We have listed out TT for sale after having decided on moving to a C class. I had decided last summer I would replace the tires this spring / summer due to age, which is starting our sixth season even though they " look good".
Plan was to tell potential buyers that the tires need replacing and work with them on the price. Well, I'm off today, it's nice, sunny, and breezy. I walk over to the TT to open the doors which I do when it's nice out, coffee in hand, and notice the front tire on the door side has separated, and bulged out!
This tire separated, and bulged out while parked in its RV garage on my property (washed TT two weeks ago to include the tires / rims and they were good).
I was a little angry for about two minutes, then thought about a potential buyer who could have picked it up, had a blow out, ruining a new / fun experience for the family. I also thought about, and was happy / lucky this did not occur on our trip home from the Keys a few weeks ago.
These are the original Load Star Karriers that came on the TT when purchased new. I had never had a issue them prior, and I'm just thankful / lucky it happened quietly in the garage....LOL.
