Axle replacement recommendation wanted near Boston, MA.

I need to have the old axle cut off my 1977 Scamp 13' and a new one welded on.




Can anyone recommend a place near Boston?

I cant. But I can suggest that you have the brackets welded on and the axle bolted on the brackets. In 20 years someone will appreciate it.

The only way to go then if you need to do it in the future, you can do it yourself in a couple of hours. Many raise their camper also so think about that.

If I want to go trailing-arm it'll have to be raised to get the axle under the floor I think.


I'm going to a trailer shop on Wednesday to have them look at the situation.

Alan My 93 "lil" Bigfoot has a leading link Dexter axle. The axle is set on a part of the frame in the wheel well, that changed from parallel lines (left and right sides) to a 13 degree angle inward toward the center of the trailer. 49"s wide at wheel well 2' wide at the front of the frame. where it comes out from under the trailer. The brackets welded to the axle are set at 13 degrees out of square. I am trying to figure out how to add brackets to the angled part of the frame to make it a parallel line along the wheel well. allowing me to change to a trailing link axle.

Later Kenny
