Advice on replacing trailer torsion axles/hubs

I need to replace the axles and hubs on my catamaran trailer. They are Magic Tilt PH1615's and there are three of them--two with brakes and one without. Needless to say this is not going to be cheap. The quote from the local shop was around $2K before tax.

Any suggestions on the best price on line or substitutes? I am not married to Magic Tilt OEM parts.
Love flying and diving--dangerous and unnatural both, but so exhilarating. Nothing sets a man more apart from nature or closer to her.

Re: Advice on replacing trailer torsion axles/hubs

We had some discussion of torsion axles recently in this thread:

Torflex Axles on my new trailer

My preference is for the galvanized Eliminator ones from Tie-Down. I bought mine several years ago and don't exactly remember the price, but I think they were about $350 per axle.

They're holding up very well, after multiple saltwater launches per year.

Good luck!
