Help with bell copilot model A trailer please

I came across a new condition bell copilot model A trailer for very cheap. This one exactly http://www.performancebike.com/bikes...551_1126649_-1 the only problem is it didn't come with wheels. I have some other trailer wheels that don't fit, the axle connection type/length being the issue. It looks to me is that it has a spring loaded piece on the axle slot that goes into a notch on the end of the axle. Does anybody have this trailer or able to tell me about the wheels/axle type on the included wheels? or any other advice? Thanks. I will get pics up asap.

this is the only axle I found that looks long enough and has that groove for this type of connection? The wheel looks very similar to the one in first link I posted.

read your own tape, your self. what are the numbers ?

Plastic spoked wheels like Skyway tough wheels have a pressed in pair of cartridge bearings .

if the As Is Bearing ID is not right buy another set of replacement bearings that Do Fit ,
and replace the ones they used

I guess I wasn't clear enough. Bearings are not the issue, it's the way the axles attach to the frame. I don't have a clue about trailers or the the wheels/axles that are commonly used. The axles of the wheels I have are clearly not made for this trailers type of setup. Like I said before, I am clueless and trying to gain some insight after researching this issue. I can read my tape just fine, the problem is I can't find on any website the axle length to see what I would need.
