In my experience a three inch lift is indiscernible from the drivers seat except that the trailer wont drag nearly as often. #JustSayin

That said, I wouldnít pull an Airstream that isnít raised. Itís just so much better!

My next build will be raised five or maybe even six inches from stock.

Airstream design makes it Superior to other trailer profiles !!

Ask yourself why these trailers were low to the ground in the first place. Nor entirely true. [ Airflow around and under an Airstream from a cross wind is not as destabilizing as you think. ]

Crosswinds initiate the majority of loss-of-control accidents. The volume of air allowed under a trailer simply initiates faster rollover. [incorrect for Airstreams !! ]



There’s no free lunch in raising a trailer. Go back and note the NOT expensive repair price by Inland Andy. [ He is a dishonest Charlatan !! ]

If the TT goes over, the TV is likely to as well.



.

The tow vehicle and hitch setup would have more affect on the handling of the whole rig than wind on a raised trailer. The only disadvantage is a slightly higher center of gravity unloaded with all else being equal.
