    trailer hub size???

    are all 4 lug trailer hub for 1" axle the same?

    I`m thinking about replacing the complete hubs for my trailer, but don`t know if the replacement are a direct fit without completely measuring the ones that are still on???

    Depending on what brand of axle you have, the only difference might be the seal, but to measure the seal you will need to remove the hub.

    update:
    well I ordered some 4 lug hubs for 1" axle. complete with bearings, grease and seals etc. I`ll know soon if it will work out...

    update: well that didn`t work out, even tho the new hubs are 1" bearings they were way to loose on the spindle, come to find out that spindle is smaller than bearing ID, I cross referenced the stock china made bearings #30205 and they are indeed 1", this atests to my sloppy wheel play and the surface area is also smaller due to the manufacturer grinding down some welding slag, can`t think of any other reason why it is the way it is...

    solution:
    sh-tcan the stock axle, install a round tube 1 3/4 axle and install the hubs I just bought that are also SAE 1/2RH threaded studs, and not the 12mm ones that came with the trailer...

    moral of story: Venture trailers suck, I was warned
    seems I can`t buy anything new that doesn`t need some kind of repair anymore

    The trailer has a 2 year warranty which would require me to take the trailer back to the purchasing agent across the state, and for them to do what exactly? re-pack the bearings like I did and send it back to me so i can send it right back to them saying the bearings are still taking on water!!! seals don`t even fit right on the spindle...

    any thoughts?

    Sounds to me you have two options and you hit one of them.

    1) Sh*t can the stock axle and get a new one.

    2) Get a new trailer.

    I know www.trailerpart.com can make an axle to the dimensions of your existing axle.
