How To Determine If A Replacement Axle Will Fit My 2022 Forest River R-Pod 202


I have a Forest River R-POD 202 2022 model year, VIN 4X4TRPV2XNB027587. The axle sticker is: LCI35-DTBSA-89.5-63.25-ID-22D-LPIB-L-545-CAP 3000# V00058643 This trailer has 2 diamond shaped torsion axles. A shop told me that the front axle is bent. Their price parts + labor was $1200 so I am considering replacing it myself. The closest match I could find on your website is an 89inch torsion axle, 3500 lbs, item # 8327812. Can you tell me if this is item is a match for my model 202 trailer?

To confirm if the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop E-Z Lube Spindles # 8327812 will work with your 2022 Forest River R-Pod 202 or not, you're also going to need to verify that your spring seat-to-spring seat measurement is 74".

It also wouldn't hurt to measure the hub-face-to-hub-face as well, to ensure that your axle is 89" long.

Additionally, this axle has a 4" drop, but if you didn't need a drop axle, then you could also use the:

-Trailer Axle Beam with Easy Grease Spindles # e38GR which will work just the same, the only difference being that this axle does not have a drop.

If you've measured (A) and (B) from the attached diagram and confirmed the measurements, then you're good to use either axle.
