Lifting a 74 31' Excella

I have just bought a 74 31 Excella in great condition. I bought it to put on my property in Eastern Wa until I get my cabin built. The road up to the property is a non maintained forest road with some rough spots and 6 switchbacks to negotiate. I have 16 inches from the bottom of the wheel well to the ground and will most likely need an additional 4"-6". Has anyone ever lifted an Airstream of this size.
With the additional lift I will need to install a cross member for more stability. Can the torsion arm be adjusted to gain any lift.

The torsion arms are fixed.

You might do better to have the trailer flat bedded to your site.
