Would like to know proper air pressure to keep in tires of my 2001 19 ft. Bambi. tires are ST 225-75R-15. Trailer is very lightly loaded. Thanks in advance.

Airstream publishes the manual for your trailer online at the link above. Page I-1 states that the correct tire pressure is 65 psi for a tire that has not been driven on that day (i.e. cold).

The tire sidewall will indicate the load range. Likely load range D which, as indicated above, is 65 psi, cold. If it is a different load range, the sidewall will also specify the maximum pressure which is what I would use.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us.

I believe that I would rum the recommended maximum pressure of 65psi. With a single axle trailer, I would not want to chance tire failure from an underinflated tire becoming too hot.
