May money is on it being over inflated.

No weights on the tires at all. I hope that's the problem. I'd feel better about getting it where I need to be and back home. We have a few trailers at work and I have a cargo trailer at home and none of them have balanced tires. I don't know why but I suppose that if a tires was really goofy, it could do cause cupping. Its just weird that it never showed up until now, unless I just missed it. I also feel the tires when we stop for fuel and they fon't feel hot. Slightly warm but no different than the truck. Could removing and reinstalling the brake assembly cause an alignment issue? I tought about how it was jacked up but even if the axle was jacked from the middle I'd think it would have tipped the tire out and wrecked the outside tread. Now for the shameless plug: We are a competition BBQ team from SD and we pulled it to KC for the American Royal Invitational BBQ and left it there for a couple of weeks until we pass through on our was to Lynchburg, TN to compete in the Jack Daniels World Championship Invitational BBQ!!! Before all of this, we'd have been lucky to drive 100 miles from home.

Shameless indeed!

How about I PM my mailing address so I can verify the quality of your BBQ.

He said he swapped the cupped tire with the spare. But has not pulled it yet. So he needs to just keep a eye on it.

I have about 20 miles on the brand new spare now which has the same load rating as the rest. I'll pull it 200 miles before camping overnight and then 450 the next day to Lynchburg.

An overly hard tire will bounce, Remember that we have no "shocks" per se to smooth out the road shocks. Once they start bouncing they will start to wear funny (well not so funny). Cupping is a sign of bad shocks in an automobile.

I still question how a C rated tire would up on that camper with 4 other Ds (3 on axles and 1 on the spare carrier).

I'm reasonably sure that it has a D stamp on it. It is rated at 2150#, the others had a D stamp but were rated something like 2450#. The only thing I can come up with is the tire supplier mistakingly had them together and delivered them to the tire dealer that way and along the way nobldy noticed. Appearancewise, they all look the same. Even after I discovered the cupping and the rated max pressure, I sat there staring at the 2 side by side and couldn't see any difference. I can't wait to get them home so I can look again. Maybe even post a pic.
