The same can often be said for some of us who are known to put fairly high milage on our trailers each year.

On a personal level, my body is wearing out long before my mind ages out.

Ya But... High use owners might have less tolerance for the problem if they scuffed through a set if tires every season, whereas the lighter user might not drive enough miles to do that in even 5 years.

LOL I wouldn't count on that.... a nice little older fiberglass trailer down the road from me went through if I am not mistaken 3 sets of tires in one season - two very long trips - before the owner caved in and put a new axle on it

I agree though if I went through a set of tires even in just two years even though a I have been known to put a few miles on the trailers tires each year I would be looking for the best place to get a new axle.
