200 lbs is considered heavy in cycing terms, let alone 300lbs. You may just have to get a tough wheelset built up. If your LBS can't do it try another.

Also - I had a similar problem once, the rear wheels kept breaking spokes, even though I wasn't doing anything rough. Turns out the back derailleur was bent inwards, and would smash into spokes when I was on the lowest gear of my cassette. Make sure it's not that before you sink money into better wheels that you'll just break again.
