Need hub for 1978 Holiday Rambler

My old 1978 Holiday Travel Trailer has a hub that is cracked, hub and drum are one piece. This is a Dexter wide 4 lug hub, probably hasn't been made for years. I have looked some but don't find anything, I live in Washington State close to Olympia. Any Ideas?

Once you get to that age trailer, finding axle parts is a real problem. You will be better off replacing the axles with new ones. replace the springs, hangers and all with a wet bolt kit.

THe part the hub (Some call it a spindle) goes on might be the same as newer axles. of course you would need a different wheel to match.

I assume you desire to keep your vintage trailer original. If so, try RV salvage and surplus dealers
and vintage vacations.com, otherwise, Ken has the best suggestion.

Please forgive me for hijacking this thread! I have a 1972 Holiday Rambler travel trailer, and we can not figure out where to access the drain for the dirty water tank. Helpful hints, please!

On my 1978 Holiday Rambler the tank valves are in front of the the wheels on the drivers side. There is a dump connection about 2 feet toward the center(not too user friendly) from the dump valves. If not, there is a removable 2'x2' cover just below the dump valve area to gain access.
Hope that helps
