Default Smoked bearing for dinner / help from Chicago

On the way home from the north woods last night my trailer tried to find out how far it could chuck a wheel. Thank God it did not hit anybody. All that is left is a cooked spindle, found the wheel though. Drum and hub cracked to nothing. The bearings were just greased and not a half hour before they were cool as could be at a gas stop. Well the boat is stranded about 50 miles north of Milwaukee safe at a boat dealer. The guy at the dealer said he has no idea how long it will take to find the parts. This does not work for me or the people that are planning to see some fireworks from the perfect view of Lake Michigan. So I need parts ASAP, spindle, drum/hub, bearings, linings. Who in Chicago / Milwaukee stocks trailer parts? I need this stuff now so I can go rescue my boat.
