I think that if you live in hotter climates like the desert, the tires will age out faster with the heat than in colder climates where they are not exposed to the sun as much.
You just have to weigh the odds and do what is right for you.

Loss of life with a blow out is probably a lot less then having one in a accident.
And a accident usually causes a lot more damage to repair.

Do you have any document on how many deaths are caused with a RV tire blow out vs accidents in a RV?
Is RV tire blow outs loss of life more or less then people killed by lighting a year?

If you are afraid of having a loss of life with a blow out. Maybe having a RV is not for you. As blow outs have happen in tires less then a year old.
Not common but they do happen.

Don't forget to watch Michelin's video Critical Factor on what to do when one happens. It does work and may save your loss of life.
Or mine if you can't keep control in the same lane with a blow out.
