Jeff you do know that the distance between the axle and the ground doesn't change even with a lift kit. Right? It only lifts the body.

Still trying to get a feel for what this lift really might mean visually...if you find any 19's or others with the lift kit a sideview pic would be greatly appreciated. At least one upside of digital photos ..no wait for the negatives to be processed!Thank you




No problem. It's an aftermarket lift of about 2 5/8". Dave and Sarina's 19. Bought from Jane and Lori from Morrow Bay - who moved up to a 21.

Note also that those are 14" wheels, so the visual effect of lifting it would be slightly less with the now standard 15" wheels. Dave comments that he thinks the gas mileage is affected somewhat by the trailer sitting higher as well.

This is now or third weekend using it. It does the job done, but we are still looking forward to our new Escape.

Some photos of the dinner provided by Escape Trailer Industries last night. They had the dinner catered this year and there was plenty of food for everybody - even seconds. A great time, but the clubhouse was LOUD....lol.
