Default Vista/Vintage/Visa Facebook Owners Group

Hey everyone, I'm a new owner of a Vista 17RWD and I've started a facebook group for fellow owners. I came from an R-Pod and the owners group for them is fantastic and I would like to see this one grow the same!

When you join please post a photo of your rig and let everyone know where you are from!

Thank You!

Stephen

Also new to Gulfstream, but not to Travel Trailers. Have a 2011 19ft GRU. Took it all around the Gaspé in July 2016- a fantastic trip. Tows well, but too low to the ground. Damaged two stab jacks on steep entry to parking lot. Have lift kit on order- hope to get it installed soon. Does anyone know the part number for the spray nozzle? I would like to get one before it's time to winterize.

Cheers to all from Southern Ontario- near Stratford.

I just picked up a 2012 visa 19gru and want to add a lift kit. Does anyone have a manufacturer’s part number where I can order kit?

We have a 2011 RGU and want to do the same lift. I need to find out what brand and style axle was used in my trailer. Etrailer lists lift kits for single axle trailers.

On my GS VISA 19RGU, I was able to find the axle manufacturer's label on the axle. It was a Lippert diamond torsion axle. I searched etrailer.com and found the correct axle riser. The riser channels install between axle and trailer frame to increase deck ride height. The cost of the axle riser kit was $64.95. I got free shipping because I added enough other items to get the total bill above $99. I had thought I could do it myself but once I started, I realized I didn't have the heavy duty tools needed to unbolt the axle from the frame and reinstall it. I found a local shop that specializes in hitch installation and trailer sales. They installed the axle riser and only charged me for 1.5 hours labor. With taxes etc. it was $165.00 for the install. The riser lifted the frame of the trailer about 3.5 inches. Now I have no scraping when pulling in and out of my driveway and the sewer connection is high enough off the ground that I can now easily attach the hose and empty the tanks.

Very pleased with how this improves the functionality of our VISA.

Link to riser kit. (Note there are two basic types of Lippert 3500 lb. torsion axles listed - a square style and diamond style. Be sure to verify which version your set up requires before ordering.)
