This is it after a few Boston Lagers, with some help from a buddy. The ole' Rocky Mountain lift..... It went from me not even needing a step to get in, to 27" to the floor.

The idea behind is to make it a bit easier to defend in case of Zulu attack, right?  Well, you'll want an inner redoubt of mealie bags, and get rifles to the walking sick and wounded within the trailer.  I would pour the beer on the cooking fires...no need to make the Zulus a present of fire!  Keep the bugler at arms length to sound for retreat into the redoubt.  Look to your front, mark the orders, mark your target when it comes.

What are you waiting for?!  Come on!  COME ON!!!!

   The how.... Flipped the axles and put them on the bottm of the springs, as opposed to sitting on the top. (where they belong)
 
  The why..... Because I could. Ok, seriously, a lot of people do that out here. mainly because when you pull these up mountain roads, you really need the extra clearance. It's pretty standard out here, when you buy a camper, the axles get flipped right away. Before the flip, there was just enough clearance under it's rear bumper to slide my foot under. Try dragging that up an old dirt mountain road.
   And, as a plus, the brewery should be here this week! WOOHOO!!!
