Question Surfside tripple E 1978, torsion axle.

Hello all, I recently purchased a 1978 Surfside tripple E. The thing is a beaut! I suspect that the torsion arms on the axle has surpassed its life tho. The two side sit significantly different over the wheels. I know there is multiple forms on here regarding the correct replacement axle, but I can't see to find a definite answer as to what you people are using in place of the original. Any information is greatly appreciated!
Thank you all in advance!

Rob, I have 1977 Surfside with an original torsion axle. I am planning a trip to the North West Territories (from Hamilton Ont.) this summer. Lots of gravel roads! I am assuming that I will need to replace the axle before the trip. I am currently looking to local places (RV& Hitch) that may be able to do this work. I am interested in what experiences other Surfside owners have had? I hope to watch your post for any insights. Bill
