Generally wheel bearing failure is due to improper packing or a missing dust cap..
Packing the bearings is a good idea anytime you have to remove the bearings for other maintenance.
Trailer bearing fail more often because the wheels are small and turn very fast compared to a car wheel.
If the bearings are not packed properly they will fail quickly
