    Hello, as you can see, I am new to here, and a first time owner of a 5th wheel. I just bought, about 3 weeks ago, a 1996 Sportsman 35' 5th wheel. It was longer than I was looking for, but after camping twice in it, I am glad I went with it. After a few minor items, I have it close enough to perfect for me. I have a 2500HD CC, SB GMC, that sits pretty high. I noticed that the springs on the trailer were under the axle on my Sportsman, and noticed a lot of campers sat a lot higher than mine, due to the spring axle set up the way it should be IMHO. So this weekend I took the suspension out and flipped the axles and put them under the springs. I noticed that the tires have some positive camber now, and was wandering if I did it right, or should I have cut the spring perches off the axle and welded them on the other side...Thanks, and I'll probably have a million more questions...-Joshua
