has anyone lifted a camper to fit larger tires?

I have a lifted vehicle.. and was wondering if anyone has ever lifted a fiberglass camper.. i know the jacks wouldn't work,, and you would need a ladder to get in it..amongst other things. i am just curious. If so.. post pics. thanks

Registry
I have a 2007 Jeep Rubicon with a 6" lift and 37" Pit Bull Rocker tires. My previous 13' Scamp was lifted by Plasma Cutting the mounting point of the axle, then welding in a 6" I-Beam between the frame and axle. This time I'm going to replace the axle with one I saw posted on this site (I believe it was by Dexter Axles) that has splined shaft/arms. I figured that I will be able to still store my Scamp in the garage with the splined arms up, and do regular road travel at level or zero degrees, and serous off-road trails with a max downward angle.
