Question New Hubs for my '61 Safari

I am interested in replacing the hubs on my Airstream. I can find the brake assembly at InlandRV, however I am at a loss as where I can purchase new hubs.

I need two. One has a broken lug nut stem. I dont feel to good about traveling any distance w/ that. I am going to purchase new brake assemblys, and new shocks and the spindles seem fine as does the duratorque axle.

They look serviceable to me. Why not get them turned and new lugs put on?
The magnet surfaces don't look scored which is important when you get new backing assemblies.

I have considered that. I'd like an idea how much new costs first.

I have a set (2) that's in better condition if you want them.

Fundave.

I don't think you can find any new hub and drums for your unit.

But you must include the inner and outer bearing numbers, of what you have, as a start.

Dave,
You can have 'em if you need 'em. The catch is you need to pick them up or prepay the freight. Weight is 100#, including complete backing plates.
Bearings:
Inner 2788/2729
Outer 1779/1729
Seal: National 203034

Have you considered replacing the whole axle? I would - because over time the metal tends to get brittle as I understand it - that way you have the piece of mind of all new running gear - not to mention that you would have all modern parts - hubs, bearings, brakes etc. As an added plus I think the new hubs are more balanced

I gotta say, that's exactly why I have the old parts available.
