Caravel axle sizes

Hi all

I have to move our 1966 caravel to get it registered this weekend. In the medium term I will be replacing the axles, however to just get the paper work done I'm going to repack the bearings and maybe replace the brakes. Can someone please tell me what seals I need and what size of brakes etc..?

I wont be able to get to the airstream until the weekend, so I can't go investigate on the actual trailer.

Thanks everyone,

Caius

You might get the answer you seek. However travel trailers are not like cars and trucks. Many times the year make and model mean nothing when buying parts. It is the old part that determines what is needed. In my case I took the old seal to NAPA and they matched it up and got me 4 new seals.

Hope you find what you are seeking.

There are 2 differnt sizes of grease seals that was used on that model.

Best way is to determine the inner and outer bearing numbers.

With that info, we can help you.
