1 inch axle spacer

Anybody ever add an axle spacer to raise the trailer? I'm thinking raising mine about an inch or so it would make the trailer ride about level.

up up up

I Added a 1 1/2 inch spacer to the axles on last trailer to level it out, no issues. Every one speaks of the horror of raised center of gravity and unstable camper around corners and voided warranty. But you put the Correct track system on and it raises you 2 inches and no one seems to mind that and will not void your warranty not sure why. Blocks are sold online for your specific purpose. But I made my own from raw steel bar stock, piece of cake. You might have to use longer U bolts but they`re cheap to. Sold at Jegs motor sports

Thx BHSGTO, my thoughts exactly. Like your trailer. Those have a great floorplan and have storage for days.

use only steel bar.
same width as the spring pads. and get a new center pin to bolt the bar stock to the spring pack. keeps it from shifting ( both spacer and axle.).
