Spare trailer hubs and bearings

I want to take some spare hubs / bearings with me when I go to collect my boat as I'm going to be towing for 350 + miles in one hit. How do I identify the correct type I need, and can anyone on here either supply or recommend a supplier?

Chris

If join RAC etc, they will get your boat home, My mate had spare bearings and they fitted them at the road side.

I recon these would be what you need, but to be sure do you know what make the trailer is?

Pair of Trailer Hubs - 4/4" PCD (complete with bearings) | eBay

Can the hubs be identified from that or do I need to get the seller to pop a wheel off and check the hubs for a name, type, etc.

I think it will be the ones I have sent link to but can not be sure, if it has a grease nipple & the PCD is 4 then you should be OK, try sending a PM to trailer Guy to see what he thinks

you think so? I know some which they, the RAC, would not, the trailer only being covered if the car broke down. Thats why we're with green flag/caravan club "mayday" -exceptionally good with trailers. Various threads on here about getting the right breakdown company, they are not all the same by any means.

I am with the RAC & caravan club cover, they say they will cover the boat trailer if that brakes down.

the RAC assured one of the kids inlaws the trailer was covered- when the wheel bearing went halfway to Poole they refused to cover it-said trailer was only covered if car broke down. If you have some specific caravan club cover then maybe thats different but as far as I know C.C. was always with Green Flag. We had good service from them when my mates boat trailer that I was towing sheared its wheel studs in the middle of nowhere one night. Also used them to change an offside caravan wheel on the M6-I wasnt doing that as one of the guys from our dive club was killed on the M5 doing just that with a boat trailer wheel when a lorry took him out, killed instantly!

I'm with the AA and their website claims they cover trailer breakdowns. We may find out
