So, will they be manufactured by a subsidiary of Inland RV? If not, where will they be manufactured?

Not sure if they are a subsidiary of Inland, but from what I have learned Axis has hired the former manager of Henschen/GKN. Not sure if this the same "top notch Henschen manager" that was mentioned earlier.

Andy,
Where are the Henschen axles made? In Iowa?

I took a tour of the plant 3 years ago. The Airstream trailer end of the business was a small part. They made axles for everything from Bob Cats to D8 Caterpillars and military tanks.

Henschen is supposed to be back up and running in the Elkhart, Indiana area by Thanksgiving.

Ah, it's late at night, and I am tired.

I will post tomorrow the update about the axles as well as the details.

Please bare with me, as it's all nice.

Regards to all.

Once years ago, I used this exact pick-up line years ago after getting to first base. Sadly, I got picked off on my way to second base.

I don't have all the details, but my new axles are supposed to be ready next week. I am scheduled to pick them up on Tuesday. The new factory is indeed located in Elkhart, IN.
