Treadmagazine.co.uk shared this information about caravans and their tyres;

Out of season storage conditions can sometimes have a detrimental effect on motor caravan and trailer caravan tyres, so owners are advised to carry out a series of simple checks to ensure their safety on the road and the safety of their passengers and other road users:

Carefully examine tyres to ensure that there are no cuts or bulges and that the sidewalls are sound and not affected by ozone cracking.

Owners of trailer caravans with tyres that are over 7 years old should have them replaced irrespective of their condition.

Tyre pressures are vital and should be checked and adjusted in accordance with the manufacturer’s handbook.

Commenting on the importance of tyre safety, Martin Spencer, Caravan Club Technical Manager said. “Tyre condition is important to ensure that your caravan is safe, legal and reliable. Simple checks on these vital components, along with attention to issues like safe loading and sensible speed, help to make sure that you have an enjoyable and trouble free holiday journey.”
