I have mine on crushed concrete. would it help the tires life to be on something more solid?

If you want you can dig out where the tires sit and put patio blocks to park on. I did that at the storage lot where I use to store our TT.

I stored a couple of different TT's on gravel for decades and it worked fine. no harn to tires or whatever. I poured a slab for the latest trailer but more for luxury than anything else.

I pull up on on two 6 ft. 2x12s. Our yard is mostly grass on sand, the boards keep the tires from settling into the sand. More importantly, my yard is very shady so sun damage is not an issue.

We keep the tire pressure up and do a fair number of outings so flat spots have not been an issue.


Twenty six foot 2010 Dutchmen Lite pulled with a 2011 EcoBoost F-150 4x4.

Just right for Grandpa, Grandma and the dog.

That's fine. I have 2 small concrete pads for the tires, but that's just to keep it level so I can turn the fridge on before trips.

Gravel the entire life of the RV. Driveway gravel grade 8 limestone. Do not, repeat, do not, use the pretty round colorful pebbles. They just slide around and the tires do not get any traction.

Texas. The UV will degrade them. The gravel, not so much. But you probably have them covered.
