'62 Overlander torsion axel saize

We'd like to have our torsion axles replaced. Does anyone know what size we need? Hoping to avoid towing to our installer for measurements and then back again to have them installed. Thank you!

In addition to dimensions and the weight capacity of the axles ....
You might look to see if the axles are welded in.
Airstream switched over from leaf spring axles to torsion axles in 61 or 62.
For a short time after the switchover Airstream welded the axle to the vehicle.
That did not last long, and they changed to bolting in axles.

Even if the axle is bolted in, NOW would be the time to spray with penetrating oil.
