Stehl Tow Dolly

Just bought a used 2008 Stehl Tow Dolly with electric brakes. This Dolly has been in Colorado and shows some surface rust. We are going to Quartzsite this Month and I wanted to check on the brakes and bearings.
Thing is, after real close inspection I still can't tell if the drums come off like a car or if the drums and hubs are one piece. I really want to inspect the shoes before our trip but don't want to have to go chase down new seals if I don't have to. Anyone done this before?
By the way Happy and safe New Year to everyone.

The drums will come off just like on a trailer axle. To remove and inspect the rear bearings you will need to replace the seals. Good luck and keep us posted.

brake shoe check

Just checked my yesterday. Remove tire makes it easier. Pull of the center dust cap, remove cotterpin, nut retainer, nut and pull drum off slowly. Outer bearing will fall out. Mine had a lot of dust , so have something to catch underneath if you don't want a mess. Make sure you have new cotter pins before you get started.
