Replacement 1200 lb Axle for Starcraft Starflyer Pop-Up Camper


I had a question in regards to getting a replacement torsion axel for my 1990 Starcraft Starflyer Pop up trailer. what kits would you recommend as suitable replacement.


Expert Reply:

We don't offer replacement torsion beam axles, but we do offer the Timbren Axle-Less suspension that typically doesn't require an axle beam and won't require leaf springs, which could be a good solution for you.

My research indicates that the Starflyer weighed around 1200 lbs. If the ID tag on your pop-up confirms this, we offer some Timbren Axle-Less suspension systems that would work for you.

For the system with 4 on 4 bolt pattern idler hubs included, I'd recommend the # A12RS440. You can see a demonstration video of a typical system by clicking the provided link.

@MariaB I recommend pulling and inspecting the bearings and seals, then repacking the good (or replacement) parts. While you are in there I would recommend inspecting the brake parts for worn or broken parts. Since you have the tires in your hands, inspect them front and back for even the slightest signs or cracking and dry rot, or uneven wear. Tires generally age out before wearing out. If the tires are over 6 years old - replace them. I have attached several articles that you may find useful.
