Options for lifting a 2007 jayco 1206?

Hey everyone.

My wife and I have a 2007 jayco 1206, and we love it. The only issues we have had is tearing off one
Of the stabilizers, and coming close to dragging the frame when getting to put camp spots.
I had seen some information about putting the spring over the axle as it is a leaf spring set up, and getting lift that way. But the 1206 already is set up like that.
So does anyone know what I can do for a few more inches of clearance?

Thanks
Jarrett

I think as the trailer sits, anything much bigger will rub when going over larger bumps. I want bigger tires once I cant get a bit more lift though.

if it already has the flip axle, and it's that low, it probably has a drop axle, you could have a straight axle installed.

Okay It appears to me that it is a drop axle? Here is a picture. And the pop up hooked up to my truck.

Maybe lift blocks and longer u bolts(between the axle and spring)or longer shackles.I know that is how you would lift a spring over axle setup on a Pickup,however I don't know how that would affect a trailer.
