IMO, trying to keep a 25 year old vehicle reliable and safe is like trying to keep Bill Clinton faithful.

Looking at the trailer you pull and the rack of stuff on the bumper, I can see why the axle gave out. A lot of weight for a half tone axle.

Depends on your budget. There are lots of reasonably priced used rvs out there. Maybe you could find one that meets your needs even better. More space, power and overall capacity. Safe Travels.
