Question hub & bearings...

I have a 96 fleetwood wilderness 24' travel trailer. can anyone please, please give me some hub & bearing size info for this? and maybe brake plate size? i know i can remove them and get it, but i'm trying to avoid jacking this thing more than once... thanks, james

If your going to service just jack it up and pull the seals get the numbers off them it's the best way to do that, the brakes should be fine unless it's been pulled alot then wash and regrease berings

i understand that, but i plan to do all 4 at one time. new hubs, bearings, and brakes. i'll have to move it to the street for this, and only want to lift each side once. i can't leave it in the street while i order and wait for delivery, so i'm trying to order ahead of time... someone out there has specs for this, i'm just looking around. fleetwood is no help at all.

With the age of the trailer, I would only go by pulling a wheel and getting the proper part numbers. Odds are too high that the parts will not match based on someone elses trailer.

I had the same problem, not wanting to leave the trailer in the air out tires. I looked on the axle tube and there was a tag with the manufacture of the axle and model #(mines a 2005 and was kinda rusty if yours had one It may be missing now) Then googled and found the manufactures site with the axle specs. Went to the auto parts store with the specs and they were able to match them up. Without a model # like others said you will have to pull the wheels. Good luck.
Ps I just did the seals but I was able to get inner and other spindle specs as well as brake sizes

Wait for delivery?

Generally if you have a decent (NAPPA) parts store nearby they are in stock and the clerk can hand 'em to you in under 10 minutes.. No wait to speak of. (Way under 10 minutes).

If you are worried pull a dust cap and take it to the store.. Odds are there is but one size bearing that uses that dust cap, and only one seal.

If you only need to replace the seal, the odds there are even better.

Home is where I park it!
