Recommended Hub and Drum and Brake Assemblies for Mobile Home Axles on Trailer


Hi there, I tried researching they QandA section but couldnt find exactly what I needed. I have a trailer I received that has mobile home axles under it. Im looking to replace the hubs on my trailer with hubs that would accept a standard trailer wheel and tire with lugs instead of the clamp ring I currently have. I will attach my measurements taken. I used a diagram in a QandA question to get the measurements. I take them to be the following: Bearings: Inner bearing: 1.75 inner diameter Outer bearing: 1.25 inner diameter Grease seal: 2.25inch i believe my caliper was reading a little off as it showed 2.2630, I also had not fully cleaned that surface Can you please point me in the direction of the correct hub I would need to replace this with? And do you offer a brake rebuild kit as well that would be compatible with my brakes? The hub itself is a 12 hub. The rear axle is a match but without brakes. Do you also sell an idler hub in this size? Thank you very much


Expert Reply:

For your front axle, I recommend the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 42866UC3. Then for your brakes, I recommend # 23-105 for the left hand (driver's side) and # 23-106 for the right hand. If you have hydraulic brakes, then I recommend # 23-324 and # 23-325 instead.

For your rear axle, I recommend the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # 42865-KIT.

If you need tires to match the hubs, I recommend the Westlake ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 16" Silver Mod # LHAW133. These combinations are rated to be run at 80 psi when filled cold and can handle speeds up to 75 mph. These come with the best warranty of any company I'm aware of with 1 year on the wheel, 5 years on the tire, and 2 years of 24/7 roadside assistance.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
