Flipping axles and total trailer Ht

Hello all,
I had mentioned on another thread that I was considering flipping my axles for more ground clearance. Someone mentioned to make sure I don't go over 12' 4" in total Ht. Is that a minimum bridge Ht or is there another reason for this?

I wouldn't worry about the 12' 4". Most all 5th wheels are at or over 13'. Yours is 10' 4" stock so "flipping" your axles you will still be under 11'.

I was concerned because with the axle flip the AC top will come in at almost exactly 12' 4". I don't know the exact AC height but I am using 18". If 18" is inaccurate I'm still going to be pretty close.

I'm 13'4" stock, so you should be fine.
