Scott Ellinger at used to sell a
complete trailer spindle/bearing hinge that uses an
easy to find 2" bearing for about $40. I built one
for myself but didn't save too much. The trick is
getting the "hub" to weld to. I used a piece of
tubing that was close in size, welded a smaller piece
of tubing inside it for a bearing shoulder, and honed
it out large enough for my bearing race. Next time
I'm just going to have a machine shop bore the
shoulders in a piece of tubing.

There's a pic of the one I made at:

Good luck,
