Right!

Andy is correct about Hayes not making many torsion axles!

Al-Ko however, is the largest producer of torsion axles in the World. Dexter is the largest in the U.S.A. however outside of the U.S Al-Ko is the king! Hayes is a small piece of Al-Ko Kober.

Additionally, Inland is exclusive on Airstream axles by GKN Henschen for Airstream units 20 years old and older.

Cheers,
Henry

Hayes is fine.
I think this thread sort of went off-topic.
If the axles ride fine then they are good to go.
How do they look from underneath? Do they look to be only a few years old? Anything that looks abnormal?
Is there anything that would make you question what you were told about the age of the axles?
Just keep in mind, a torsion axle is a torsion axle. They have been around for many, many years. It is far from cutting-edge technology. What you put on it to fit a specific application is irrelevant. Any local axle shop can take care of these things; usually they can improve upon them.
If I were you I would worry if I were being told the truth about the history of the axles.

They looked brand new and in fine condition. And I called the RV place and spoke with the service people there and they had all the records of the install. I had no reason to doubt him.

Want to see a real suspension? Check this out: Six wheel independant, an swingarm for each axle, six spring packs and six shocks. Slick!
