    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. :)
