need travel trl tire suggestions

If this is a question that has been addressed on the site before plz dont kill me. I did a quick search and didnt see anything so here go's
I need some recomendations for tires for my 31' featherlite camper trl. Dont know the weight off hand. So do I reeley need to go with a trl tire or can I go with a regular lt type tire?
Also plz keep in mind that I would rather do a bit or alot of over kill rather than be worried the whole time Im driving down the road.
I do alot of backwoods camping so a tire that can take a beating would be great but also one that has no issues runnin down the hwy at 70-75 mph on a hot August day in Airizona.
Thanks ahead of time. J

ST trailer tires are good for 60-65MPH. That's it.
Get a LT tire.
There should be a sticker on the left front stating what tire size/weight rating/etc. that it should have. But you may just wanna go with a load range E or D, depending on weight. If it recommends Ds, I'd go for Es.
