The same thing happened to me
Apparantly they can use different axels on trailers with different bearings ect, why I don't know, cost I presume at the time maybe
So you have to go through the procedure of finding the bearing and reading the punched in number if it is readable, then there is the down time delay in getting the job done.
Next time I will replace the complete hub with the bearings fitted
You live and learn but now at least I have all the numbers
