If you’re looking to purchase bearings for your trailer, you might notice that sellers offer bearings as well as bearing kits. What’s the difference?
Bearings are exactly that: just the bearing. You can buy them individually or in bulk, but they include no other parts in the purchase.
Bearing kits contain more than just the bearings. They usually include races, seals, washers, and pins – with different components depending on the manufacturer and the kind you’re looking to purchase.
Prices between each vary by the seller, but while bearing kits are more expensive, you’re getting more for your money in the purchase. We recommend taking a look at your wheel and figuring out which option is best for you.
