5er lift??

Hello I was wondering if anyone has had to put a lift kit on there trailer for there tow vehicle sits too tall..
I have a 2010 f250 4x4 and on our old camper I had to do a axle flip so the axles are under the leaf springs. We are getting a new camper tomorrow and I'm wondering if I am going to have to do the same thing or not??
Any info would be great!! Thanks

What kind of camper did you have before and what are you getting now? Is your truck and FX4?

The camper we had before was a 1996 fifth wheel Jayco 26ft and we are now getting a 2009 31.5 BHDS Jayco.
And yes it is a Fx4

The newer Jayco's are coming from the factory with flipped axles. I know my 2011 had it as does 2014, but not 2008 so maybe you will luck out and have them done already. From there you will need to play with the leaf spring mounts or possibly blocks over the axles depending on how high you are.
