When my off brand blew on my 08 Flagstaff with less than 5,000 miles on it, the comp. ins covered the trailer and because I had bought 4 new GY Marathon LRD tires, they even waived the deductible. The damage to mine was $1800 and change. I repaired it myself after the body shop ordered a new lower panel for me. I still have about 6' of the panel if you need it, you can have it. I have a friend that can take it to Goshen if you can get it from Goshen to Chgo.

Sometimes the premium increase(s) because you file a claim is(are) more than the claim itself, so beware.

Thanks OldCoot. It's mostly foam and what appears to be Tyvek. I believe I can fix it once home. Very nice of you regardless. You guys are great!

Last year at Goshen someone was selling tires. I didn't pay any attention because I wasn't interested at the time. Does anyone remember what they were selling and what kind of prices they were asking?

This was a fact for all insurers at one time; many (if not most) have accident forgiveness now for "at fault" accidents. USAA has that now too. Did not help me in my fender bender 10 years ago though; a 10% increase in liability and collision (nothing else) for 3 years;then back to normal.

Comprehensive claims are "act of god" stuff (road trash falls in this category) and is not considered a "fault" accident. However (as my grandfather found out), claiming every nickle and dime over the years (windshield cracks, headlight broken, etc) bit him in the butt when my aunt started to drive and had her first accident. His long comprehensive history was added to the one chargeable accident and he found himself and his family in "high risk" all at once.

I sure wish those Goodyear tires were made like they used to be. I bought a used trailer back around `95 (a Layton 2250), and put new Marathons on it immediately.

Now I know it wasn`t that heavy a trailer (3700 dry), but it got towed a lot. Numerous trips to the Black Hills and ND badlands (maybe 11 times), all through western Canada, Montana, Minnesota. etc.

Never had an issue, never had a flat, never put the spare on.

They were still on the trailer when I delivered it to its new owners last Friday.
So if my math is right, you sold a trailer with 19 year old tires on it?

Wow. Rule of thumb is no more than 7 years. You almost tripled that.

They did the same on my Marathons. And the Michelins on my wife's cars.

Good luck with your new GY tires. But they're not called China bombs without good reason.
Next time you need tires, go with either Maxxis or Kumho ST tires. They're the only ST tires not made in China. Be sure to have your new tires balanced and install steel valve stems.
