    I was looking at auto-adjusting brakes just recently and it looked like the same 12 x 2" brake assembly is used on 5200# - 7000# axles. A call to GD Customer Service with your camper VIN at 574.825.9679 to know for sure.

    5200 to 7000 axles use 12 x 2" brakes. I installed a set of 6k Dexter self adjusting brakes on the 5k axles of our old 5er. The only difference was magnet size.

    Thanks for the info guys. That's just what I was thinking of doing. Sounds like self adjusting
    brakes are the way to go.

    I went with forward adjusting brakes. Working great. Bought them at camping world for about $74 each. They were complete assemblies.

    I used these guys for my Dexter stuff and they have Lippert parts as well. Good prices and prompt service but you will have shipping charges.

    Great recommendation! I have gotten a few parts from etrailer.com, and they have excellent, caring customer service with follow-up emails and quick shipping. Not to say that eastern marine doesn't do equally well!

    I bought a 5th Airborne pin box from etrailer and I agree.
