Trailer Hubs for Boat Trailer with Short Stubby Spindle


Do you have an hub that measures 3.5 in through the center of the hub it on an old boat trailer


Expert Reply:

The trailer idler hubs we carry are all around 4-1/2" deep. It sounds like you have the short stubby spindle used on old boat trailers and we do not offer trailer hubs for these spindles unfortunately. I understand if you would like to keep looking but if you like, we can offer you a replacement axle that will allow you to use pretty much any standard trailer hub assuming the bearings are correct. In order to do this I would need the hub face and spring center measurements of the axle you have now (see photo).

For example, the Dexter Idler Trailer Axle w/ Hubs part # 20545I-EZ-60-10 measures 60" from hub face to hub face and 48" from spring center to spring center. The spring center measurement can however be modified.
