Recommended Axles To Replace Torsion Axles On 1989 Avion 34X Travel Trailer  


The torsion axles 3 on my 1989 Avion 34X travel trailer seems to have bottomed out and dont move. When jacking up the trailer there is no movement in the axles. In 1989 Avion used Al-Ko torsion axles. So far I have not been able to find any ID numbers on the axles. I know that weight capacity and angles must match the originals. I think changing to Dexter torsion axles would be a good upgrade. Is there a cross reference chart which would tell which Dexter axles to use. I have bought several items through with good success. Thanks

I may have another option for you, but unfortunately we do not carry any torsion axles at this time.

The option I recommend is replacing the torsion axles on your 1989 Avion 34X with the Timbren Axle-less Suspension System. These systems bolt directly to the frame of your trailer and will not require you to measure the exact length of the axle. The Timbren systems use a progressive rate AEON mainspring that is built in to absorb road shock, and give you a smooth ride.

If your axles have a 3500lb rating the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Straight Spindle Only - 3,500 lbs # ASR3500S05 would be a great choice, and would use idler hub # 84545UC1-EZ or Hub and Drum # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K and braking assemblies # AKEBRK-35-SA.

If you can tell me the capacity of your axle I would be happy to confirm the correct system for your trailer.

I included a few videos of the Timbren system for you to take a look at.
