Thoroughly Tested for Safety

This hub-and-drum assembly meets the requirements for certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The CSA creates standards, which when complied with ensure a safe and quality product. This assembly underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. This assembly has also been tested by QAI for braking performance in a complete automotive setup and under real-world conditions to provide the most realistic scenario for the everyday driver.

E-Z Lube and Easy Grease-Compatible Assembly for Simple Lubrication

The grease cap on this hub-and-drum assembly is specially designed to work with your Dexter E-Z Lube or etrailer Easy Grease axle to make lubricating bearings quick and easy. Just remove the plug on the grease cap, attach a grease gun to the zerk fitting on the end of the spindle, and inject the grease. It will flow easily to both inner and outer bearings. Not only does this make lubricating the bearings easy, but it also helps to prevent corrosion of the hub. This is because you can lubricate the bearings without the mess of taking apart the entire assembly.

Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.

Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: 8 on 6-1/2 means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)

Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: 5 on 4-1/2 means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)

Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance (D) from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Couldn't have been easier!, Straight out of the box and onto the axle. Getting my axle buddies on there. Took a little bit of banging around but they seem to be spinning. True and definitely an improvement over the broken Coleman studs I had before.


I just now completed changing out and adding the new hubs and brakes on my trailer. The only issue or difficulty was my error in ordering the correct hubs/brake drums. The return was properly handled and the new parts arrived in a timely manner. All I have left to check on is the functionality once install my brake controller in my truck. I would make additional purchases from etrailer.


One question, does the magnet go on the top or bottom, I have seen them displayed both ways. I have already installed them with the magnets on the top. The right and left references looking forward, I presume..


Exactly what I needed. Good quality. fits perfect on my Snowfire trailer!!!


I installed these hubs and drums 1 years ago and in that time we have taken our camper on 12 trips locally (about 120 miles round trip each) and one big trip from Louisiana to Colorado and back which was close to 3,000 miles total. These hubs and bearing have performed perfectly. The drive to Colorado was 24 hours one way and the hubs never got hot. Everything was a perfect fit too.


I received within 4 days the wheel hub (with bearings and seal) together with backing plates that contained brake shoes and braking magnets. They installed perfectly on my Coleman popup trailer. Prices were reasonable. In fact the electric backing plate assemblies cost less than a previously purchased set of braking magnets.
Thanks for helping me get on the road again!


E trailer did a fantastic job.
order: Technical support / help was excellent.
Goal, conversion of a 1998 Floe snowmobile trailer from surge to electric brakes.
Problem, due to time and corrosion, I could only supply partial part numbers, spindle diameter.
etrailer did a fantastic job, researching, and getting me the correct part numbers, so I could order.
Julie did a great job.
She was very timely, communicated clearly and honestly, and just “kept me in the loop”.

I received the order came on the projected date, complete and undamaged. Excellent.
I would highly recommend etrailer, for your part needs.


Seems to be very good quality. These hubs/drums fit the Dexter axle of my pop up camper perfectly. I like that they came with races, bearings and seals. The races were already properly installed.


Everything looks good and price was great!
still to come so will update after install.


product worked just like it should . The video on youtube made installation a snap . Even with a snafu at the warehouse of the wrong bearings being shipped one phone call to the very helpful rep led to a quick resolution . I have dealt with etrailer before and am very satisfied with their products and service .


I now have 9780+ miles on this item.
am going to replace the bearings. They still roll but one is getting a tick. About to go out. I guess I'd rather change them now as opposed to a 1000 miles from home.


I have used etrailer several times and the experience is always the same... the correct parts at a fair price and delivered when they said it would be.


Fit and function are great. Price and quality are spot on. I will be ordering from etrailer next time I need parts.


Worked well for our 1800lb pop up camper. Install was pretty simple.


Great job.


Work as advertised for my trailer build.


Professionally pregreased well apprecia ted.

  • How to Pick Out Trailer Brakes for a Aluma Trailer
    I attached a link to a page that has all of the 2,000 lb axle hub/drums we carry with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. What you will need to do is pull the bearings out of your current hubs and select the numbers you have from the filters on the page to see which will fit. Or if you can't find the numbers email me back with the diameter of the spindle where the bearings ride. On the product page for the hubs you end up going with there will be a related parts section where the correct...

  • What Size Trailer Hub Drums will Fit Behind 10 Inch Trailer Wheel
    There are brake assemblies that are compatible with 10 inch trailer wheels. 7 inch hub/drums will fit behind a 10 inch wheel. I attached a link to a page that has all of them listed. You will need to first determine what spindle you have on your trailer so that you can pick out the correct hubs. You can do this by the bearing numbers or with the spindle dimensions. I attached a picture that shows where to measure.

If by chance both of your bearings are L44649 you could use the part # AKHD-545-2-EZ-2K which has the bolt pattern you need and the drum is 7 inch.

  • Determining The Correct Brake Assemblies For A 2007 Karavan SeaDoo Trailer
    The brake kit needed is going to depend on the axle capacity. Most likely you'll have a 2k axle so once you have new spindles welded on with a brake flange the etrailer Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-2 would be a great option to install. Keep in mind that there is a lefthand and righthand to these assemblies (small brake pad will face towards the trailer tongue). Once you have your brake assemblies in place you'll need to swap out the old idler hubs for a hub and drum kit. The fitment...

  • Replacement Hubs for Boat Trailer with L44549 Inner and Outer Bearings
    I'm guessing you actually have bearings # L44649 and you either mistyped or the bearing number is difficult to read. Having # L44649 as both the inner and outer is a very popular combination on 2,000 pound axles. If you need to verify to be sure this is what you have measure the inner diameter of the bearings with a digital caliper, like part # PTW80157. It should meaure 1.063 inches. I've also done some research and found that bearing L44549 has the same dimensions as # L44649 so it...

  • What is the Difference Between the 1k and 2k Hubs for EZ Lube Axles

An EZ-Lube spindle, such as part # TRU44FR, has a grease zerk fitting to allow you to pump grease into the hub bore and bearings. A Bearing Buddy will not fit with an EZ-Lube spindle.
