Oil bath Hubs
Came across an oil bath hubs for boat trailer.
But there is only 1 place in the US that carries them.

I have them on the rear axle on my tandem trailer for the boat. put them on before towing down here to the keys from home. Not once did they miss a beat. Solid, smooth, cool to the touch, and easy to see how the oil level is doing simply by looking at it.

I don't trust them for boat trailers or long haul trailers. Loose the seal or cap, then quickly the oil, - you're screwed period.
I'm not saying I don't like them to be crystal clear. They are cooler and well lubricated. When i built my last trailer, I considered the wet hub, but i travel too far and hate being stranded. I believe the greased hub will give you longer "fair warning".
I also have a spindle welded to the frame that holds a spare hub/tire - just in case my trailer or my buddies trailer has a problem....who knows, maybe even a stranger.
