My dad pulled a 1976 24' Coachman from Missouri to California up the coast and to Nova Scotia and back to Missouri on tires he took off his 75 Ford Galaxy 500. Never had a problem. One had the whitewall scuffed so bad it was practically all white.

They were passenger car tires, not ST.

Passenger tires can be used on trailers today. Probably 35-40% of all tires found on large bass boat trailers are passenger tires. Regulations for boat trailers are the same as RV trailers. However, using them on RV trailers becomes more difficult because of the passenger tire's lower load carrying capabilities after being derated by about 10% for trailer axle service.

Well at some point my neighbor used his trailer again, I guess to winterize it. Those tires are now aired up and he has boards under them. Maybe next spring he will replace those tires.

No he won't.

One of those tires will pop and blow the plastic fender skirt off. Then he'll jump on some RV forum and blame the tire or the trailer manufacturer, or the dealer, or the storage location owner!
