Replacement parts for Axle URGENT!

So my sisters '85 25ft airstream lost a wheel and in the process (what came first I don't know) it destroyed the brakes and bearing on one wheel. So where can you get parts for the older axles for this, I was told she needs new brakes, bearing and hub. She is stuck in a small town (Franklin Ky) at a mechanics shop that does stuff like this. Any help would be great!

If you're sure she only needs bearings, seal, drum, and brake assembly, you can get them at almost any trailer repair shop. You will need to let them know if it's 10" or 12" brakes. If it's 12", the outer bearing is the smaller one (3000#), rather than the larger one (6000#). If the spindle was damaged, entire axle replacement is required.
