TrailerTech: Measuring for Lift
Welcome to TrailerTech!
We’ve heard from a few customers, wanting to know how much they should raise their trailers. This is something that should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Adjustments in your trailer ride height should be made with the consideration that your trailer should be riding level with the ground behind the towing vehicle.
A quick tip to help envision your adjustment in ride height is to find 1”/2”/3” boards to use and back your trailer onto them to see how the overall height would be changed after a Trailer Blocks installation. Depending on your situation and desired lift, you may choose to use ramps, jacks or a combination of boards to achieve the desired result. Staggering boards, as shown in the picture below can make it easier to move the trailer on and off.
Trailer Blocks are sold in 1”, 1-1/2", 2”, 2-1/2", and 3” height variants.
