Wow, that's some industrial strength carnage! Glad to hear that you got it stopped without any damage and glad that it didn't ruin the kid's outing.

We have had that problem as well. As previously stated, the stock tires are crap.

If you said, I didn't see it but is your rig a toy hauler? If so, if you are carrying a full reserve of fuel and full holding tanks and a load of "toys", you may be exceeding the capabilities of the tires.

No damage to the TT, but it took me about 20 minutes to change the tire and get back on the road. We had a Highway Patrol man stop behind us and put his lights on for "Our Safety". It was a two lane highway and we were on the shoulder as far over as I safely could be. Super friendly gentleman and offered to help any way he could.
You were very fortunate. I had a blowout on my Windjammer and it did almost $500 in damage (that was parts only, I fixed it myself).
Also it happened on a 6 lane interstate and the other drivers wouldn't get out of the lane next to me, just kept blowing by at 80 mph when I was trying to change the tire. The semis were actually rocking my trailer as they flew past.

You can add roadside assistance to your insurance for just a few dollars a month. Let a professional with large jacks do that. Well worth the small cost.

Can you give a location of the ditch? My grandkids want to go there now!




Just kidding glad no one was hurt including the trailer. Looks like you were lucky with no damage to the trailer.

Tire pressure monitor is a must have in my opinion. It has saved me several times. I bought mine after a violent blowout on a south Texas interstate in July.

You are very fortunate to have no sidewall damage. Last time mine was several thousand dollars damage.

I understand Jayco is going to Goodyear tires in 2017. FYI

And still made in China with a few exceptions.
