I called local Goodyear Auto store and one outside of town. Both had same answer that they’re on back order.
A hazard of RV-ing is that many campers use their "work trucks" to tow RVs. Add to that the fact that many campgrounds are off the beaten path a bit (with rougher roads on the way in), and I've collected more than my share of sheetrock and deck screws and nails in both my RV tires and my TV tires.
Sloppy/lazy TV prep obviously threatens the perpetrator's RV tires, too, but most are too lazy to clean out their TV's bed/cargo area, and one thing leads to another. It goes with the territory...sadly.
As for mixing brands of tires, it's not ideal, but it's also not a big deal. Why? There are no driven wheels on a travel trailer or fiver. A slight difference in circumference won't eat up a differential. The worst case scenario is that the slightly larger tire on a trailer will carry a slightly larger portion of the load on that pair (or trio) of axles. Don't worry about it.
