There is a way for you to find the correct replacement hub for your 1995 Shoreland'r boat trailer though when I attempted to get that information via the VIN you gave, it came up as invalid.

Since you already know your bolt pattern of 5 on 4-1/2" there are only a couple of other things you need to know order to find the correct replacement hubs for your trailer: the weight rating of your axle, and also what bearings your current hub has.

You will need to take apart your current hub assembly and look at the bearings themselves; wipe away the grease and you should be able to see the part number stamped directly on them. If you are unable to find them, you need to use a digital caliper such as # 301-17068 and measure your spindle to the thousandths of an inch where the bearings and grease seal ride. You can use the photo I've attached to see exactly where you need to measure.

I have attached a link to our selection of hubs with a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern, as well as links to our selection of grease caps and seals for you to take a look at. You can also get back to me with this information and I'd be happy to find the right parts for you.
