bearing dust covers

A question please.

Are bearing dust covers all the same size? I've lost one off my Rapide roller trailer.

It hosts a 4.5m rib. I'm planning a bearing strip next week to see if anything nasty has gotten in there but will need to cover it again after I guess?

Bugger - I was afraid some one would say that.

It's a trip to the store, pull the boat out and measure time then.

Cheers all - I'll take a couple of coke bottles with me, and that site will be great - once I've measured up the remaining one

I have a spare dust cover from my Rapide. Give me an idea of the diameter of your and if it's similar I can post it to you.

Thanks for the offer. I'll get to the store on Monday and have a measure an ddrop you a line. They seem to cost not a lot - it's getting the right one that seems to be tricky.

The one off my 4'x6' trailer is too small


I need to get a spare set of bearings anyhow - seem to remember that the last set I bought (on the old trailer) had one with it?
