The axle is probably rated for twice the weight capacity of one of those wierd-size tires that came on it. 14.5" diameter? Anyway, if you can find one of the tires, the weight capacity is probably on the sidewall.
Per the Greenball tires website = Greenball: Tires - MOBILE HOME TIRES - TUBELESS
those tires are rated 2540, 2790, or 3070 pounds, depending on the load range E, F, or G.
So the axles for those tires are probably rated for 5,000, 5,500 and 6,000 pounds.
IOW, if you assume a max GVWR of 5,000 pounds for your single-axle trailer, then you 'll probably be okay.
The next problem is shortening the axles. You probably don't want a 12-foot wide trailer, but most mobil homes or modules are 12' or 14' wide.
