but I have no idea if they will fit my 1980 caravelle 24.
I will post this question in the brake section aswell.
You must determine if your Airstream has 10 or 12 inch brakes.
Look at the backside of the backing plate where it's attached to the spindle of the axle.
You will find a square or round plate, that holds the backing plate in place.
If it's square, it will have 4 holes, for the 10 inch brakes.
If it's round, it will have 5 holes, for the 12 inch brakes.
