Hello,
I have a Pioneer trailer (model P-1723) that I use for my 17' Whaler. I like the trailer, it's aluminum for the most part and also like the torsion bar suspension.
Problem is the torsion bar axle is rusting away fast.
A few places I went to say that it's an oddball size and have to special order/make it which may mean costing more.
I did some measurements, not sure they are the correct way of measuring.

-From Outside to Outside of Hub I have: 82.5"
-Where wheel/axle are center of Aluminum I-beam to center of Aluminum I-beam is: 65.75"

This is how it looks on both ends :/

Is this really that uncommon of an axle size?
Any info appreciated.
