This was my horse trailer not my camper. Came home from a trip and parked the trailer. Unloaded the horses and was walking back towards the trailer when I heard a loud Kaboom. No name tires were 8 years old. My Bad. Ordered Goodyear Endurance tires not only for the horse trailer but also for the 7 year old travel trailer. Grateful it blew while parked and not on the road.

Lucky You! I have had 2 similar experiences on two enclosed trailers, not RVs. Both times after returning from long trip, parked in driveway, one went flat immediately, steel cords sticking out the sidewall, and the other a nail in tread, flat in the morning. My only on the road issue, yup a blowout, about 2AM on New Years Eve, temp minus 10 F, high wind, blowing snow, no shoulder on road. That was a single axle, open sled trailer...don't want to talk about that one.

You are indeed lucky that it didn't blow on the road, especially with horses aboard!

Post yourself a sign in the barn to remind you to proactively replace those tires in August 2025, lest your luck run out.

You and the horse(s) are lucky this did not happen at speed. It is really important to exercise the tires on any vehicle to keep them flexible and plyable. I use a UV protector spray on the MH tires and any trailer we happen to have sitting for a couple of weeks or more. Safety and $$$

Good call on the ENDURANCE.

Maybe we can start recommending them next year when they have 3 years of solid real world use.

Neighbors just bought a TT made in Oregon that came with ENDURANCE tires.
