I have new tires on truck and RV, good quality. I trust the tires so I usually run about 5 mph under posted speeds on most hiways, 75/80 speed limit roads I am usually at 68/70. With older tires, I ran alot slower. Very heavy traffic I might go a little faster so I'm not the *old fart* blocking the road. When it gets like that, I find alternative hiways, the roads less traveled usually offer better scenery/less jerks giving me a hard/obscene time. IMHO, it depends on your comfort zone, truck/camper/tire/road/wind conditions. With or without a trailer, It never bothers me if I'm slowed down by another RV'r in front of me doing his/her own comfort zone speed.
A biggie when traveling as far/fast as your planning, how old are the RV tires? They can look great but be old, old tires don't like speed/distance. They tend to blow and do an incredible amount of damage to campers.
Edit: My RV tires are LT, the RV sticker calls for them. ST tires... not many (if any) I would trust over 55.
