Run without a single Wheel/Tire

I have heard a lot comments / questions about flat tires / no spare or no jack. Airstream says (in an emergency) you may run up to 100 miles at 30 mph with one Wheel/Tire removed. Without jack use leveling blocks or ramp under good axle to remove.

Personally? I call Good Sam!

When we were in Alaska on a caravan one trailer lost a wheel bearing that ripped out the side of the brake drum. We had extra bearings along, but not a drum. He pulled it 450 miles to White Horse at a low speed for almost 2 weeks on one wheel on that side. He left the trailer parked at the junction and went to Haines for the 3 days without the trailer. At Whitehorse he got the axle stub turned and got a new drum. So yes, you can limp in on one wheel on a side if you need to. Should replace both tires if you do so.
