I want to start out by saying we love our Riverside White Water Retro 181! We did however have a small issue with our axle. We live in St. George, Utah and drove to Murray, Utah to purchase the trailer. Everything was fine on the drive home and then we took the trailer out that weekend and all was fine. When we got home we noticed one of our tires was rubbed down so much that the tread was missing on half of the tire. We called the dealer and they helped us navigate a way for us to get it fixed locally. Turns out there was a recall for the axle in the 176s model but our 181 model was not part of the recall even though our model had the same issue as the 176s model. We are in process of receiving a new axle and it’s covered under our warranty, the only issue is it takes a while for the axle to be shipped out from the manufacturer. We figured this would be a great time to also get the white walled retro tires put on as our tires were plain black tires. Just as a precaution always check your tires and the outside of the trailer before and after each trip. Can you imagine how scary that would have been having a blow out with a travel trailer? Eek!

oh great info. I really do not want to get in a blow out. I will be checking the tires all the time and bought a digital psi checker (thingy)

This is what the tire looked like after only 300 Miles. We didn’t notice anything like this before we left on our trip but we also didn’t think to check the tires either. We will be checking the tires always from now on. I felt sick when I thought about how we were driving on this with our two kids and three dogs in the car!
