I need advice on replacing front and rear axles on a 1964 travco. New rims are not to be found for the bolt hole pattern. If someone out there can give me exactly the needed conversion I would greatly appreciate it  . I would like to convert to disc brakes at the same time

Hi Dan,I'm sure that you could have new steel wheels made for your 1964 Travco.Don't forget a spare as well.Disc brakes would be a nice upgrade but drum brakes work good too.After adding up the cost of used axles and wheels.A new master cylinder and all of that labor.Plus other new brake parts.Then maybe everything might go right?I would stick with what you have.

You can always try a company called STRANGE Engineering at strangeengineering.net They have done work for me, and no words can express the satisfaction of the ability and quality of the conversion they did.

Greetings Dan, I don't know if this would be helpful or not. but if your needing parts for your Travco there are currently two of them on the Columbus Ohio Craig's List. 66/69 $1000. per I know your looking for up grades but I thought I would let you know of this resorce.

Dan, we have a Forum on Travcos in our GORVS Forums. Here's the link http://goodoldrvs.ning.com/forum/categories/all-things-dodge-travco... I remember a discussion on this very topic about 9 or 10 months ago. You can also type Travco or rims, etc. (any topic) in our tiny little SEARCH box very top right of this home page and tons of discussions will pop up. Hope this helps.
