If it were a bearing problem it would have been hot when you touched it.
I had a problem last summer one side was to hot to touch turned out that it was the brake on one side.

When I replaced the brakes I also replaced the bearings as the dust seals were gone anyway.

China makes good stuff and bad. If they are held to a tight quality specification (think iphones), their products are fine.

Strange sound...

I suspect one of your trailer' wheel has it's nuts/bolts loose. Re-tighten them and torque as spec. The next thing is checking brakes if trailer is equipped with brakes..

And there is always the exciting possibility of a cracked wheel, usually where the wheel center is attached to the rim.

Let us know what you found.
