You will need to order one and have it shipped to you. There are several threads on axles. I suggest a search using the tags of Axel and Installation.

Depending on who you chose to place an axle order with, you may simply need the trailer serial number, or all of the dimensions and specs.

Welcome to the Airstream fam.


Be careful where and who you order yours from, Axis Axel Cannot even tell me, or my broker when I will get mine and it's been on order since 3-24-11 still have no answers to date. that's six weeks and counting.
no hurry, just need to know so we can make changes in our reservations for the season.
and hope to get $deposits$ returned.

Good Luck

Safe Travels

Indy

If you haven't started yet, I would load the trailer with everything you normally travel with and have it weighed. It's a lot easier to specify a new axle if you know what load you will be putting on it.
