Does anyone know? 78 Beachcomber Brakes, Lugs, Rims

The hubs on my 78 Beachcomber, has the rim size changed over the years on these types of travel trailers are the 5 bolt patterns the same size as the new travel trailers are the rims inter changable and can I install new brake assembles and new drums on the old spindle or will I have to change the spindle up to a new style as well?

For the rims. There is a bolt pattern gauge in the document section. You would have to measure yours to make sure.

For the brakes. Do you have a square plate at the axle end of your spindle? If so probably yes. We would need a picture to say for sure.
