Yes, I am. 14" Trail Express. Religiously inflated before every trip to 50 PSI. 2K miles (approx) to date. I'm generally about 400 lbs under GVWR of the A-frame on our trips.
Previous PUP was a Coleman Westlake (heavier than the A-frame and loaded with more stuff). Ran the OEM tires from 2001 to 2007 without issue (sold in 2007 with about 10K miles).
Now that I know more about tires, I would have changed those out at 5 years due to aging. Since auto and truck tires are deemed to have a lifetime of 6 years, I now use 5 years for trailer tires because they see more abuse (sitting still, under-inflation, heavily loaded, never rotated, seldom balanced) and more UV light than car or truck tires.
