Adding Self level to Bullet Premiere 29RK?

Has anyone installed or had installed self leveling on a Bullet Premiere, can it be installed and if so about how much would it cost to have it installed?

You need to make sure the frame is designed for an auto level system. You have 2 choices: BAL or Lippert.

Hard to be real accurate with the total price because labor rates are not the same everywhere.

Just the system is dang expensive. Installation will be even more expensive than the system. Might just be more cost effective to buy a new RV with the leveling system. I love that system by the way, but not so much that it would be worth the cost to install one; if I could install myself that is a different story, then well worth it.

With the Bullet being a lightweight trailer, I don’t think the frame could handle a leveling system. Especially not if you still hope to have any kind of warranty

Looks like there is only one choice. That first link to the BAL product takes you here (see pic). And I agree, that frame may be too light for a self leveling system. On all of the Premier's listed on the Keystone web page (that I looked at), every trailer lists "electric stabilizer jacks" as included. NONE listed a leveling system even as an option. Stabilizer jacks and levelers are not the same thing and are not intended to do the same job.

I've not installed a self leveling system on any of my trailers but I looked long and hard into it with my last trailer. The brand recommended to me by one of the installation places does not come to mind and I can't find anything that reminds me of it with google. But, it could be done and was expensive as has been noted. The system and installation labor at that time (about 2017) was in the $4xxx range. Looking at current pricing and current labor rates I figure that estimate would be more in the $6-7k range minimum depending on system cost (pure guess).

The link below is to RV Ugrade store and an Equalizer 4 point auto level system which gives you an idea on pricing for just the system. As others have mentioned I would double check on the frame strength before actually doing it. The Bullet is a lightweight trailer which generally equates to a lighter built frame.
