I know a lot of you toy hauler guys have raised there trailers by flipping axles or building up the spring blocks.
Can somebody please recommend and good place to take my trailer to have this done in the Riverside Ca. area?
I just got a 2017 Ford F350 and it's a lot taller than my 2008. I'm not sure I can even back under it with the way the trailer is now at level.
Its crazy how high these new trucks are.

Thanks for any help.
Joe A

Flipping is sort of a misnomer. What really happens is that the axle tube is moved from over to under the springs. You need to look at your spring placement now to know what you need to do. Lift blocks are probably the last/worst option.

A little bit of a haul from Riverside but check out Mel's Welding in Vista, CA (North San Diego County).

They do fantastic work.

Hey Joe - Have you measured the height of your rig yet? Make sure that flipping your axels won't make you too tall for bridges & tunnels.

Yikes.... Dave, I'm up in the clouds already. Good point.
I know I did post my height here on RV.net way back when.
I'm going to guess 12-6" ish. Hey my memory sucks these days.
5-6 years ago I could climb up there and check. This time I'll bring one of my boys.

OK new question, Whats a Max height of your trailer ?

Linc, Jims the guy no doubt in my mind after talking to him on the phone. Great guy, had all the rite answers.
Go's in on Oct 3rd.
I found a few old papers I sketched up in 2007, and I think I am 12-6"+/- now.

Very cool Joe!!!!

Glad it is working out for you.

I have 2 buddies that have taken their Warriors to him and the results are amazing.
