Sorry to disagree, but camber has nothing to do with tire cupping. Cupping is strictly a balance or combination of worn out shocks and unbalance.

Upgrade your tires to a higher load range and higher speed rating as soon as you can. I found Taskmaster Load Range D ST 215/75 R14's rated for 81 mph at They keep it a secret for some reason. The only place they mention it is in the video about the tires. When a trailer tire blows, it is big. I've replaced two fenders on my boat trailer because of blowouts. You might have to replace a lot more on your travel trailer.

The stock tires on my TT all blew out at almost exactly 5000 miles, within days of each other. Of course, I was on the Alaska highway at the time, so the conditions were not the best for tire preservation. But I thought it was a strange coincidence that they went almost simultaneously.
