Axle gaskets would be for an axle that has a shaft running through to the hub. The gasket would seal the end of the axle to the bearing race area. The other area would be an application of the braking backing plate having a gasket in the area where it meets the spindle.

Airstream and other travel trailers do not have drive axles and there is not a need to dissassemble the brake backing plate when repacking the wheel bearings. Hope this helps.

You will only need the grease seals that are correct for your wheel bearings. One for each wheel.
