Available Types of 2K-Rated Trailer Axles


I need a replacement axle assembly for a 1988 StarCraft tent trailer Model: Nova weight:1350 lbs : Axle Mfg: Dexter Type: rubber torsion axle, 2000 lb axle, no brakes attaches to trailer frame with 2 bolts on each side through a triangular plate welded to the axle


Expert Reply:

We do offer standard beam axles for leaf spring suspensions and also Timbren axle-less suspension systems rated for 2K but due to shipping size and weight restrictions we cannot ship torsion axles.

A major benefit to the Timbren systems is improved ground clearance under the trailer. Since there is no axle tube you gain additional ground clearance, or you can choose to have a lower trailer deck height if that suits your application.

The linked page displays all 2K axle kits. You can click on the filters for your wheel bolt pattern, either 4-on-4 or 5-on-4-1/2, and also for the hub type, such as idler hubs without brakes, like kit # A20RS545. This kit includes 5-on-4-1/2 idler hubs. Please see the linked video for more on this kit.
