If you keep the new tires pumped to max sidewall pressure, you might get one year on them, but not much more. I personally won't pull a new camper off the dealers lot with factory tires. I switch to GY Marathons LR D @ the dealer. Might want to try to get the dealer to do something.

Had mine 1 season. Love the trailer - small issues - nothing design wise except the bottom of kitchen slide darco fabric wearing - dealer repaired all. Just went to an rv show and decided I would buy mine again before what I saw there.. Truck is a duramax diesel and tows the trailer GREAT. We go over huge passes every trip. Upgrades to trailer include a maxx fan w/remote in bedroom and fantastic fan (create a breeze)in bathroom. AE slide toppers. 2- 6volt golf cart US batteries. Looking into solar but may wait untill we actually do more dry camping. I have a yamaha 2400is I will be testing with the dometic hc air to see if it will go. Not likely but since the dometic is advertised as "most energy efficient" and does appear to have a start capacitor - maybe - we'll see. Also just bought a progressive industries pt50c for park power protection (I've been in some bad ones).

Would like to talk to you on phone have some questions. I haven't picked mine up yet but I am concerned about my truck being to high & carryin this camper nose high. Do you have 15 or 16 inch tires? When I bought the camper the salesman told me it had 16 after deal was made I found out it had 15" they refuse to make it right & insist it wont madder. Was wondering if you could level yours then measure how high it was to the bottom of pin box.I thinking the 16" wheels will lift the rear of camper 2".My nearest dealer is 135 miles away so I don't want to make the trip til its ready to pick up.In the deal I had them change the furniture from light to dark & in stall a fantastic fan in kitchen.Had to get factory to ship the furniture.That is why I haven't picked it up yet.Thanks I think I send you a message with my home phone number.

Not comfortable with the telephone idea, sorry. I will say if I were you I would hold out for the 16 inch wheels. Not only did it avoid the nose high issue for me but also allows me to mount e rated LT tires in future.

I replaced the original RoadRider D tires on our Crusader 209RLT after 2 seasons and over 10,000 miles with Gladiator load range E ST tires, and have had no issues.
I strongly advise you add a TPMS system for peace of mind when towing, as it takes the guesswork out of the trailer tires' pressure and temperature while towing.

Tow Max

Good to hear. I replaced the tires on my 2010 Flagstaff 829FKSS with 10 ply Tow Max tires. The original 4 ply tires were all heat checked after 2 years.
