Hi, I don't know the exact measurement, but I don't think a piece of sheet metal of .030" or less would effect anything offset wise.

I thought they were thicker but if that is all they contribute---- shouldn't be a worry

Hi,

Does anyone know what model number centramatic is used for this application? I think I read somewhere that it takes a special model for the airsteams. I am considering them for my 2008- 25 foot Safari. Thanks,

Mike

At our request, Centramatic created the special model for us.

I purchased a set from them for our 2007 Safari 25'FB and their item # on the invoice was 200221Special, AJP-10". The only problem I had was I had to enlarge the holes a little as the unit was hanging up on the threads of the wheel studs and would not slid on without enlarging the stud holes. When you call them give them your trailer's information and they should set you up with the right model.

YOUR trailer will take a standard size c'matic (for 15s/16s) and does't require the 'special' version...

that special SMALLER version might be useful on steel rims or old trailers,

but apparently has LESS counterbalancing capacity.

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f438...tml#post776213

many vendors supply the c'matics and a call to the c'matic company (talk to jerry)

will get you exactly the right size.

cheers

Centramatic states that our special model will balance anything Airstream has ever made in the trailer line.

Interesting how a product can be put down, "by some's guessing".

Testing and/or first hand experience is always the way to evaluate anything.

Guessing, is forming a judgement or estimate of something without actual knowledge or enough facts for certainty, conjecture, surmising.

On the other hand, around the corner distractions designed to redirect attention, is a game, some love to play.

Giving credit where credit is due, without jibberish, or redirect, is usually the true "Airstream" way. Hammering away just makes senseless noise.

Andy
