This happened yesterday on my way home from the Smokey Mountains in North Carolina (I’m in St. Louis). It was my last trip of the year, and by far my longest–both in distance and length of time away: 700 miles, 10 days.

It was the end of my third camping season with this trailer (Salem Hemisphere 310BHI), and I already had new tires planned with my RV guy for the off-season. Almost made it.

It blew on highway 24 in the middle of Kentucky. I was close enough to an exit, that after confirming no major structural damage, I limped it up the ramp on the good axle. Found a big gravel lot right there, and with the help of the buddy I was caravanning with, we got it lifted and put on the spare. Made it home safely.

Happy camping and safe travels out there!


I’ve got the same Ridgeways on my single axel. They are two years old with one year of use and about 3K miles on them. I got a TPMS in March but going to replace them GY Endurance at the beginning of next year.


lucky, doesnt look like it tore up anything else!


Wonder if a tpms could have warned you. Sucks either way.




That sucks
