Saw your pics the day before we left for Gatlinburg Tennessee pulling the camper. I worried the whole time. We just got home yesterday and had no issues at all with tires or axles heating up. It was really nice to camp in the Smokey Mountains. our own camper

Hi all in this tread...

I need to chime in about the blown tires... we have a 2011 Passport Ultralight Limited edition that we bought brand new (3220BH). We have owned it for 4 years and have had a passenger front tire blow out 4 times now... same side, same tire... we have had rims replaced each time the tire blew out, and even had the axel replaced after the second blow-out because it was found that it was bent and still no safety... Keystone claims it isn't their problem. The dealer claims they have "never heard of such a thing"... we looked into "D" rated tires but they are tough to find in a 205/75R14 because supposedly "C" rated tires exceed the axel specifications. Did find some Karrier ST205/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range D but they are pricey... So here we are with a fairly new camper (and payment) and my wife feeling like we are placing our lives at risk on every trip. We watch the tire pressure, don't put anything but food, clothes, and cooking items in the camper, and the tires that have blown out have less than 1 years use on them... It has happened twice on Route 15, once on route 78, and once at a campground (believe it or not). Any suggestions or insight would be helpful.
