Dino, knock both bearings out and take them to a bearing shop so they can match them up. We have a good one on London Road in Portsmouth, but it is probably a bit far from you. They will be able to meausre them and recommend replacements. Alternatively you could try SBS Trailers but likely to be a mark up involved.

Agree with doggypaddle.
.
I bought a set of brgs x4 (inner/outer and seals) for two wheeled trailer at Easter this year for 18.00 plus vat.
I explained the bearings where for a trailer and before I had given the shop all the number he was telling me the complete number, also he had loads on stock - no need to order/reserve. Made me think these are quite common and readily available.
.
Try yellow pages (yell.com) for local eng supplier or nearest bearing stockist (ie Swan Brgs/BSL/any transmission supplier - theres loads about and they are generally very helpful).
.
Quote them what numbers you have, id of brg, od of brg, thickness of brg, if you have any seals (usually on one side), their use - they will find the right one for you.

Bedford Bearings will sort you out in no time or even a local motor factor called Bedford Battery. I guess they will both do mail order, never had to do it myself as they are just locally in town. Both sides chip as chips, well about 20 with seals I think.

I always keep a spare hub with bearings in handy when trailing about ,just in case!
