    I recently purchased a trailer in excellent condition

    According to the seller, the unit has done less than 4000km, the tyres show no wear but are 10 years old

    Do I need to buy new tyres?

    Thank you

    Thank you Hennie

    Just seems strange that car tyres are not changed every 5 years

    Tyre manufacturers will only give warrantee  for tyres up to 5 years old. Most tyre failures on a caravans will fail on the road due to overaged carcasses.From the outside and tread pattern it would still look reasonable but the inside layers of cord material would dry up and detoriate in time.
