I need to purchase and install new axles for my trailer. I haven't found a single pperson that knows anything about the type of axle I'm looking to install
I need torsion axles and electric over hydrolic brakes. If anyone knows somebody that can help me get it right I would really appreciate it . !

Big Tex Trailers in Dallas does good work but they are probably going to be on the higher end of hourly rates.

Now that I've thought about it, anyone that does RV or camper repair in the DFW area should be familiar with torsion axles. Due to the distance from the coast, I don't think anyone will be too familiar with torsion axles on boat trailers.

Most all boat repair shops have worked on the torsion axels and Vault hubs. That 30ft trailer will likely have 3 maybe 4 axel`s. Torsion axels are very easy to install. http://www.mcclaintrailers.com/ in Baton Rouge or Houston keeps a large inventory of the torsion axels.
