The Alko waterproof hubs fitted by SBS are different to the normal Alko 2361'Caravan' hubs and for some reason the bearings are classed as an 'American' bearings ?
From your post, you now have the original 'W' designated waterproof hubs and the spare pair now fitted are standard hubs - so you will need both types of bearings for replacement. The latter are easy to find with the BAH-0069's a bit more difficult (for me anyway)
As well as searching for the SKF BAH-0069, use this (SKF) FW186 which is the same SKF bearing but packaged/marketed specifically as wheel bearing (Front

Probably US is just as easy for you down there !!
Hope this helps
