2005 Bambi Axle

I have found a axle taken off a 2005 Bambi with aloy rims and tires. Will this fit my 1963 Globtrotter? I can not measure it yet ontell it is delivered to my place. My trailer has split rims and I thought this would be a good start to rebuild my trailer. They are being sold for $275 axle and $333 for tires and rims. Any thoughts?

The frame width on your trailer is 57 7/8 inches.

The 2006 is wider than that.

The mounting brackets cannot be moved without damaging the rubber rods, plus the overall width of the newer axle is much to wide for your 63.

Sorry.
