I do have a way that you can put replacement hubs on your 1962 Aloha Trailer, but unfortunately we do not have any hubs that use those bearings.

If you are restoring or updating this trailer then it may be easier to just replace your axle so that you can easily find replacement parts.

You can try matching the leaf spring and spring center measurements of our standard axles so they match with your trailer, but I recommend using a Timbren Rubber Spring Suspension instead. The Timbren Axle-Less suspension is much easier to install than the traditional axle plus it can increase the ground clearance of your trailer. You could use part # A35RS545 which include the hub assemblies that have a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern, and use the common Inner Bearing # L68149, Outer Bearing # L44649, and Grease Seal # RG06-050.

I have attached an installation video for you to reference should you choose to go this route.
