"flipping the axles"

i finally got the info! here's the deal, i've been asking around for a while about lifting my new 3400rl and finally decided to call the keystone factory. they told me ALL of the montanas leave the factory with the "axles flipped" which actually means the springs are placed on top of the axles and not under. in addition, they have a seperate lift kit which raises the montana another 3 inches. this can be purchased from the dealer. it consists of mainly brackets that create the lift. so a big thanks to bob @ the factory! now i just have to figure out why my dealership told me the axles weren't "flipped" on mine?! guess i'll see when i pick it up next week.

i believe it's around $1,000. sounds pricey, but from what i've been told it's an all day job to install and requires a fair amount of welding. you should be able to contact your local montana dealership to find out the details.
