Where to buy a new trailer axle?

I've decided to make my rib trailer my new project, I can't justify dipping in to my pocket for a nice new shiny one.

I need to replace the brakes, and I mean ALL it components so I'm thinking it would be easier and more cost efficient just to buy a new axle all made up.

I remember a thread a while back about a recommended supplier for such a thing but can't find it.

Anyone point me in the right direction?

I also need cables, a hitch for 70mm box section and a replacement rear swing beam.

Or, you could try the guys who make indespensions axles for them:
Meredith & Eyre Trailers | Tilt Bed Trailer | Plant Trailers | Tipper Trailer

They made several axles for me a few years ago at @60% of Indespensions price, and delivered them in around 10 days.

Where to buy a new trailer axle?

I've started using these http://www.rothwelltrailers.co.uk bits might be worth a call for a price loads cheaper than Indespension
I can always stick it on a pallet for you

Hi Alan, iv'e just done my trailer a wee while back, an indespension roller coaster as well,
i used "trailertek" online, they were the cheapest and quick delivery,
i needed new suspension units, brakes cables, u bolts, bolts and rollers etc etc, iv'e found them really good.
