Rotate Tires?

I rotate my tires on my pickup and on the DW's car. Should I be rotating tires on my class c?

My guess is no, not unless you are putting real high mileage on your RV or the front tires show signs of wear - uneven wear or cupping. RV tires tend to "age out" not wear out.

Agree. Unless wear pattern indicates a need no rotation. And if you are getting a wear pattern problem need to find what is causing it and not just rotate other tires to the problem area.

I always have rotated my tires including the spare. And I have always crossed or reversed them on my vehicles and in 40 years never experienced any bad belts. I use the 5 tire rotation because by the time the tires are worned the spare would be outdated. Later with 4 new tires I will do the 4 tire rotation. And I will never change all 4 tires in one time due to mostly uneven wear.

It is one thing to rotate tires on vehicles, but a whole different animal on the bigger MH's. On ours, the inside rear dual is a different style wheel. So if we want, need to rotate the tires, they all have to be broken off the wheels and reinstalled for the new location.
If there is not unusal wear on the tires, I do not intend to rotate them. There might be a reason for high mileage MH's but for most of us I would say NO need.

Are you speaking of motor homes or cars / light trucks? My comment was for motor homes. Cars / light trucks, I rotate.
