Spacers, will not help anything, if the rubber rods within the axles have expired.

The part number for the axles for a 1978 Excella is 20637.

Now your Airstream will enjoy that "soft" ride.

That was a great recommendation by Greg at your facility to go with the 35 degree angle. Replacing the axles was the best investment we have made in our trailer. So far almost 3 years on the Henschens and no issues.

Thank you.

Ah yes, another Airstream trailer that knows it's in heaven, with that "soft" ride.

And the owners are enjoying it, too.

Good example of win-win.

I intend to buy new axles for my 76 sovereign once I reassemble my new frame, floor and interior, that way I can get an exact weight measurement since I believe it will be heavier than before. I am also lowering the axles 1.5" on the new frame so it won't be such a tail dragger.
