New Brakes

I have a 1961 Globetrotter that is in need of new brakes before I can travel any more. The old brakes measure 12x2 does this year use Dexter brake parks. If so is the part # I need #23-105 & 23-106. I have attached a picture of the old assembly

Brakes assemblies are standard per size. Replace the complete backer plate. It is a lot cheaper than rebuilding.

There are, at this point, 2 types of electric brakes available, from many sources.

You can purchase regular electric brakes, or "self adjusting" electric brakes, which cost a little more, and are relatively new to the RV industry.

In either case, they will work great for your Airstream.

Rebuilding the old "round type magnet" brakes, is not cost effective, plus some of the parts are no longer available.

Standard and Nev R Adjust at a very reasonable price. They shipped ours quickly and were good to deal with by phone:
