rv tires

question:
travel trailer tires bias vs radial?
Reason I'm asking is I'm tired of replacing the radials that came on the trailer. I have to replace them every 2 years regardless of the milage due to dry rot. it doesn't matter if I cover them or leave them, they rot just sitting there. My old trailer had bias plys and they lasted for years with out roting or checking.

I currently have the goodyear marathon radials and was thinking about switching to carlise bias plys.

thoughts? suggestions?

Ok, I know the difference between the two. With rv's & travel trailers most people seem to switch TO radials for a "softer" ride; and everyone complains about the dry rot problem. SO, anybody switch from radials to bias plys? anybody see a problem going that route? their also much cheaper than radials. $$$
