Brother in law just bought a couple of Carlisle tires (OEM) for his Jayco online at Wal Mart. Half the price of what he could find in the Buffalo, NY area. Had the tires shipped to a local super WM and they installed for free. By the way, the reason he bought the tires is one of his, I believe road side rear was worn very similar to the one photo from the OP. His reasoning is that is the "drag" tire when his trailer is pivoting while backing into camp sites. Pretty handy knowledgeable guy that keeps a close eye on his rig and its equipment. Sounds reasonable to me.

Only if he has to back his rig several miles and moves every day

One thing a lot of people neglect re trailer tires as well is to rotate the tires (front to rear /rear to front) periodically as they do tend to wear at different frequencies. Also consider going to at least one higher load range from what the manufacturer installed. IE; load range C to E E to F or even G. Etc.so long as you can get it in your tire size.
This will give you a stiffer tire sidewall with less tendency to overstress when making sharp turns forward or back thus less chance of belt separations and premature blow outs.
