Default Where to Buy Trailer Axle

I am about to start hunting for a trailer axle. Does anyone have any recommendations on who I should get a quote from?

Thanks,

John

Approximate Specs:

Straight 3500#
61" hub to hub
43.25" spring center
Electric Brakes
Straight EZ Lube Spindle
6x139.7 or 6x5.5 bolt pattern
Spring Over for 2" Springs

I am also interested in possibly upgrading to a 3" tube over the standard 2 3/8" tube and manual parking brakes.

It is going to be custom for sure. I need a specific spacing on the spring seats and I want parking brakes and a 3" tube which are not common on the 3500lb axle. At least as far as I have seen in my initial research...

I found this place online which is 255 and includes the proper bolt pattern and electric brakes.

Obviously not all the things I was looking for.

Try etrailer.com

I bought a set of wheels and tires from them this past spring. Awesome prices, shipping was free, and customer service was really helpful.

I also found the local trailer dealer via Dexter's website and shot them an email.

First quote which isn't what I want... It seems to be a standard order axle:

A 3,500 lbs. straight electric brake axle is $239.95, but we do not have manual parking brakes.

"Answer:
I really wish we could get you the exact axle you need, but we only carry a select few axles at this time and none of them match what you listed. You are going to need to find a local trailer shop to you who can order you in custom axles and give them the dimensions you need."

Is there a way you can wire the electric brakes to a switch to keep them on when parked

That will run down the battery especially on a long camping trip.

And that's fine. I'll pay... I just want it to be the right axle if I am paying...

I have a quote at $513 from a local place for everything I want. Still haven't received a quote from R&P which I expect to be cheaper as they sell the parking brakes on their website for less than the quote I received, like half the price actually.

I got a quote from the place you recommended but they don't do parking brakes so it isn't "valid". Same as Trailerpart.com and southwestwheel.
