Recently we were invited to open an Amazon Storefront. Now all of the products I mention or show on our YouTube channel that I purchase on Amazon are all in one place for your review. Prices are exactly the same as on the regular Amazon.com pages but through our store we get a very small commission on each product you purchase.
After reading example after example of the Goodyear Marathon tires having catastrophic failures on Airstream travel trailers I decided I did not want to have the same thing happen to me. I went round and round in my head between the different options other owners have done – from new wheels with light truck tires to different brands of tires. I finally decided that I would use the Endurance models that are the exact size as the factory put on my trailer when new. At the same time I added the Centramatics mainly as a feel good measure. During the video I show and talk about the torque setting to use is 90 but after a couple of viewers pointed out that I was using the wrong setting I looked it up and was proven wrong. Make sure you check your manual – I should of used 110 foot pounds instead of what I say/show in the video.
This is another edition of the video series for my wife to reference if she ever wants to go camping without me or with a friend. In this video I go over the specifics of hooking up our Airstream to our Ford Raptor with the Equalizer hitch. Most but not all of the techniques will translate to various other combinations of trailer/truck/hitch’s out there.
