I was looking over my 91 Skamper that i bought and i was thinking about checking the wheel bearings. The previous owner said they were repacked last summer when they put the new tires on it and it hadn't been used more than a couple times after that, but just to be safe i want to check them anyway. I have a 4x8 utility trailer with the same size axle and wheels, but that one has the usual metal caps that you can just take a flat screwdriver and rubber mallet to get them off. This Skamper has plastic covers, i know they are plastic because they are the really long ones that stick out the width of the rim and tire and they were originally silver but some of that has worn off and you can see the off white plastic showing from under the metallic finish on them. How do you remove these without breakage? I called a trailer shop that i know of any he wasn't sure since he is used to metal caps or bearing buddies being on most of the small trailers he works on. That brings me to question number two, after i get these off, has anyone put bearing buddies on these popups so you can give the bearing a squirt of grease now and then? I had a boat trailer and a utility trailer like that, nice to have a grease zerk to give it a squirt. 1991 Skamper 245C 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport Dad Mom Three Kids!
