How long does PVC last?
It says on that site it will last for five years, mine is 8 years old and still ok.
My Lodestar is 1998, the tubes have never been repaired theres no leaks.
It has spent most of its time inflated and I have probably deflated it twice in the past year. It doesn't seem brittle. The things that have suffered is a couple of handles have gone sticky? The plastic seems to be breaking down.
Hopefully I'll get a proper rib next year...
