The born-on date is "0408" (I didn't know such a thing existed) This 2009 camper was special ordered with a high-angle torsion axle
and the 15" tires. The camper sat very high, making blocking necessary every time you set up camp. It also meant the camper is very tilted when attached to the car, even with the highest hitch available. I knew that people prefer bigger tires. The factory said 15 would not fit with the normal axle
. My previous camper had 13, so heck, 14 sounded pretty good to me. There apparently is no difference in how the camper handles so I assume it is a question of tire wear? Anyway we have a normal axle
and 14" tires now.
