Thanks in advance!

Thumbs up Just a thought

Andy

You might want to take a look at the "American Eagle" line..
Their product looks/price are hard to beat plus, I'd swear that it's the same stuff they sell at the A/S factory..
American Eagle

Take a look at the series called 055 under SUV/RV..

ciao

Henschen axles are available with 5, 6, 8, or 10 lug hub and drums, depending on the application.

Both 5 and 6 lug are available for "any" trailer Airstream has ever made.

What size wheel can be used is not a function of the axle, but it is a matter of the tire clearances within the wheel well.
