Guess the trailer and PCD

Before you say, just go and measure it.

I am 140 miles offshore, buying things online

I need a way to get my thunderbolt home and my triple axle redbay trailer is a tad excessive for the job.

So I bought a little trailer to modify, just to get the thing home. It was 100 on ebay, some 30 year old combi dinghy trailer.

I know what these things are like, so can anybody hazard a guess to the PCD and wheel bearing size.

My guess is 4x4" with a 1" tapered roller bearing. I don't know if it will make it the 2 hours home, but it would be nice to have a spare wheel and a couple of bearings should the inevitable happen.

One thing that seems to be fact that if it has grease nipples cut out in the centre of wheels its fairly safe to say 4" pcd if 4 stud suspect 1" bearings ,looks like 6 bolts either side to bolt suspension units on may be usuful too , 10 " wheels ?

Ask the seller to send you details of what the tyre size is - or a photo of the sidewall?
And measure the PCD for you?
