Rim Size

anybody know what size rims are on a 30BHSS, I had a bad experience a few years ago and want to carry two spares now. I have extra tires and need to get a rim that will match.

I will not be mounting these on the rear bumper, when I first got the camper I attached a bumper mounted bike rack to my camper and the bumper started to fall off going down the interstate. I have had everything welded back together and extra braces added since.

If you look on the left front corner of your camper there should be a white sticker with that info on it.

I ended up getting from a tire store for $42 bucks. I called my closest RV dealer and they quoted me $74, but she said the price might be higher, it was a old catalog. It pays to shop around..

Make sure the wheels are rated for the GVWR of your trailer. I bought a couple of wheels from my RV dealer, and they were only rated for 1500 lbs. At that time I had a lightweight Trailmanor, but the single axle was over 3000 lbs., and I ended up getting ordering 2600 lb. wheels online.

If the camping ready weight of your camper over 6000 lbs. with tandem axles, then 1500 lb. wheels might not be enough.

The 2600 lb. rated wheels that I bought for my Trailmanor were a 5 lug, 4 1/2" bolt pattern. I haven't checked out the wheel weight rating on my Surveyor, but hopefully they wouldn't have put less than 1750s on there, as the axles are rated at 3500 lbs. each, and the total gross weight is 7559 (2 3500 lb axles, plus the "advertised" tongue weight of 559 lbs.).
