No issues so far. Tires are 1 year old Trail Express with about 1500 miles on them last year. Usually run at 65 MPH or less with perhaps 100 miles total between 65 and 75 MPH. Camper stored in our attached garage (stays above freezing, no UV) between trips.

But then we have an A-frame (single axle) which we typically weigh in at about 2600 lbs (3100 lb GVWR). For reasons not totally obvious to me, PUP and A-frame owners do not seem to suffer nearly as much from the "China bomb" syndrome.

Perhaps the single axle isn't nearly as hard on tires, or perhaps the smaller tire sizes have more reserve capacity built-in, or ....(fill in your own theory).

I do a visual inspection of the tires, and inflate to 50-53 PSI (depends on expected temps for trip) before each trip (2-4 days).

just my experiences

I had a Trail Express pop on my V-Lite. I want to upgrade from C load range to D. I was told the rims may not stand the higher pressure. The rims came with the tire and are rated for 2150 lbs. it says nothing about higher pressure. Anyone done this?

Yes I have done that when I switched to a Marathron D rated CP is 65 lbs. that I run them at. Do you have the series 6 rims ? I'll attach the chart from Lionhead. The rims can hold alot more pressure then that. I have not had any problems in the last 2 years knock on wood.

I do have the series 6 rims. Thank you for the chart. This was very helpful. I'm going with Ds. Thanks.
