I am looking for an odometer for my 16 ft open trailer. I was hoping to find a hub odometer similar to which you would find on the big 18 wheeler trailers.
This would help in easing the calculations to tire rotation and brake replacement. I am manually writing my mileage now, when my trailer is connected.
Maybe someone knows where I can find an odometer, or of another method, besides rotating the first of every month.
Thanks.

That sounds like a cool thing just to have. I'm curious...

Just yesterday, I was thinking the same thing. But I don't rotate my tires that often, I was curious as to how many actual business miles were on this trailer/truck combo. I do a milage write off on the truck that pulls my trailer, and I don't always write the miles down, as to the other truck is a lease. The other plow truck maybe see's 5000 miles a year.

Mine were bought at a heavy truck parts store. There are sold, and calibrated for the rim/tire size you need. :)

Spoke to stemco.com a few months ago. They said they did not have anything for small trailers, they were all for big rigs. I'll contact them again to see if things changed.
Thanks for the two sites.
