Welcome, not sure what your asking. You need to be a lot more specific if you would like some recommendations or help.

If you need bearings your best bet is to remove a set, clean them and go to a reputable auto parts store. They can cross reference numbers and find what you need.
Same with the wheel seals.

Go to an actual auto parts store, not the big box style. My personal preference is a NAPA. I have had hit or miss luck with places like Auto Zone, Pep Boys, O'Reillys and Advance. If you have the bearing and seal with you they will have no problem matching them up. Why do you want to replace the bearings on such a new trailer? If they have not been abused (run without grease or overheated) or run a lot of miles they are probably fine. I would be more concerned with the condition of the brakes.

Oh for the counter man that knew what the part did by application rather than the SKU number. The guy that could thumb through the correct, dog eared, dirty library of catalogs and find what you needed. The counter man that could suggest an alternative part.
Then when you forgot your money he's the one that would point to a stack of counter checks and give you your account number.
Those were the days before computers and non-mechanical people behind the counter.

I would go with what Aaron has stated, but if you still need to find the bearing and seals, you can also go to www. etrailer .com I have used them for my car trailer and they had the parts I couldn't find local

Been there, done that... I WAS the counter man for a couple of years at the end of high school. I drove an MGB-GT and a 53 Chevy pickup, knew my parts AND my customers. Chances were good that when someone walked through the door that I had helped before, I knew what they were driving and most likely what they were working on at the time.

MGB-GT and almost every other foreign car brand that made its way to the US came through our shop. For 10 years I wrenched at the only foreign car shop in town that was located outside a military base.


I drove them all on road tests except for one car, a Morgan that was trailered in, worked on, road tested by the owner and trailered out. He never, never, never let me drive it. He did let me unbuckle the bonnet and work on it though.
