Expert Reply:

Replacing your existing axle with the Dexter Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs - 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 60" Long - 2,000 lbs # 20545I-ST-60-15 or Dexter Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs - 4 on 4 Bolt Pattern - 60" Long - 2,000 lbs # 20440I-ST-60 will work fine as long as the Hub-face-to-hub-face length is 60 inches and spring-center-to-spring-center length is 48 inches. This will give you a higher capacity axle but you will still be limited to whatever weight capacity the weakest component of your trailer is.

If your measurements don't line up, then I recommend going with the axle-less system. If you have a 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern, then # A12RS440 is the correct replacement. Otherwise you can use the # ASR1200S04 You can use a 2 inch square tube to connect these parts using the integrated hole if there isn't a frame cross-brace at your axle location.
