Wow, sounds just like my post. We were driving from the Tampa, FL area to NC for a week. Our Cougar 327RES is a 2010, we had our first blowout in Wildwood, Fl going up. Replaced that tire and heade to NC. In downtown Atlanta on I75 coming home we had our 2nd blowout. Changed that tire and immediatly stopped and bought new tires for the other two and the spare. Took our 5er into the shop today and are awaiting the estimate for repairs. Blowouts were on differen sides so we have extensive damage on both sides, bent frame, ripped both side panels off, wheel well covers and even tore the fabric on the underside of camper. Our camper is only two years old and we have made two trips to NC, 1 to GA and maybe 5 local 1 hr trips near home. Camper is not overloaded and we keep cold tire pressure at 79/80, check it regularly and keep the camper in a garage. After our 1st blowout, the tire tech told us all of our other tires looked good and he thought we had run over something on the interstate that caused the blowout so we did not consider replacing all 4 until the second blowout. Unfortunately neither spot had the Michelin Ribs available or we would have paid the extra money for those. Now we have 5 new tires at the cost of $800. For a few hundred more, we could have had much better tires and peace of mind but in an emergency, you get what you can get. Good luck with your camper repairs and thanks for letting me vent again! Other than this trip, we do love our camper!
