In order to find the right bearings more information is required. The easiest way to find which bearings you need is to remove the hub and check for the numbers that should be stamped into the bearings. If you are unable to locate these numbers, another option is to take measurements on the trailer spindle at the bearing seat locations. Attached is an image that shows where the measurements need to be taken. I recommend using a digital caliper like # PTW80157 to acquire accurate measurements.

Looking up the trailer it appears as though you have 3,500 lbs axles on this trailer. Best guess, you would need # BK2-100 Bearing Kit for #84 Spindle, L44649/L68149 Bearings. It is still recommended that you measure to verify. Once you find the bearing numbers or spindle dimensions I will be able to recommend the correct bearings for your Big Tex 50LA trailer with certainty.

I have also attached some articles about bearings you may find helpful.
