Risers made to fit between the Mini Mate Camper body and the axle. Installing these riser spacers will raise the body by 1", which can help add clearance for dropping the jack stands for leveling. Made of a durable poly-wood material, these stands will never rot or rust. This kit comes with 2 risers and 4 longer (3") axle bolts. New Mini Mate Campers already have these risers installed. Only install this kit if your axle is mounted directly to the body without any spacer previously installed. Riser bolt hole centers are 7 3/4" apart. Installing these risers will NOT allow for a larger wheel to be installed. Only a 4.80x8 tire and wheel should be used on the Mini Mate Camper.
To install, raise the camper to the highest position on the jack stands. Remove the axle nuts, lock washers, and washers. Drop the axle and remove the 4 existing axle bolts and washers. Install the new longer bolts with existing washers. Move the axle back in place and secure with existing washers, lock washers, and nuts. Torque axle nuts to 60 ft. lbs.
If you love motorcycle camping the Mini Mate is for you! Light and easy to tow, sets up in just a few minutes, and easily has plenty of room for one (and I'm sure lots of room for 2 and all the things you need to camp. Pulls really easy (Vulcan Vaquero) and stops really easy too. I'm 6'2" and I had plenty of room to stretch out while sleeping and also in the little "dressing area" inside the door. I think the awning is a must and it is also plenty tall. Overall this camper is one of the greatest, best things I've ever bought! I highly recommend it!
My camping trailer was delivered on time and in perfect condition. Uncrating was simple and assembly was easy. The video provided online was most helpful. No parts, nuts or bolts were missing. I am extremely happy with the entire order/delivery process and quality of the camper. Its' hard to describe just how easy this thing tows. Suspension is great. Does not bounce. I keep checking my mirrors just to make sure it is still connected to my bike. Its a perfect match for my Goldwing.
I bought my mini mate this spring. Picked it up on a Friday morning and headed home. I took the skyline drive (105) miles, and the entire blue ridge parkway (469) miles. My total trip was (1965) miles. The camper was great, it rained four of the six nights I camped but not one leak. I love my camper!
