I just ordered new bearings & races today. Timken, made in USA. Came to about
$130 plus shipping. I'll do it in the spring when I do brakes. This is for a set of 4 for my 30' Airstream Excella. So if someone says they can do the job for $75 is installing China bearings. OH, additionally a set of 4 double lipped seals for $21.

Thanks Roger!...just finished installing new hitch, sway + equalizer bars. Next project is bearings, races, and brakes. There is a local place in Fort Worth that sells them, so hopefully I won't need all SIX

Roger, if the local place doesn't have them, who did you order from?

Bearings as well as the "PROPER" grease seals are available from a few dealer.

Make sure the grease seal is "double lipped and with a spring".

Hi Stogieman, I ordered Timken bearings and races from a place called Locate ball bearings. Google them. They were very knowledgeable and helpful on the phone. They have all makers and good prices. I got the seals locally
