Recommended 8 Lug Hubs And Brakes For An M101A1 Trailer With Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System  


I’m retrofitting an old M101A1 trailer with these Timbrens. I saw in another answer that 8 lug hubs are compatible. Which hubs and brakes would you recommend? Is there anything else I would need to swap the old axle out? I plan on running either 35 or 37 inch tires on the trailer.


Expert Reply:

Yes, for your Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension # ASR35HDS02 you can use the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-219-4UC3-EZ and then the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 7K # 23-464-465 for the brakes.

From there you'll need to install the trailer wiring, a breakaway kit like # 20400, and will require a brake controller for your towing vehicle to activate the brakes. If your trailer doesn't have a junction box and 7-way connector then you can use the Trailer Wiring 7-Way Upgrade Kit w/ Junction Box # HS381-9000 to complete your wiring connections for your lights and brakes.

I've attached our help article below that will walk you through the all of the steps of installing electric brakes on your trailer and all components needed.
