Does anyone know of a travel trailer repair business in Southern California that knows how to replace the axel on a 1977 13ft. Scamp. I checked Craigslist....too many flakes...would like to find someone who has already done this replacement.

EDIT: I can never figure out why vertical photos show sideways

EDIT2: The extra beefy axel doesn't add to the stiffness because of the 2,200 lb springs.Pulls like a dream.
