What brand did you replace them with? The OEM tires on most RVs are time bombs. I replaced my TowMax LR-D with Maxxis LR-E at 3,000 just before a big trip just to prevent that from happening. 9,000 miles later they are still going strong.

Had a Big- O Tire shop....not a lot of choices in the matter, but went with the only trailer tire they had available. Brand called the Commodor in a 10 ply. Supposedly that is their signature tire.

Cute trailer. Bummer about the door/awning arrangement.

Wow! I thought I was looking at my set up. We have a FunfinderX 210UDS, pulled with a silver 2010 XLT Crew cab, with the same canopy topper. We really enjoy ours, it is just the right size with us and our two furry friends. What type of rack you have on the canopy, we are also looking to get some lightweight kayaks to take. Your trailer must be a different model, as the door on mine will open all the way with the awning out. If you can find my posts, check out the similar set up. Have a nice summer.

This camper is a full frame to tongue model, so this IS where the hitches end up.
As with most other brands of similar style.
Beats the hell outta the older style where the entire camper sat low enough to remove leveling jacks and plumbing from underneath under normal towing! Plus they were typically simply welding the a-frame portion of the tongue beneath the frame of the camper = even LOWER.
This sits nice and high!

What was up with the dealer is, all those pretty options add up real quick to pretty money. It's hard supporting multiple expensive habits and hobbies!
