Just bought a 1990 32-foot Excella 1000.
I think you have great taste: we just bought a 1990 32-foot Excella, last evening !!!
I was told the 32' was not a popular trailer, I guess we are changing that trend.
Ours came with tires described by the saleman as "very good". Yes, full depth of thread. He forgot to mention the cracked sidewalls from sitting for years, the LT with load range C. Which give 6000Lbs rating for a 8300Lbs trailer. It drew a complete blank. More incompetance I guess than malice: he did not even told us they were selling the Marathon at the dealership !!!!
You just paid $87 for the Marathon. Where ?
We have been trying to compare not only $, but warranty. We used to buy at Sam's Club (about $100 mounted with lifetime warranty)
We tried to check with Goodyear on their warranty (more Goodyear dealers than SC when traveling). Cannot find anything about it. They say: "we are in the process of reworking the terms of our warranty".
Don't know yet if we are going to be able to shop for these tires later on, or we may have to put tires on this thing when we pick it up (160miles, mostly back roads, and we'll take our spare just in case).
Anything you may have on your current warranty will be very appreciated.
