Not perfect, but a TPMS could really help prevent these things. The technology and cost of systems these days make them a great option. Now, they do not make speeding or not being buckled in smart moves, but a good system gives an extra layer of protection. Before we take our first long distance trip with more highway miles at higher speeds, our 31FS will have a TPMS on board!

TPMS was mandated in passenger vehicles and light trucks a few years ago... Are MHs exempt from the mandate?

I would guess yes as they are not factory installed, or even a factory option.

I think the new Super Cs have them but their build on real semi tractor chassis.

... that might have turned out a lot different if he had been driving the speed that I see most motorhomes (piloted by old-timers) drive at. Most motorhomes I see on the highway are travelling well under the posted speed limit and seem to be extra cautious.

I'd rather wear out than rust out. Swim, bike, run.

Scary indeed. Summer of 2013, my wife and I were westbound on a busy highway in northern Alberta. An oncoming gravel truck lost his right front steering tire. I noticed the right side of the truck suddenly seem to start growing bigger. Sure enough, the tire came out from the truck and crossed the highway behind us. I can only imagine the phone call from that poor driver to the shop.
