Guess the damage...

We had a tire blow out on a trip from Nashville to Mammoth Cave, KY late in the summer. Luckily, no other issues, not even close to loosing control, etc - just the pain in the butt of changing a tire, and of cource the damage below. The tires were the standard Goodyears from Jayco, 3 years old with good tread life, no visible damage, and were all within 1 PSI of the reccomended pressure before we left. I am guessing I hit something that caused pressure loss during the drive (about an hour and a half into the trip).

Anyway, since the damage was just cosmetice, and we moved shortly after the trip, I am just getting around to having it fixed now. I dropped the trailer off on Monday, and should be getting the quote back any day now. I thought we could all play a "closest to the pin" game and see what this'll run.

Here are the pictures:










I guess I am expected about $2.5k, but really have know idea as this is the first damage I have had to any of my campers.

Anyone else want to play?

And one more shot:


And a few of the tire, just for fun:








Also, note there is some bending on the rear (bathroom) door.

If it matters to anyones suggestion - the unit is a 2009 32 BHDS.

My guess is $4k.

You may have a claim with Goodyear tire if you pursue it. They are pretty good about paying for damage if it can be linked to tire failure and not a road hazard.

And you were not going faster than 65. That is what the Goodyear RV Trailer tires are rated for.

I am not an expert but that shure looks like a belt failure.

Another good reason for tire pressure monitors. I blew one and it took out the wheel well into the trailer.

Agree. Be sure to save the tire and then call Goodyear for filing a claim.

Haven't even had any luck finiding a number to call Goodyear, and have had a number of people tell me that would just claim it was caused by a road hazard anyway. Anyone got a number and I can give it a shot?

The number that I received for tire failure claims was 1-800-322-4682. They use to require two estimates. Have not had to file a claim myself but this was the information posted on another forum.
