I would be happy to help you but I need some more information about what bearing sizes your current hubs are to be able to make a specific recommendation. I recommend using a digital caliper like item # PTW80157. You will want to measure the spindle and/or bearing inner dimensions to find the exact size.

The Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 item # 34822545BX will work on your trailer if you trailer uses a inner bearing: L44643 (1" inner diameter) and an outer bearing: L44643 (1" inner diameter)
