Popped rivet near the top door

I got on this thread hopping to learn. I have noticed a popped rivet near the top hinge side of my door. Is this something common? Is it important to fix before I take another trip?

This could be a symptom of the trailer not getting a smooth ride. I would assume that the axles are good on a 1995 so I would check that the wheels are properly balanced. Yes, I know the guy at the tire store said it doesn't matter on a trailer. Do you have load range E tires on a trailer that should have load range D?

Yes, load range E. They were brand new just over a year ago when I bought the trailer and the previous owner was very proud of the fact that they were load rang E and he had the maximum air psi (80) in them. I didn't know the difference until I read the service manual and then lowered the air to 50 psi for a smoother ride. When the tires need replacing I definitely will be getting some more flexible ones.

I didn't mean to imply that you shouldn't have load range E. I just suggest that the trailer should have what the trailer should have and they should be balanced. 34', does that have 6 tires? What is the gross weight? I think its Goodyear that publishes a tire pressure by weight guide. They call it something else...
