Only if you use aluminum wheels, steel wheels are not a problem.

I have the T03-6555 Sendel wheels and 16" Michelins on my 2002 Classic 30 slideout. I'm planning on replacing the drum brakes with Kodiak discs. I'm assuming that since Airstream uses this combination on the new Classics and provides disc brakes that the Kodiak calipers will fit. Can anyone confirm or refute this?

Thanks,

Al

2017 23FB has 15" wheels and same axles as my 25 footer

I looked at a 2017 23FB Flying Cloud today that has not only 15" Marathons, but also the same axle number as my 2014 25 Foot International. Date of manufacturer... June 2016.

Airstream, Jackson Center finally did something great to this wonderful shortest double axle trailer. Better tire options and Dexter axles that will last.
