I know there has been previous discussion about raising caravan height for more clearance (I just need 50mm or so) but I can't see any discussion about doing this with Simplicity. From what I can work out i have straight frames not overlay so the stub is welded directly into the trailing arm not over the top. Any ideas for raising the van as she sits a bit low for ruts, corrugations and rocky tracks/creeks. Any advice appreciated.

try talking to G&S chassi in Melbourne. They are making bolt on independent suspension systems for caravans and this may be alot easier than what you are thinking of doing. You will just have to weld on the mounting points.

single or dual axel ? if it's singke you should be able to make some longer spring hangers I done a 50mm lift on a trailer and a 40 series cruiser once I doubled the thickness of steel in the replacement hanger and added 5mm to the width just to be safe and used new bolts and bushes. The axel will move forward a bit as well.
