        I'd say it's a few thousand miles past being shot.

        Have you balance it? Have you aligned your tires? Is the suspension set up correctly? Has the suspension been serviced, ever?
        How do you determine what tire pressure to run? All these things matter for optimum tire wear, much like a car does.

        Why's it scalloped/cupped more on one side? More then likely a.) Tires can wear a little more on the inside do to the crowning in the roads, b.) you tend to favor left turns a little harder
        and causes a little more wear on left side?

        If you only had like 2k miles on it and it was scalloped or cupping then suspension would be suspect.

        The tire is just well past the end of it's life, replace it.

              I'm not seeing anything particularly alarming from what I can see from the photo. You have lots of good suggestions from the previous posts.

              Noting your trailer hitch - it could also be that your trailer isn't tracking absolutely true.
