    hey everyone, Fred here, just bought a 1999 viking tent trailer in good shape but I have a few things to look after on her
    How difficult is it to change a tire stud?

    I’ll take possession tonight and be able to look into what else I have to do on her

    Welcome from the West Virginia mountains..
    Studs are easy to change. Drive the old one out. I use nuts to pull the new stud through the drum while tapping on it with a hammer. (the brake drum has to be off)

    Welcome from N/W Fl Panhandle. Congrats on the NTU PUP.
    The awning poles are not that hard to make out of conduit I have made several in my days.
    As stated the studs are easy to change, remove the brake drum and drive old one out then gently hammer the new one in,

    Does your camper use wheel bolts or lug nuts?
    I have a '98 Viking that originally used bolts.

    How bad are the tire studs? Mine were rusted pretty good. Some wd 40 and a wire brush fixed them up like new.

    they aren't as bad as the po made it out to be, no stud is missing, just have to grease the bearings and I'm good to go, just have the heater to check, but it's too hot to try it at the moment
