Funny, that's what we say about the SAINTS each year, old joke. They made us proud this year, going to the NFC Championship Game. We love our Saints around here but also our hometown players, Bret Farve and Payton Manning.

New Caravel Axle

Hi Melody Ranch,
We just replaced our 1965 Caravel axle with a Henschen from Inland RV and are very happy with the service from Greg and Andy. Ordered 1/5/07 #10605 10" complete axle - $800.00 plus $185.00 shipping from OH to OR. It was shipped 1/24/07 and received 1/31/07. Dust caps were missing but quickly supplied by Inland RV in 3 days. No instructions, but went in easily with new holes being drilled and shock mounts moved (as explained by Andy). Rides approximately 3/4" higher now. Tires were replaced by TOYO Hyparadial 7:00 x 15 LT 8 Ply Rating Load Range D (2040 lbs max per tire). The best part - no axle/spindle worries, new better brakes and no bouncing! Tony & Linda Starbird

Nice feeling isnt it?

Nice to not have that aching feeling in the back of your mind about a possible spindle separation at the next bump in the road.

I agree too...Inland was right there when I called about my problems at hand.
Stay in touch...I always have a place to park for the cross country crowd...centrally located too.

Starbird,
Since the OE tire is Tire 6.70x15, are you having any interference between the tire and the wheel well?

tire size

I pulled the original 700 x 15 tires (bias) off when I got my Caravel. Put on 225 x 15 radials. 265 x 15 radials would not fit the wheel well. (maybe because of the settled axel?) Radials on Andys recommendation.....Airstream recommedded too.......Lets not let this go to the radial / bias discussion.

The previous owner of our Caravel raised it up 1 1/2" by welding a reinforced steel plate on the axle mount. This gave us 1" of clearance on the lower forward curb side wheel well to tire. Other clearances were just fine. The new axle did not change the clearance. Shocks were changed also to original dimension NAPA/Monroe #94005. New brakes are wearing in quickly.
