As far as tires, i thought my cooper at3's were c rated but i dont see any load range c on them. They do handel 2679lbs each though which is right around c rating. Most seem to still have the p tires on their trucks.
They could be LT, but it sounds like they're P tires. My P tires are rated at 2601 lbs each.

I use LT tires on my Tundra pulling a 288BHS. It is a lot more stable than the stock tires.

I plan on getting LT tires when my tires need replacing. I have 12,000 miles on the current tires. If it's a safety thing, I'll probably end up replacing them.

For my first 3-1/2 years of towing, i ran P tires at the PSI that was recommended in my Tundra's owners manual (without towing a load). The Tundra always seemed a bit squishy/rolling when i was towing my camper. I was on the Tundra forum one day and read about inflating my TV tires to max PSI while towing. Your tires' tow rating is based on max PSI and under inflated tires means less pounds you should tow. This made sense to me... so before the next time out, i increased all my tires' PSI to the max, less 5psi (no real reason for less 5). What an amazing difference it made in my towing experience. No more squishy tires. Previously, I was insistent that when my truck needed new tires, i was going with LT's. Now... i'll most likely stick with the P's, depending on the price. I leave them inflated even when i'm not towing. I can't tell the difference in the ride comfort, so no reason to mess with them.

Max on mine is 44 PSI. Normally, I run them right at 40 (door says 39). I could increase them, but it would only be 4 PSI.

Any of you guys bought a winter cover yet? Brand/size recommendations?

Mine is under roof all year round, so no cover for me. However, to cover/not to cover seems to be an ongoing debate here and with others I meet. I do buy into the theory that the summer sun is more harmful to the camper than snow/ice. Have you looked around for indoor winter storage?

Just found a nice leak where the grey tank connects to the dump plumbing. Anyone else ever see this on a 288bhs? Other than that it's been three great years of trouble free camping in places a 28 footer has no place fitting!

I have. Sad to say there are none within an hour drive. I've thought about asking the storage lot where I park it (privately owned) if I could erect a cover that I'd leave if I ever broke my agreement.
