How do you lift a trailer?
One common way to lift your trailer is by “flipping” your axles. Flipping your axles just means moving your suspension from below the axle (standard, “underslung” springs) to above the axle (“overslung” springs) in order to create more clearance between the underside of the trailer and the road.

Can you jack up a trailer on the axle?
Remember that safety is a priority and that the axle jacked up on the end does not clearly damage the axle. If you are on a paved road that does not slant, then you can just jack the trailer up using the trailer’s frame.
How do you lift a trailer without a jack?
The method is pretty simple. Raise the tongue all the way and block the trailer frame in front of the axle but far enough back so the trailer will tilt forward when you lower the tongue. This raises the back of the trailer, so you block that up and raise the tongue.
Can you put a lift on a trailer?
Lift kits can be installed on many travel trailer brands. Some brands such as Winnebago give you the option to lift or lower your travel trailer with the included bracket from the factory. Most of the time you would install a kit which would flip your axle giving you more ground clearance.
