I would like to bump this post from the dead. I just read about everything i can find on super singled for RV's and most of all the stuff I find is about trucks. It looks to be that they have every advantage except redundancy. But! the front axle had only 2 tires and no one ever complains about that and if you run over something its gona hit there first. I keep coming to the conclusion in my mind its a good idea. I mean it couldn't be worse getting a flat in aSS tire then a FRONT tire right?

I gota post some pics because they do look good.

Newmar tested them a few years ago, they still use the tried and true doubles.
I see a lot of them on construction and oil tanker trailers around here but almost never on the tractor unit. Must be a reason.

I think I'm gonna go for it. I might even put them on the front if I had the room. But I'm kind of a nutter.

There has to be a Reason that there aren't many of these being used.

The Idea of a Super single would seem to make sense on an RV especially if it was a Run Flat design and You had a Good Quality TPMS!

I don't think They will fit on the Front unless You have a really Narrow Width Front axle with really Skookum Wheel Bearings!
