We just got back to Connecticut after a 6 day trip out and back to pick up our 181B in Ludington Michigan.  We had a great trip and learned a lot on the way home with 4 nights of camping at various state parks from Lake Michigan to rural OH and PA. I will bore all of you with a more detailed post later this week. The attached photo is our trailer with the Big House /Michigan Stadium in the background. We toured it and went the a spring football practice. And the other photo is at our house.

It was truly, a great trip.  We had a great opportunity to see some different areas of the country while also picking up our trailer and having 1000 miles to begin learning about it.   The state park campgrounds we stayed at in Michigan, Ohio, and PA were great.

I’m curious on what tires did your Retro come with A.J?

Yes the tire brand, I’m curious if they are still putting the Coker white wheel tires on.

Yes, the tires are Coker.  Since getting home I have heard/learned that some people do not feel these are appropriate for a travel trailer.  What are your thoughts?

Well…. The facts are this tire is a car tire with a B load range, there have been reports of these tires exploding / blowing out. With that said I’ve read and talked to other people who have put 5000 miles on these tires without any issues and the truth is 95% of these Riverside Retro Travel Trailers are driving around with these tires since they come with them from the factory.  After doing investigation into finding a good replacement travel trailer tire I’ve come to the conclusion that there really is not a perfect tire. I’ve read review after review of people complaining about actual load range D travel trailer tires blowing out while towing.  Currently there are no whitewall travel trailer tires on the market so if you want White walls these are your best bet. I can’t tell if you should use them or not but at-least you have the facts.
