They have a 2183lb per tire capacity. Made in North America. My Marathons are only 2 years old with under 10K miles on them and they're already herniated. I don't want to buy Chinese crap and I don't want to buy new 16" wheels.
There is a lot of information to read on these "XL" rated tires. I have a set on my '72 Ambassador. I love them. One of the biggest factors in going with the Michelins was the fact that Rich Luhr has had great success with them on his '05 30' Safari bunkhouse. You can read about his experience with them here
. Keep in mind the GAWR of your trailer. The load that the tires actually carry. I would recommend you check your axle weights on a certified scale when fully loaded. Four of these tires will give you #8,732 of load capacity. If you were to subtract the tongue weight listed on AS spec sheet (#630) you should have about #7,970 on the axles. This can and will vary depending on loading, hitch rigging etc. That is why it is best to check axle loads on the scales.
In the end, you have to decide what to put on your trailer. I can tell you if I owned an '03 28' Classic, I wouldn't hesitate for a second to put on the Michelins.
