    My Bushtec Turbo 2+ manual says to use 45 psi regardless of load. Does bounce a bit, but I'll tune the pressure on my next trip.

    Doesn't bushtec have the tires that look like they are off a bike? Where most other trailers use tires that are like small car tires. If so then the pressure would be different in those because they need to stay rounded at the contact patch. Just my thought

    You are correct, Gorilla. The tires are also used on dirt bikes and, of all things, some baby carriages. They have an aggressive off-road style tread, so will certainly require different pressures than car-style tires. Good catch…I should have thought if that🥴.
