of the # K71-707-02 installed and then compare that to what your axle has. If you see a taller bracket than what's pictured or basically what might look like a lift kit then this wouldn't fit, but otherwise it would.

  • What Does 3 Inch High Profile Bracket Refer to with Dexter Torflex Lift Kits
    The Dexter Torflex Lift Kit # K71-707-02 referenced in your question is designed for the #10 Torflex axle with a 2,300 to 4,000 pound capacity. As you mentioned, the lift kit cannot be used with Torflex axles that use a 3 inch high profile bracket. This is the bracket that attaches the axle to the frame of your trailer. If yours is taller than 3 inches, the lift kit cannot be used. All of the Torflex Lift Kits we have available have this same requirement. I have attached the complete...

  • Will Dexter Torflex Lift Kit Work on Different Torsion Axle
    The Dexter Torflex Lift Kit # K71-707-02 that you referenced is only confirmed to fit Dexter #10 Torflex axles that have a 2,300 to 4,000 pound capacity. It's possible that it will fit other torsion axles like what you have on your trailer, but it has not been officially tested. Looking at the picture you attached of your axle I cannot be sure if it will work or not. I went out to our warehouse to measure the bolt pattern on these spacers and found that the bolts are spaced apart exactly...

  • 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...

  • Install Time for the Torflex Lift Kit # K71-707-02
    If you are comfortable working with tools then the install of the Torflex Lift Kit # K71-707-02 will take you about a day. There is a great customer review that says it took him 6 hours to complete the installation at home. If you will be taking it to a shop then it really just depends on how good the shop is. You may need to just call around and see what they say. A review video and the installation instructions have been linked for you to check out.

  • Do Trailer Axles have to be Aligned After Installing Torflex Lift Kit K71-707-02
    Torflex Lift Kit - Tandem Axle - 2-5/8" Lift Item # K71-707-02 doesn't require that you have your axles aligned after installation but it is good practice to do so. It is actually easier than you might think. Basically, measure from center of the trailer coupler to the center of the axle on each end. Be sure to measure from exactly the same point on the coupler! You want the measurements to be exact up to 1/16 of an inch difference. On a tandem axle trailer once you have the front axle...

  • Lift Kit for a 2014 Lance Lance 1985 Travel Trailer
    Though we have not yet installed the Torflex Lift Kit on a 2014 Lance Lance 1985 Travel Trailer, if you have 3,500 lb Torflex Axles I can confirm that the Torflex Lift Kit part # K71-707-02 will work for you so long as you do not have 3" tall brackets. This kit as you mentioned will raise the trailer about 2-5/8". It is currently the only lift kit we offer for a torsion axle trailer. I have attached a review video for you as well.

  • Available Trailer Axle Lift Kits for Leaf Spring and Torsion Axles
    We do offer trailer suspension lift kits # K71-384-00 and # K71-385-00 for leaf spring suspensions and also some kits for torsion axles. For a tandem axle setup like your Minnie Winnie 2106FBS we do have torsion axle lift kits shown on the linked page. Since your trailer has two 3500-lb-rated axles the kit you'll use is part # K71-707-02, the one you referenced. This is compatible with tandem # 10 Torflex axles rated from 2300-lbs up to 4000-lbs. I recommend verifying with Winnebago...

  • Dexter Torflex Axle Lift Kit for a 2018 Winnebago Micro Minnie 2106FBS
    There are lift kits for Dexter #9 through #12 Torflex axles. On the axle tag there should be an indication of which axle you have. Lift kit # K71-707-02 that you mentioned is for Dexter Torflex axles rated from 2,300 pounds to 4,000 pounds. Your 2018 Winnebago Micro Minnie 2106FBS uses two 3,500 pound axles so it is within that range. Tandem axle kit for #12 axles, # K71-725-02, has a 9 inch hole spacing. This lift kit raises your trailer frame to provide 3-1/8" additional clearance...

  • How to Determine if Torsion Lift Kit Will Fit Winnebago Micro Minnie
    The Torflex Lift Kit # K71-707-02 may be exactly what you need for your Winnebago Micro Minnie 1706FB with tandem torsion axles but we do not have any database of axles and I was unable to find the specific axles on your trailer in my research. This lift kit will require that your Minnie have Tandem #10 Torflex axles, which is a possibility because #10 Torflex axles will have capacities between 2,300 lbs and 4,000 lbs. The Torflex Lift Kit # K71-707-02 will also work with tandem axles...

  • Lift Kit to Raise Forest River Trailer With Torflex Axles
    To lift your Forest River Signature Ultra Lite 8289WS with Torflex axles between 2 and 3 inches, you could use Dexter's Torflex lift kit. Since your Ultra Lite has tandem axles, you would only need to know which number Torflex axles you have to get the correct kit. For #10 Torflex axles with 2,300 to 4,000-lb capacities you'd want Torflex Lift Kit # K71-707-02, which will give you 2-5/8" of lift. If you have #11 Torflex axles with 4,100-6,000-lb capacities the correct part is Torflex...

  • Recommended Lift Kit For 2004 R-Vision Trail Lite Trailer With Tandem Dexter Torsion Axles
    It definitely sounds like your 2004 R-Vision Trail Lite has number 10 axles based on the dry weight and info I can find on that trailer. I recommend you get the Torflex Lift Kit - Tandem Axle - 2-5/8" Lift # K71-707-02. The other axle sizes are way too big for your application, so I'm confident this is the correct kit for your Dexter torsion axles.

  • Alternative to Lifting Torsion Axles
    Unfortunately we do not have any parts that will allow you to lift your torsion axle. As you stated the lift kits we offer will not work with 3 inch tall brackets so while there is nothing I can offer you in terms of lifting your current axle you do have the option of removing that axle and using a Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System like the 4" Lift Spindle w/Flange - Off-Road Tires # ASR1THDS03 which is rated for 2,200 lbs and gives you 4 inches of lift.

  • Lifting a 2016 Winnebago Micro Minnie Trailer
    If your Micro Minnie's torsion axles are Dexter # 10 Torflex axles then use part # K71-707-02 for the lift kit. This kit is specifically made for the Dexter axles. Since your trailer has torsion axles the shock kits you mentioned, the Lippert # LC281255 and the Dexter K71-175-01, will not work for you. Both kits are designed for leaf spring suspensions and not for torsion axles. We don't actually carry a shock kit for torsion axles.

  • Lift Kit for 2018 Winnebago Micro Minnie
    Your 2018 Winnebago Micro Minnie has 3500 lb torsion axles but they haven't been clear as to the manufacturer. If the axles have mounting holes 8 inches on center, then you can use the Dexter Torflex Lift Kit - Tandem Axle - 2-5/8" Lift # K71-707-02. If you have a different measurement center on center let me know and I'd be happy to assist.

  • Mounting Hole Dimension of Dexter Torflex Axle to Determine Lift Kit
    If your Livinlite 28RLS trailer has tandem Dexter Torflex #10 axles then the kit part # K71-707-02 that you referenced is a confirmed fit. The easiest way to verify the fit is to measure distance between the mouning holes of your current axles. If that distance is 8 inches on center then this is the correct kit.

  • Lift Kit Recommendation for 2016 Lance 1985 Trailer
    I was able to determine that your trailer has torsion axles but not the brand or capacity. We know that Lance likes to use Dexter axles so I would be shocked if it wasn't a Dexter Torflex which the lift kit part # K71-707-02 you referenced would be a fit for. Check the axle and see if you can find Dexter Torflex # 10 listed then this would be the correct kit.

  • Tandem Axle Lift Kit for 3,500 Pound Torflex Axles
    Your axle is a 3,500 pound axle so the lift kit you need is # K71-707-02. This is for axles rated between 2,300 to 4,000 pounds. It'll give you a lift of 2-5/8 inches. The # K71-725-02 kit is for 5,500 to 7,000 pound axles.

  • Options That Will Allow You To Raise The Height Of Your Trailer
    The most cost effective option I have for you would be to install a 1" taller hanger. I have linked a page that will display all of our leaf spring hangers for you. The only thing you will want to do is measure your current hangers and choose a set that is 1" taller. You can use the facets to narrow down your selection. The best option you have to raise the height of your trailer would involve installing an axle flip kit if your leaf springs are below the axle. For this, I recommend...
