Axle upgrade in BC

Hello, have a '76 Trillium with what looks like original axle configuration, but the PO updated to larger wheels. Thinking of an overhaul of this whole system - anyone in the BC know of a trusted RV place to take it to (preferably in the lower mainland)?
Cheers,
Judi

Escape Trailer Industries in Chilliwack used to take on jobs like your Trillium. With their expansion, I'm not sure if they still do. For a short while they were building Trilliums for another company.

North Shore RV Service Centre is another to check out. I use them for service work.

Hey Judi,

I have upgraded to a flexiride axle 2 years ago.
I mounted it on an old frame with a 10 up leading setting and have also adjusted it to a 10 down trailing setting to suit a newly fabricated frame.
I liked it for this function, that is was custom fabricated to fit your own frame and so far so good.. Even after 16000km in 2 months last fall.
