If your backplates are rotted drums won,t do you any good at all , you can buy new backplates for about 40 pls vat each but you still have to get them welded on which is not an easy task and with boat trailers the plates need to be galvenised after welding and thats not possibble as the process would melt the suspension rubbers
you will have to bite the bullet and buy a new axle ,probhably £400 ,just make sure you know the ...wheel stud pattern poss 100 pcd .........the centr to centre of the axle mtg brackets ..........the overhub dimension ,....and the carrying cap ,(poss 1300kg ) ,then just make sure you know the axle offered is galvanised , i know al-ko axels usually come with new brake cables and wheel bolts , if its one of those bent axles then i reckon they are history , old snipe poss knott or lew ways ,but if you know all the above parameters there are plenty who will compete on price

Steve, has your axle got a makers plate on it with a serial number. My snipe trailer did, these axles were made by Peak trailers Ltd who are the factory of autow they make and supply to Snipe, they also supply Mersea Trailers. . I phoned them, gave them the axle serial number, they sent me a drawing of the axle, so i could tell it was the right one. And including postage to Ireland it was a lot cheaper than the ebay one.
