All tires will have the recommended max pressure molded into the sidewall, in small numbers. It will be a 'cold' rating which means you check the pressure while the tire has been sitting awhile, not after pulling the trailer. Run it max cold pressure or slightly below for best wear characteristics and less rolling resistance.

Tyre Pressure for Majestic 19.6 ft Caravan


Depends also on the kind of tyre.
For the maximum load of tyre nex kinds need next pressure , wich is called AT-pressure/maxloadpressure/reference-pressure , for up to maximum speed of tyre or if lower 160km/99m/h. This is not the maximum pressure of tyre.

Normal car tyre /standardload AT 2.5bar/36psi ( exeptions as low as 2.2)
XL/Reinforced/Extraload AT 2.9bar/42psi ( exeptions 2.8 and 3.0)
6PR( plyrating) /C-load AT 3.8bar/55psi EUR ( USA 50psi/3.4bar)
8PR/D-load AT 4.5/4.8 bar/ 65/69/70 psi
From E -load is not often used in Europe.

From this AT pressure you can calculate the needed pressure for lower loads . Made spreadsheet for it in wich I first add 10% to the assumed load before calculating.
Will give example picture

What tyre pressure should we use for our Jayco Discovery Pop Top caravan?


There should be a max pressure on the tire. This would be a good start. Monitor the tire wear. If the center tread is wearing faster than drop the pressure a couple pounds. Typically trailer tires are run at the max pressure listed on the tire.

What is the correct tyre pressure for a 205/50/16


depending on the vehicle /weight and expected speed, 26-28 psi. heavy vehicle or travelling at high speed it can go up to 30psi. The recommended tyre pressure will be on the specification plate for wheels and tyres on the door edge or door opening pillar. Some makes of tyres have the tyre pressure moulded into the side wall of the tyre.

Tyre Pressures: The Handbook for my April 2002 reg. V70 Estate gives two tyre pressures for both the front and the rear tyres, but I am getting misleading advice about which is the correct one to use. At...


Hello, any pressure in between is fine, these are recommended pressures, i personally look at tyre wear when putting pressure, if its wearing on the outsides it means it has not enough pressure, if it wears in the middle it has too much pressure, as a general guide 32psi is used at most tyre shops, extra 100kg does not make much differance to a 2 ton vehicle, otherwise you would be changing tyre pressure every time you fill up your fuel tank!!!!

Car tends to sway when semi trucks pass me . I drive a 2002 gmc yukon xl denail with a 6 liter engine. I am pulling a 25 foot rv trailer . I wonder if the gmc has to soft a suspention


No. It's just a question of aerodynamics.

The current combination of vehicle plus the long trailer simply results in the vehicle being affected by the turbulent air created by a semi. All cars are affected to some extent, but as you're in a taller vehicle with a long trailer you're affected even more. Without wishing to criticise your vehicle choice, it's probably worse as it's a US design: although they're often very big and powerful, they do tend to handle like a boat compared to European and Asian models, but on the flipside you simply don't get many non-US models that are that are as big although many produce similar power output using smaller engines which are more modern and efficient.

All you can realistically do to minimise it is to ensure that your tyre pressures are correct and that there is no adverse wear to steering or suspension components. Also check that your towing hitch is at the right height and loading and that there's an effective tow-hitch stabiliser fitted which is appropriate for the size of the load. You'll also find that if you carry loads on the roof of your vehicle it will make matters far worse, so try to avoid doing so.
