Unhappy Low Riding trailer

I just bought an 06 fleetwood wilderness 25 ft and it sits very LOW,this is when off the truck and level, plus there are two different sewage drains, one before the axle and one after it, Both are very close to the ground. Trailer bottomed when backed into driveway which was not a problem with prior trailer. I can work out a wooden ramp to solve bottoming here, but am concerned about clearances at some campgrounds.

Any changes possible to suspension

Do you know if you have springs or torsion axles? If leaf springs then you can do a axle flip. Not much you can do with torsion axles though.

A axle flip with springs is quite common. They make a kit for it.
