Replacement Hubs Needed for Mobile Home Axles on a Custom Built Trailer


Hello I know we are in a pandemic at the moment but my mom is 73 years old and wants to move back to southern Florida to spend time with her grandkids . I have a heavy duty trailer that me and my step dad built and it has the mobile home axles under it. I know these axles can haul mega weight because I used this trailer to Haul 50 loads of rock concrete and loose Gravel to fix up my step dads property on Mobile river. I also have extra axles but they have different size bearings and races. I need 4 of the 6 lug 6000 lb. Convertion kits. Ive been waiting for the next stimulus to come and I will order. What is the sizes of the inner and outer bearings on your convertion kits. Im looking at November or December to move her down there

The Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 5,200-lb and 6,000-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 12" - 6 on 5-1/2 # 8-201-9UC3-EZ comes with the inner bearing # 25580 (1.75" inner diameter) and the outer bearing 15123 (1.25" inner diameter). However, I do need to mention that mobile home axles are basically designed for one-time use and don't always have standard axle replacement parts available.

With that being said, if your bearings do not match these, your best bet will be to replace the axles with something that uses the more common set-up. As an example, the Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes - E-Z Lube - 6 on 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 95" - 6,000 lbs # 7461121-EB will use the previously mentioned bearings, but will measure 80 inches from center to center on the spring seats, and 95 inches from face to face on the hubs, pictured below.
