    The majority of the time it's just a straight up wheel swap. Depending on the trailer manufacturer, it may require the fenders to be swapped also. What brand trailer is it, have a pic?

    Depending on the trailer, you cannot just swap. Fender height, spring height also must be considered. Easier to buy two spares and be done with it. I pulled mine a good bit further and everything worked out well. It again is personal preference. It might be as simple as a wheel swap, but then again it might not be. Good luck!
