You might be able to put lift springs and larger tires on your trailer?? On my friends F350 with 315's or 35's he still tows his fifth wheel, all he did was get the spring shop to add a leaf into each pack and re arc them, and added larger tires and he manages?

I have a buddy in the RV technician program at the college and I guess were he's been working in Surrey over the co-op terms, one of the things they did was spring overs on some of teh 5th wheels, relatively inexpensive, don't know if it would work for yours though

I'll concur with the spring over. We had to do this on a 5th wheel we took up the logging roads. It's easier than you think, and fine pulling it at highway speeds.This would give you a few more inches to work with definitely

Axle flip(SOA) and lift blocks or extra leafs will do the trick. All RV dealers and shops do these now since trucks are getting taller and taller.
