Airstream hitting bottom

Our new Airstrem Sport keeps hitting bottom as the trailers are pretty low. We are constantly putting boards under the wheel so it will not scrape. Any solutions that work???

Yes. Dexter 3" axle lift kit. Many of us have done it. Best upgrade ever. Bolt-on application. You can use the search bar to find a bunch on threads on this topic.

Kits are for two axles, there is a 1/2 kit for sale in the classifieds right now.

And just to answer the question everybody asks--no, it doesn't cause handling to deteriorate. I had it done to my 27 FB a year or so back, and it has been great. Boondocking is much more pleasant when you don't have to worry about scraping on every little dip or rock. (Not to mention service station driveways.)

I have the 3” lift, works great. But. I still need drop my ball to the lowest possible position on the shank when i back in my driveway. That will lift the tail of my 32’ Excella enough to clear the very steep initial rise from the street.
