I have a SmartTote that I have been using for the past three years. I full time and volunteer for 4 months each summer at a state park where I use the tote weekly. It has now been in service for 10 months total and I just experienced a front wheel failure (I am approx 3/4 mile to the dump). The tread on one of the two front wheels split. I tried to find a Thetford replacement and it is a complete front wheel assembly for $59.95. Unfortunately the don't sell direct and none of their dealers that I could find stock this item. All quoted 4-6 week delivery. Since I use this unit weekly now, the parts might as well not be available.
I went to Home Depot and found a replacement wheel for $9.00 each and I just replaced both of them. Problem solved and it looks like a better wheel as well. Time will tell, but I now know where to get replacements locally.
