Question Henschen axles marketed by Inland RV?

If you have purchased axles from Inland RV I would be interested in hearing about the success of your transaction. Were all goods as promised? Any advice for consumers purchasing Henschen axle's from Inland Rv? Tks, Z.

I would buy axles from Andy again.

There were a few bumps before the dust settled, but I am happy.

You can read the complete tale here.

Axles from Inland RV

I gave them my serial number.
They gave me a price and delivery.
I gave them a check.
They shipped it within 2 days of their estimate.
New axles fit like a glove. It took less than one hour for two axles.

Any other questions?

I echo the last two folks. The axels arrived without delay, and were an exact replacement. I replaced both, by myself, in about 3 hours. I purchased the complete setup axels, brakes, bearings, and all. It is the way to go.

I have replaced axles on an Argosy 20, Caravel, and Sovereign from Inland Andy and Henschen. All the axles fit as advertised.

A little work to replace but not bad

Replaced under mine a few years ago. Here's a link to what we were discussing at that time.

I ordered axels las year and everything went well. The axels were delivered promptly. There was a fuel surcharge from the shipper, all heavy goods were getting fuel charges from the frieght companies. Everything from inland was as quoted.

I purchased Axles from Andy. I have already received the mounting hardware(new nuts and bolts and washers) last week. Although I really couldn't afford Henshens I bought them anyway. I'm getting complete axles.Unfortunately I ordered at the peek of their(Henshen) busy season. My axles are scheduled for delivery on or before the 4th of July. It is my understanding that their trailer orders tripled and the ag orders quad-droopuled this year. They are working 3 shifts to try and meet the demand. Total time is about 6 weeks from the day I sent Andy the check. Dont worry if U order Henshen Axles they will be more presision then their competor and fit perfectly. U pay a little more for quality made to fit excatly axles. I hear their competitor don't hold the tolerences that Henshen does.
I am more fortuneate than most. there will be no shipping or fuel charges, they will be picked up at the factory by my truck.
Oh one thing I forgot to mention Im 70 yrs young I will change these axles myself. STAY TUNED!

I gave Andy my vin, he corrected me, I looked again, he was right("it must be an I, not a 1"). He gave me a price for two axles with brakes-the same price as on his web site. They shipped when he said they would, they fix perfectly. No problems, I would use him again.

what they said... ordered with serial number, perfect fit, just a few hours work and a big payoff afterwards.

Rivet Axle replaced at Inland+ a week ago last Friday

I had my new axle installed at Inland RV by Greg- Great job! He gave me a great deal of information on our Caravel- I feel much better knowing I have a brand new axle under our trailer!! It did great on the road test home- 250 miles

I hit a curb and bent a spindle on a my 2005 Safari, gave inland the sn/pn of the axle and had a exact replacement in no time. The axle was half the price quoted by 2 Airstream dealers. No problems. Also bought a wheel and tire.

Inland/Andy has one of the better reputations around A/S.
