Coleman 300TQ axel flip

I have searched all over this site for info and have failed to find it. I want to flip the axels on my 2016 300TQ and need any info on kits. It would make it a lot easier to get into my deer and elk camps seeing as some of the roads are a little dicey.

Any and all info/advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Buy an over slung axle and sell yours. The time, effort, and cost for spring perches is not worth it. You can change and axle in an hour by yourself.

I’m guessing I could find a how-to video on YT...?

I had the RV shop flip the axles on our TT. I think it was around $400 parts and labor. I can follow directions but this was a project way beyond me. It raised the trailer about 4 additional inches from the ground. It makes the step from stairs to the ground quite a drop, we bought a nice stool designed for this purpose that is worth every penny. https://www.amazon.com/Aluminum-Plat...20443414&psc=1

I believe Dexter is the brand name of the parts kit.

If what you want to do is raise the ground clearance, drop one end of the springs from the axle, roll the axle back, reconnect the spring and use the same ubolts to reconnect the axle. One problem, there is a locator pin that locates the axle on the spring, you lose that. They have done this on cars for many years.

I have a 2016 300TQ as well. The springs already sit on top of the axles. If you flip them you would actually lower the trailer. You could try lift blocks or springs with more arch. Flipping the axles is not an option though.
