trailer axle identification

Hi,

I have access to a chassis with tandem axles that used to be an old 21' travel trailer untill a big tree landed on it. I was thinking about using the chassis as a bumper hitch flat bed trailer. The GVWR sticker is long gone unfortunately. I am trying to find out if the axles are worth saving. They carry an odd four bolt split rim wheel with reverse thread lug bolts on one side. The hubs are marked "DAYTON" and have the following numbers- W-2 and 9222 there is also a small indescernable number that I will attempt to make out if it would be helpfull. I would like to know what these axles are rated at and if there is any way to swap hubs to carry a centerless type wheel. Thanks for any information.

Get your spindel meas. dia. how long and where the steps are call where ever you get trailer parts they most likley can get you hubs that fit your spindels you can have 2500# axles and 1500# springs so you need to look at them also.

Is it a split rim or is it a Fayette? Fayettes have about an 8" round center with 4 lugbolts, driver's side is left hand thread.

Any pics??

Hi, I was searching for a new fayette rim and hub because I ruined mine when i got a flat because WHO WOULD A' THUNK that it was reverse thread. I know this was an old reply but do you have any idea where I can find them?
Thanks for any reply,
Brian

highcountry, Unless you have a high cube low weight use for the trailer, I don't think it would be a good candidate. Think about the big hiway trailers. Look under a box trailer and there isn't much to see, a flatbed has much more frame under it, the lowboys have more. The tt uses the ridged sides and top to keep everything together and has a light weight frame, also it is not a cargo hauler so there isn't much extra factored in. IMHO

Can't help with the axles but just adding .

We had a 1977 21' tandem axle travel trailer but it had the standard 15" (dodge van )rims on it (IIRC) with the reverse lug bolts. I'm positive the gvwr on it was 5500lbs. Was thinking of doing the same with a new bed using the old frame and axles. I ended finding a buyer for the old camper and never did it.

Just realized this was from 2002
