AS 1969 Overlander Brakes Approval Documents

Hi all AIRs members

Here in Europe is it very hard to get an AS inspected and approved with Electrical brake system.

But i may have found a little hole, but to get any further i need some documentation for the Electrical brake system used on AS in 1969.

Is it posible to get some approval documents on the brake system ?
Does it excists ?

i hope some can point me in the right directions...

regards
Peter

For cars and trucks many systems needed "approval" or certification from the government as to operation. A vehicle when new would have been tested as to stopping range. However I am pretty sure none of the documentation would be available to a consumer from the manufacturer no matter what year of car and truck. Other than a sticker on all cars and trucks stating something like this ..... "This vehicle conforms to all standrads that were in effect at the time of manufacturing". A 46 year old car or truck may have that sticker and may not.

As to a travel trailer .......... not sure they have the same kind of standards as humans do not ride inside.

The axle manufacturer was Henschen. They may have made their own brakes or used a supplier like Dexter, Wagoner or Budd. Henschen closed almost 10 years go.

We have a 1969 Overlander and the original manual. I am not sure if there is anything inside the manual that may help you, but will look. If so, I will let you know and could fax info to you. May be able to help. Not sure. We are head to an Airstream Rally tomorrow , but will look as soon as I can.
