We'll be travelling full time next year and loading up a bit more than usual.
Maxxis is another great option for you.
You don't give your complete tire size/rating, but Maxxis UE168 has 3 sizes in 15", all D rated, 13/32" tread depth (more than most GY, BFG, etc. LT), & speed rated R or Q. You can get them through Tire Rack, Discount Tire/America's Tire, & other shops.
They ride great, pretty good in snow & dirt/sand for an all season, & have great sidewall stiffness to resist sidewinds & 18-wheeler/bus wakes with a high profile vehicle.
I've been using them on our `88 VW Westfalia since 2015 - with better load capacity, speed rating, traction, & sidewall resistance than the factory spec tires we had when new up to the late 1990s. And they're far superior
to the last set of OEM Michelin specifically made for the narrow track + high profile VW Vanagons - 2 of which bubbled, 1 tread partial separation & 1 blow-out tread separation after just 3000 miles in cool morning heat. Those Michi's were junk!
I also run the Maxxis M8008 (M8008+) ST trailer tires on our 21'-6" L vintage 1960 Avion T20 since 2012 - 2nd set this year after a 3+ year delay of no travel with it. So Maxxis makes good tires.
PS - our Westy van runs their LT 205/70R14Q C on the factory 14x6 Alloy wheels.
