I used the one for the #10 Dexter axle. It's a casita product on his page. Product ID 610079216846. Looks like Jim is updating the page for LL products. I talked to him on the phone prior to ordering and he was a really nice guy. If you are looking at purchasing, I would give hime a call to see what will match your axle set up. You owners package should have the axle type in a separate manual. I think the LL page also lists the axle type on the product description for each trailer. message me and I can send you some install pics. I think there was also a guy who put a post on here for his vrv toy hauler-he had some good pics too.

This one may also work for you.  The reason I posted this link is that the U channel may be easier to install the bolts thru than the orbital kit's box tube (on some trailers). My 13 RDB had the plumbing right next to the axle mounting bracket, making it very difficult to get enough clearance to get the bolts through in to the box tube. Maybe check underneath before you order. (Jim, if you read this the side bolts could be 1/8" shorter to ease the install)

That being said..the orbital machine works kit was absolutely bombproof and the powder coating was awesome so no complaints there, it just took a few more grunts and a bit of extra time to move the plumbing out of the way.

thx

Unfortunately they don't make those bolts 1/8" shorter - would have to be 1/4" shorter and then they may not be long enough which - I'm sure you'll agree - is a lot worse.
Glad it all worked out for you!

I just purchased a 2017 Camplite 11FK with off-road kit.  What kit do I need to order?
