Caravan Bearings | Kits | Seals | Dust Caps | Japanese kits to 4.5t.
If you’re looking for bearing kits or caravan spares in Australia, look no further than calling Couplemate or using our store locator.
Stores are not owned by Couplemate however, they are a good place to start looking for your spare parts.
Bearing kits, seals and parts like dust caps are all important components to keep caravan running. We only use Japanese bearings for low wear capacity on highways. It is a good idea to check your bearings a month before setting out on that holiday.
Why Japanese Bearing Kits?
When considering caravan bearings, it is wise to select Japanese bearings rather than no name, Chinese or Indian bearings.
For years Couplemate used Chinese bearings and we regret it. The cost of warranty work was huge, however, the customer dis-satisfaction level larger and persuaded us to dump all bearings with the exception of Japanese bearings.
In the last 10 years, we have had zero complaints from Japanese bearings. Problems from collapsed bearings have been found to originate from lack of servicing, magnet wear or brake wear.
The Importance Of Seals In Your Bearing Kit
One of the most important things about bearing kits is the often forgotten seal.
At Couplemate, we’re not all for the 100% rubber seal; we’d rather suggest a rubber seal with a metal outer. These have a spring around the inner rubber lip, to put a little tension on the axle journal—a great way to close the gap of 0.01mm.
We also do not suggest seals with a rubber outer casing, as they are difficult to install and are generally a low-quality seal.
