    With an Alko chassis, do Alko use the rear hubs, discs and, callipers from the original base vehicle or are they specific to Alko, if so how and where can one obtain replacement discs and pads?

    I have drums on my Alko chassis, the replacements came from a local motor factors, they had them on the shelf, probably Peugeot in my case.

    brakes

    I Did wonder as the TAG axle on mine has disc and calipers, but not vented as far as I can see without taking the wheels off, I wonder if there std fitment at the rear on the std chassis / cab.

    most standard chassis cabs have drum brakes on the rear, so it depends on the model whether the converter uses drums or discs. whichever, both are easily available same day at motor factors or cheaper next day from factors on ebay. never pay main dealer prices as they are marked up just because they can and because its "special metal only for motorhomes" :Rofl1:
