Tire Pressure 67' 17ft Caravel

What is the correct tire pressure for I believe they are 205/75/15 trailer load tires for a 17'ft 1967 Caravel. I think they are 6ply Load C tires

A 205 75 15 range C is limited to a max load of 1820 lbs per tire at 50 lbs.
Weigh your trailer and check that weight against the inflation chart.

You may want to move up to a load range D if your are a single axle and tend to travel at higher speeds.

I believe that trailer has a dry weight of roughly 2200 lbs.

If you figure your loaded weight is 2700 lbs. that would be 30 to 35 lbs.

Get in touch with Rob from the VAP. I purchased my 5 pole holder from him and have been EXTREMELY satisfied.
