We don't have a kit for Harbor Freight trailers and their parts are very rarely compatible with standard trailer parts like we carry. We have however found there are times when the bearing buddies # BB2047 specifically has fit. We haven't confirmed a fit on that model yet, so you will need to measure the hub bore of the hubs on your trailer. If the hub bore is 2.047 then these will work for you.

For a hub and bearings, you would need to pull the hub and look at the bearing numbers. Based on those numbers, I can see if we have anything that will fit. We haven't had much luck with a fit in the past on similar trailers but it is possible.

Question:

Getting the bearing numbers. I just got the trailer. Removed their grease, put in my choice. Torqued the lugs nuts down to specs. It has a regular (not tapered) 1 inch spindle - 12 inch tires - 5 lugs. Is it possible to recommend something based on the numbers above? ( On the internet I found some people saying that they use Dexter hubs as replacement on the 1 inch spindle HBF trailers ) Thoughts? You have great videos on YouTube! Thanks,

For a 1 inch spindle, I recommend replacing the hubs with either the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb Axles - 8" to 12" Wheels - 5 on 4-1/2 # AKIHUB-545-2-1K or the Trailer Hub Assembly for 8" to 12" Wheels - 2,000-lb Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 - L44649 Bearings # 8-259-5UC1.

If you use these hubs, then you can use the Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors - Model 1980A w/ Auto Check - Chrome Plated (Pair) # BB1980A. I've attached some videos to assist.
