Also on trailers with more than one axel, if the trailer is high or low in the front (not level) will put more weight on either the front or rear axels & tires. Not defending the chinese junk, there are other things that come into play also. I do agree that upgrading the load range can solve allot of trouble. I'm not a tire guy, jmho.
This is very true and exactly why you DON'T put tires on a camper that are completely maxed out when fully loaded. I don't know of any way to get your camper weighed on each side, and I would bet that most of ours don't have a perfect 50/50 balance side to side. My Puma may be "entry level", but at least it came with 4400lb axles and 225/75-15 D (10,520+/- total rating for a 7K from the factory trailer) rated tires. Why on Earth the manufacturers insist on putting marginal tires and axles on campers that cost double or more than mine just blows my mind.
