I have a 2008 Lund GL on a Lund trailer.

  The trailer has torsion axels.

Currently on vacation in Door county.
we trailered the boat up here and I noticed the clearance between the tire and fender was significantly less on one side.

Took it tI local dealer here in door county who said it maybe cheaper to buy a new trailer! He’s not sure because the plant for the trailer is shutdown for 2 weeks.

Anyone have any experience with replacing torsion axels?

is trailer safe to drive back home?

Arrrrggggh!

Torsion Axel not that difficult to replace if you get it home.

If it’s not welded onto frame, no problem. If it’s welded, then that’s another whole animal to deal with. Cutting and grinding, and smoothing, then welding or bolting. Good luck, hope it’s easy.

I do not think it's a "Lund" trailer. There should be a placard on the trailer that lists the manufacturer, model, capasity, amongst a bunch of other information. Start there!

Sounds to me like a dealer that doesn't know what he is talking about and isnt interested in looking into it.

I doubt a torsion axle is that expensive,  saw online that they run 120 to 500 depending on size and weight rating . It doesn't take much to swap out an axle assembly on a trailer. Double check to see if trailer tire is rubbing against the fender,  if it is I would not try to make it back home .
