What year is the trailer and are you able to post a photo of one of the current wheels. Are the ones you have 15" wheels?

Redneck Trailer Supply has them, you just need to be able to tell them diameter, width, number of lugs, and offset. Should be a 2600 pound capacity wheel.

There will be dissagreement on this as some would insist on a new wheel only. However my choice would be used. Heck my trailer is used and came with 4 wheels. All of those were used when I bought my trailer. Anyway, the place I frequent is:
Arizona R.V. Salvage Inc

This is a very long distance from PA, so I would be looking for some place like this locally. As a suggestion, bring the old one with you to match up.

Hi, nothing wrong with used parts; I used to say, "used parts have already been tough tested." Heck, I still say that. And "new, doesn't always mean good."

Wheels

I have some (3) 5 hole wheels from my Caravel axel replacement ordeal. probabley not worth the shipping cost to you, but they are in great shape and painted black. They are yours for a cold beverage swapout.

Hi Melody Ranch,
They might be worth the shipping to me!
I am in the UK and need a spare wheel for my caravel, are you prepared to consider sending it, please?
Cheers,
Stew

Hi Melody Ranch,
I may also be interested in one if it will fit my 62 Bambi and if the previous requesters allow for one being left for me. I'll check my size today.
Thanks!
