After reading a bunch of threads I feel very confused about if we bought a nicer Jay Flight or a lesser one. We had basically no time to research because of a weird life situation. So we just went with this one - mainly because it was available!

Ours says JayFlight SLX 264BHW.

We have a 2018 Whitehawk 27RB. We just had a Lippert 4400# axle go back. Spun bearings and ruined spindle. Is this common?

Depends.
Lippert recommends 12/mo 12,000 miles for a bearing inspection and repack. Even more critical with a new trailer as you never know how well the bearings were greased or adjusted from the factory.

Was proper maintenance done?

It has less than 4000 miles on it. It was never recommended to have it done as a new trailer. It has had ‘one pump’ annually, as recommended. We were not told abt 12 month service!

I agree it sounds silly when comparing it to automobiles that usually NEVER have a repack, but if you read your axle manual it states "12/mo 12,000 miles for a bearing inspection and repack".
One pump? I guarantee your hubs were dry, the factory puts very little grease on the bearings. My 5er takes about 1/4 tube of grease just to fill one hub after a repack.

As I stated, probably the most crucial repack would be the first one.
