Snipe bearings and a service

Am wanting to go to the SR gathering so the trailer could do with a service, bearings are first on the list just to be on the safe side.
How do I know what size and type to order? Wheels are 10" if that has any bearing on anything?
Tyres good what else should be checked?
The suspension is a git leaf spring which apart from rust works fine.

You're towing it down? I thought you SR owners were supposed to be tough and would be going by sea?

I've got 11 Barrus fuel tanks so I could get a good way down lol.
I would love to take it by sea but it would take a good few days and fuel. My mate still wants to take it by sea!

Safest way is to take it apart and either ID the stamped part numbers or take it to an auto shop and have them match them up. Remember to get a replacement grease seal while you're there.

Unfortunately, no bearing (pardon the pun) on internals; good to know if you need new tires though.

Your text looks like all the mod ads aimed at teenagers...

This should help, assuming you have what passes for normal bearings on this side of the pond.

If that's no help, a Google search for "trailer bearing replacement" should get you info.
