Tag Axle Manufaturer 89 Fleetwood Limited

Been having a conversation with Flat Nose Frank and he mentioned he converted his back axle on his Revcon to disc brakes. which is a basically a Dexter Trailer axle because the Revcons are Toranado Front wheel drive.

Here's my question and reasoning as to why I'm researching this.
Does anyone know who made the Tag Axles on the 89'ish Fleetwoods?
Mine is a 3 axle 37' J Limited! I affectionitly call her Big Girl.

She has disc brakes on the Drive and Steer Axles. But drum brakes on the Tag Axle.

I'm thinking, "If I could adapt disc brakes to that Tag Axle I could stop better.
And maybe eliminate that tag axle power booster. Already installed a bigger Master Cylinder for the possibility.
Yea, crazy I know, but I'm an old Hot Rodder and love weird projects and Horsepower.
1990 Fleetwood Limited Edition, Converted to Diesel. Pulling my toy box, a 93 Isuzu Rodeo 4X4.
Life is for the Adventure not the problems!
