Shock mounts, yet to be welded on. Looking for advice as to whether they should be exactly vertical or if any angle is required.

I tried chasing down who owned who back in June/02. Thor (Airstream) does not own Henschen any longer.

That's pretty interesting. Where else would they be but Elkhart IN. I drove through there a month ago and was amazed at the number of RV and trailer manufacturers.

Did you see they have disc brakes also!

Disc brakes and more!

Not only does Axis Products, Inc. carry disc brakes, they carry “Kodiak” disc brakes. These are the same brakes that will be coming standard on some new Airstreams.



Additionally, just about any brake available is available from Axis Products, Inc. including, electric, electric w/park, electric free back with park, hydraulic in many varieties as well as disc in many varieties including stainless steel. Visit them at www.axisproducts.com

Axisproducts axles

I wonder if Axis could duplicate the mounting flange and shock mount that Henschen uses on the Airsteam axles. That would give us another option for bolt in axles for our trailers. We could then order them with whichever type brake assembly we choose , drum or disk.

Axis Products custom makes axles in capacities of 200-7200 pounds in both torsion and spring configurations. I am confident that with some information or a sample of an old axle the shock brackets and mounting plates could easily be created and incorporated onto axles.



Additionally, Axis Products offers a wide range of trailer parts for sale.

OOP's

OOP's, there is no electric freeback with park, I kind of got ahead of myself there. However, Axis has a huge selection of brakes for sale! Sorry about any confusion!
