LIFTing a 20ft Class C


Can I lift my RV from the rear bumper with my forklift? I want to level it, and driving it to do so is not an option.

confuseTry a floor jack under the axle......the bumper was designed for impact not lifting on most RV's....you stand a good chance of bending or twisting the frame with a fork lift

 I dont have access to a floor jack big enough.. I guess I'm going to have to buy a couple of bottle jacks then..

I'm with Mike, a couple of cheap Piston Jacks will do the trick...
