Henry,

It doesn't appear that Henschen sells retail. I am sure they would refer one to a retailer based on their website. And I thought you would know, since you retired from that business.

Exclamation Nope

Action,

When I retired - Henschen would still sell the newer axles (1981 and up) direct to the public (prior to the OEM change that they have made).

What I don't know is what an Airstream customer, 1981 and newer, does to get an axle - is Airstream Parts and Service handling this or does Henschen make exceptions to the OEM rule (I kind of doubt it).

Any insight would be appreciated - I love to learn!

Thanks,
Henry

Henry, a suggestion: please give Airstream parts a call, ask them your question, and share the answer with us! Both you and the membership will get the answer from the horse's mouth instead of having to speculate!

Question I may

Roger,

I was hoping with the thousands of members on the forum, that one that has encountered this situation might chime in to educate us.

However - if not - I just may call! Good suggestion partner!

I pride myself on shooting straight - if I don't know, I ask.

Regards,
Henry

I think it would be a good idea. It would certainly be more authoritative than one of us saying "well, I think..." and it would get an answer to the question much more quickly than waiting around for someone who's done it to answer.

Roger,

Good point! I think that right after Christmas I've got a call to make.

Thanks for sharing!

Happy Holidays,
Henry

The word is in!

All,

I heard from Airstream, they inform me of the following:

You can actually buy the axles (1980 thru 2005) from a dealer or through the Airstream Parts and Service Center.

I hope this helps,
Henry

Henry.

We also sell from 80 up to current axles for Airstreams.

The big difference is our price, is far lower than the factories.

Good Info!

Andy,

That's good to know.

I know that you can't talk price on the forums but I appreciate the information, as do others I am sure!

Merry Christmas,
Henry
