Newb with new '15 Jaylight slx 154bh looking to lift

Hello all... First travel trailer, first post on forum.. This seems to be a a pretty active and knowledgble forum.. I haven't taken delivery of the trailer yet, but I am already looking at moddin it up some.. I am actually just looking for a bit more ground clearance.. I know the trailer comes stock with the spring under axle and I am looking to convert it into the spring over axle. I just have a couple questions.. Is the spring over kit form Dexter absolutely nescessery or can I simply flip the axle? Sorry if the topic has been beating to death, but I am a newb so take it easy on me.. Also, I seen the Baja edition slx and it obviously has bigger tires/rims, if I remember correctly the tires were 235/75/r15 which is a equivalent of a 29" tire.. I was just wondering if this is the max size for a spring over axle conversion or can I go bigger? I have a couple land cruisers and a 4x4 cummins, so I would like to get to some slightly more remote areas than let's say a minivan.. Is the only differences between the regular jaylite and the Baja edition the spring over and the rims/tires, or are there other differences.. I did notice the Baja edition has more diamond plating, is that it? Thanks in advance and looking forward to spending more time in the forum...

The Baja Edition also includes taller stab jacks and an extra step for entrance. Good luck with your mods.
