New to Site and have a question about wheel bearings

We are very excited about finding a Compact Jr that was built in 1971 the year we were married. It will be a project that we are looking forward to starting. We pick it up next month and it has sat for a long time and I want to take a set of wheel bearing with me. Does anyone that has a Compact Jr know what size bearing set i need to purchase?
Thanks

I can't help, but wanted to welcome you to FiberglassRV. There's a number of Compact Jr owners that hang out here. Hopefully one of them will be able to answer your question soon!

If it's not too grungy, clean the bearing well and you will probably find the numbers stamped into the sides if the bearing race. Or take one with you when you go shopping for a new one.

Welcome to the forum. You may well want to repack the bearings to be sure you have functional grease there, depending on how long the trailer has sat. For us, after making several trips, we chose to replace the axle so that we could have added confidence with electric brakes. After a few trips, we began to have a better understanding about how we needed the trailer o work for us.
