True, I jumped on that too quickly, Try this one:

Travel trailer tires. The tires you buy for towing on the go should be appropriate for the trailer and load. Most people don't use travel trailer tires all year long, so when it's time to use them again, make sure to check for cracking and wear on the tires. Making sure you rotate your travel trailer tires or pop-up trailer tires is a great way to save on maintenance and prevent flat spots. Having a professional check your tires is a good idea so you don't get on the road and need a new tire. This situation could be a hassle at best and an expensive mistake at worst.

I also was thinking about using a X but have never heard of anyone rotating, I have been happy with them so far and plan on one more season before replacement or trade in.

My trailer sits at home in a metal shelter. The left side faces west and
is only partially shaded. The right side is almost total shade. I noticed slight
age cracking in the sunny side so I swapped sides a couple years ago when
I was doing brake/bearing maintenance.

Lately I notice that one tire on the left side is wearing more than all the rest.
I probably need an axle alignment but since the tires are about at the end of
life due to age and some minor cracking I'll probably just replace them and
watch the new ones for any excessive wear.

I guess that's a long way of saying I rotate them if they look like they
need it. Otherwise why bother? The whole idea of rotating tires is to try and
get more even wear. If your tires show more or less even wear I see no real
advantage to rotating. The best way to rotate them is by heading down
the road to your favorite camping spot!
