1993 Escort Boat Trailer Bearings and Weight Capacity


1993 Escort trailer vin:405119BA8P******* I want to repack the bearings - there are no numbers anywhere on the parts. The trailer sticker is gone. I have no idea the weight capacity of this single axle trailer is. 5 lugs. Has electronic brakes. Trailer is about 23feet long total from hitch to rear and holds a 19 foot boat. Has a tandem spindle, I think 1 3/8 back bearing and 1 1/16 front bearing. . if I get a 3500lb bearing is that 7000lb with both sides installed or is that total.

We unfortunately can't find bearing information based on VIN. It definitely sounds like you have the traditional 3,500 lb axles that will simply use the bearing kit # BK2-100. Each axle will have a max capacity of 3,500 lbs so that will be the maximum capacity of your trailer.

If you decide you want to upgrade your hubs and brakes, you can use the hubs # AKHD-545-35-K and the brake assemblies # AKEBRK-35-SA for self-adjusting or # AKEBRK-35 for manual adjustment.

If you have the same 3,500 pound axle setup, you could actually still use the etrailer Hub and Drum # AKHD-545-35-K , assuming you have hydraulic drum brakes currently. These hubs are compatible with both electric and hydraulic drum brake assemblies. Then for the brakes themselves the etrailer Hydraulic # AKUBRK-35-D will work perfectly. If you have a different setup please let me know.
