We recently completed (somewhat) a trip of 370 miles to northern Wisconsin with our 30' Terry TT. At some point on the trip, I lost the right rear wheel (passenger side) without my knowledge. I can safely say that I never felt or saw anything unusual during the entire trip. I stopped twice for fuel and food and everything was in tact during both stops about half way there. When I backed into my spot, someone asked me if I knew that I was missing a rear wheel, thinking them to be joking, I backed in and then looked. Much to my dismay, they were right. The entire wheel, hub assembly was missing, the only thing left was the 10x2-1/4 brake assembly. The bearings & races were basically welded to the spindle. We were able to remove the old race & bearing materials, but the axle spindle is bent and damaged to the point that getting new bearings & races on is impossible. I ended up taking the trailer to an automotive shop where the owner told me he could remove the axle and have a new spindle welded on. My question is whether or not anyone out there has any experience with welding new spindles onto a torsion axle. My welding shop back home says that they have done this with straight axles many times, but never with torsion axles because the spindles are pressed into the end of the drop axles. The trailer is currently 370 miles from home awaiting repairs - any comments from anyone with experience would be appreciated?
