Order axles from Dexter

I am in the market for new axles for 1980 Excella. I have been to the Dexter web site but do not see any links to an order form. I have seen pictures of the form in different posts in this forum.

Short of going through a dealer (Camping World), which so far has resulted in replies that indicate they have no idea what to do, how do I find the form on the Dexter web site that I can complete and email to them directly?

Dexter uses distributors. Camping World is one and guessing you live near Los Alamos, Central Trailer Supply would be another. I got the form from my distributor and I recommend you talk with yours. Camping World may require you to talk with the right person to get someone knowledgeable. Central Trailer Supply might have more experience. Don't know since I have never dealt with them. I attached the form I got for you. Since you have read many post on how to do this, I won't go into how to do it.

I am surprised Central Trailer Supply is in business. They are in the middle of a bad area of town. I will give than a call.

I was hopping that I could order directly through Dexter since I see they have provisions for buying brakes and other parts on their web site. I feel I would have better insight into axle questions and delivery issues rather than second hand through a dealer.

Redneck Trailer Supply. Bought our 3 from them, added about 14 degree further deflection, 12” drum brakes, and more weight capacity.. lifted our trailer about 4 inches from the worn ones
Peace and Blessings..

I recommend ordering axles from Colin Hyde. He probably has more experience and knowledge ordering axles from Dexter than anyone else. His prices are fair and you will receive the correct axles for your Airstream.

Contact Dexter. I wanted to verify that my axles were #11 and they sent me the spec sheet for my exact axle based on the serial number. They were very helpful. Seems they would be as helpful for new axles as they were for a lousy lift kit.

Thanks for the input. I am ordering from Colin Hyde. Good price and he was familiar with delivery options available to me in New Mexico.
