Somewhere on here there was just a thread about that. Started off with the name "Mission Tires" I think.
There's a lot of debate about that, especially among owners of heavier trailers. Our friend eman (everymilesamemory.com) has some good justification for bias ply tires in a high mileage, rough terrain, heavier trailer environment.
Lots of folks with coaches like yours and mine (5,500# GWVR or less) have excellent experiences with radial tires, particularly when not in a high mileage situation.
Since radials are more the standard these day than bias ply tires, it may or may not be more expensive to switch to bias ply. I will be looking into that over the winter as I really need to replace at least 3 of my tires.
