This is what I typically do...but it's time to get a light/wiring replacement, so I'm going sealed LED's and wiring will be a bit more involved. Also replacing the wood deck.
If you have to replace bearings/seals, buy 3 or 4 of each when you do it. It's nice to have a spare on hand in the middle of nowhere.
Did I mention the time I didn't have my bearing part number, and tore out an $11 seal to get the p/n for a $7 bearing?
Anything more than 1/2hr from home and I have my bearing service kit with new seals, grease, and bearings in the tow vehicle with tool kit.
