Axle clearance is not the same as other things hanging off the trailer. When the tires
go over a bump ( a speed bump, for instance), the axle rises with the tire. Other under-body appliances do not have this advantage. I don't know what kind of camping you do but 10-inches of clearance on a fixed appliance would be a concern to me.
My BF was lifted too (drop to straight axle conversion) but I kept the single step and just put a little step stool under it when I needed it for the kids and dogs. Most of the time we didn't though.
