I had heard lots of issues with Mission tires from friends as well as websites. I was very careful to always run 80 psi. I went on a 1600 mile trip by myself 13 month (about 5000) miles after I bought the trailer and when I woke up the next morning I had a flat. Fortuneately no blowout, but the side walls had been "lumpy" for a while. I replaced all 5 tires with BFG Commercial T/As and was told the "lumps" in the sidewall were indications that the belts had slipped and the tire failed from inside. It sure is nice to travel now without worrying about a blowout, or checking pressures and temperatures at every stop.
Craig, BFG Commercial T/A is what we put on our prior Montana. I went with that brand because of my experience with BFG tires on my truck. I was very happy with the new tires but we traded the rig after 9,000 on the tires so can't say how well they do in the long run. When we go with new tires some day the BFG's will definitely be seriously considered.

Can't say about the Missions, but after 4 blowouts on Chinese built tires, I decided not to wait for the fifth. Replaced the Missions with Goodyear G614s. I may not be safer, but I feel more confident.
