I thought it might be fun to have a thread to share info about using an RV for camping. For instance, I am on my third RV which is a travel trailer. I have had large and small but the one i have now is the longest I have had the same one (5 years now). I have never been warned or told by the dealer that you need to replace RV tires every 5 years whether the miles are a lot or few. I had two blow outs on the summer long haul camping trip. When I mentioned it to the dealer, they suggested that I read more and complain less. I guess after the sale they don't care. Anyway, passing the info along to those of you approaching 5 years of your RV tires or considering RV ownership, the tires are a big deal when traveling 70 miles an hour in the middle lane of a three lane interstate.
Please share your experiences that might help others!

Seems to me it would be dangerous to be towing a camper at 70 mph even on new tires!!

Not anymore dangerous than the trucks going faster. Of Course you do slow down going up hill.
My summer was camping but not in RV, I tent came and had a blast this year. I have a new truck tent, works great. We had a rain shower but we were up on the truck bed asleep and very dry.
Similar to pop up camping but you don't have the expense.
