Based on what I have found, it looks like the Kenda 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" White Wheel # AM30620 is a direct replacement for your 1999 Flagstaff 208. It has a 4 on 4 bolt pattern and a maximum load of 990 lbs at 90 psi. If you need a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern you can use the # AM30660 instead.

If you have the clearance I would recommend switching to radial tires like the # AM35351DX (4 on 4) or # AM31199DX (5 on 4-1/2). These have automotive grade tread and will hold up better when compared to bias ply tires. They also have a speed rating of M for 81 mph compared to 65 mph for the others. Typically you want 2" of clearance on the inside of the tire and 3" on the top. You will lose about 1/2" on the inside and the top with this larger tire so you will want to measure to be sure.
