Wheel Hub Replacement

I put on new tires this year and found that one of the hubs needs to have the bearing replaced - a second one should be done also (I have a dual axle). This is my first year with the camper so I was somewhat surprised to see that the wheels have bolts and not stubs like a car - what a PAIN that is! So while I'm looking at doing the bearings I ran across replacement hubs that have studs and they're only a little more expensive than buying the bearings and caps - I'm looking at about $25 each (http://www.etrailer.com/Trailer-Hubs...r/34822BX.html). So my question is, has anyone every replaced their hubs with new ones? I'm not sure if it's worth it but I think all it would take is one dark night on the side of the road replacing a tire to convince me...
Thoughts? Suggestions?

Anything to make life easier. If they come with bearings it sounds like a great deal.

Wheel Hub Replacement

Sounds like a good idea and should work. I would find out if the bearings are american made or cheap china made. It does make a difference in how long they will last.

Thanks for the comments. I think I'm eventually going to do this, for now I'm pushing to get everything done for a Mt. Rushmore trip in two weeks. I'm not sure that I'm going to be able to get this part done but I'll at least have to do the bearing and cap on one wheel. Thanks again.
