OK, could not find the maxxi, got greenball towmaster at Costco

I would have gone with Maxxis, but no one in Phoenix carries them locally, and I have reservations in Sequoia in a couple of days, then Yosemite after that. I can't get behind schedule or my 6 week trip gets very complicated.

I went to Costco and got the Greenball Towmaster, load e. Yes, they are made in China, but it seems they all are. At least when I google the reviews I don't read the many negative reviews that Carlisle and Marathons get. Hope I made the right choice, I had to make a quick decision,, and Costco had these in stock.

I will let you know.

Good luck, hope the rest of the trip goes well!!!

Concerning the Carlisle, from my understanding it is the older models that were the issue. Since the introduction of the RH's (maybe even a little before that), there have been a lot of positive reviews.

Have a fun and safe trip!!!

Best thing about buying at Costco is the warranty/customer service..
