    Hello, We need new wheel bearings for the camper that we just purchased. Do you sell the bearings for this camper ?

    You should be able to get wheel bearings at any good (Not Autozone) auto parts store.

    Yeah..we didn't want to pull it out and bring it to the local auto parts because they rarely get the right part :) Didn't know if there was a part number but thanks !

    There is a number on the side of the bearing, clean the bearing well, copy the number, or take the cleaned bearing to the auto parts store and they can match them up, also do not forget to take the rear seals, I always use marine grease to pack all my trailer wheel bearings.

    The inner and outer bearing reference numbers will be stamped/etched into the side of the bearing cages as shown in the provided photo. Each particular bearing has its own corresponding race, it's usually a good idea to replace the race when you replace the bearing, but it's not always necessary. Run your finger around the surface of the race, looking for nicks, corrosion or rough spots. Closely examine the race, if you see blue discoloration, it's a sign that the race was overheated at some point and should be replaced. The bearing and race will have a corresponding grease seal, that'll also need replacing because it'll need to be removed to access the inner bearing. The seal doesn't usually survive being removed.

    If you use the link below, you can see a video that'll walk you through the replacement process.
