Tread wear. Easy access.

Ever lay there in the trailer and wonder about your tread wear?
Install an easy viewing port. All you need to do is blow a tire and turn on the steel cable reinforced rubber tire weed eater.

Peace and Blessings..

So sad to hear / see that about your Vintage AS. Our TPMS has saved our bacon four times so far. Hope repairs can be made, and good as new, or better.

On the bright side, you don't have the miles of plumbing and wiring that would have been shredded if you had a newer trailer.
If you have a single axle trailer, I saw a clever replacement once that involved a galvanized steel washtub. It just happened to have the right curvature, and the owner would never again have a destroyed wheelwell.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
