Best person to buy replacement axles for vintage airstream

Who is the best person to consult with (and purchase) new axles from? We have a 64' and I'm thinking I'd like to do this upgrade.

Ditto, Colin Hyde. He knows his stuff and can fix you up with correctly spected axles with the shock mounts also properly attached in the correct configuration.

Where are you located? I bought new axles for my 1969 Sovereign from P & S Trailer Service, Helena, Ohio (www.pandstrailerservice.com). They did a great job and the trailer tows perfectly. They have done other work for me and I am very satisfied with their work.

And, Colin Hyde for us also. Replaced original Henschen axles last year for our '73 Sovereign and have been very pleased. For us, Airstream sits about 2" higher so plan on adjustments to WD setup.

Call Andy at Inland RV. He says he can supply any vintage A/S with Dexter axles made to fit. If you do go with Inland, post again and let the rest of us know how it went.

The poster is from New Jersey

So we gave him the best local supplier/installer. Inland would be a 120 hour round trip.
