You simply don't want to lift a LCI frame. It's not strong enough. Also read the warranty very carefully.

I do agree with you. Im not one of those people that will set up at level with my wheels off the ground, that drives me crazy how people abuise there stuff unnecessarily. I will still continue to do as i do now. When i pull onto a site i will throw a quick eye ball on my side to side level gauge and if it bad enough to require a board, then ill throw down a 2x8 or 2 to aid in the process. I hate the suspension and frame hanging, very unnecessary.
99% of the time we stay in resorts only with concrete level sites, so additional leveling is highly uncommon for us.
The only reason why i would ever intentionally lift wheels off the ground would be for an emergency tire change.

I don't think anyone was bashing Luxe, they make a great product. You asked the question "Why is NH $100k more than a Luxe". So people were answering that.

Everybody has their own value proposition for a particular product and whether its worth the price or not.

I commend you on doing your homework and making a logical decision based on your own wants, needs, and situation. You will be very happy with your purchase!
