Have it shipped to a friend in the USA, and pick it up from them.

Many Canadians do that.

I have used this outlet in the past with good results. What you will pay extra for Canada shipping would offset any costs involved. And the border crossing is not a big deal.

Well I've got a mailing address to Bellingham on the other side to make things easier

I need to find measurements for a 62 globetrotter... Time to scour the interverse to try and dig it up... First timer here

Original was 3200#, 22 1/2 arm angle, 57.875" outside to outside mounting bracket dimension and 73.75" hub face dimension, if you go with a Dexter you'll have to start at 3800#, (you can go up to 6K with this axle), #11 tube, and enlarge the existing notches in your mounting bracket, when going to the bigger tube the original Henschen axles increased the hub face to 75 1/2". You'll either want to stay with the original low profile bracket, or if you want more height you can ask for the high profile bracket, giving you 1" more and possibly increasing the arm start angle to 35
IMO.....the Dexter is a much better product than anything else out there.

The original axle was 32oo pounds.

In 1965 it was changed to 4000 pounds.

Having the serial number available is a great help when ordering an axle.

Also, stay with 12 inch brakes.

You can upgrade them to self adjusting brakes.

A higher starting angle will make it easier to hook up to your tow vehicle.
