New to Class C

Hello all,

I'm Alisa and live in Tennessee. I have been an avid camper for the last 10 years starting with a 20 year old Dutchmen Pop-Up; then moved to a 21' Winnebago trailer which I loved but was a little too small; then a 31' Heartland Mallard trailer-beautiful well built camper but was beginning to be a little much and got tired of hooking up, etc. Just purchased a 2019 Jayco Redhawk 22c SE and so excited about hopping in it and going (along with regular maintenance).

I am looking for a good RV mechanic in the Nashville area. Will be replacing the tires in the spring (any recommendations welcomed). Also looking for camping groups in my area to camp with. I have family and friends I camp with but would love to meet some new people.

Looking forward to chatting with you all!

Hi Alissa - welcome. As for tire recommendations, nothing will generate more discussion than this topic. Well, maybe "beans in chili or no beans" creates more. But its close...

My Class C came with Michelins and they were fine. Pricey but good. Michelin's had some quality bumps awhile back but most people find them to be excellent tires. Just a bit pricey IMHO.

I tried some Goodyear Wranglers on the front tires and they were OK. I was happy with them until one blew out. Probably not the fault of a tire. I hit a moon-crater sized pothole at 50MPH. But one did fail.

For the rear tires, on the suggestion of someone here, I tried Discount Tire's "Pathfinder" branded tires. Quite a bit less money than the Michelin's and so far, three years later, they've been great.

Good luck!
And, my vote is always "No beans in chili".

Saw your Camping Groups post first... FMCA has a tire buying program as one of the benefits since you're looking for tires.
