Tire Suggestions

Going to nee some new tread soon.

Just wanted some advice/ recommendations on what tires for my C class 3100 Sunseeker.
Everything I find is a light truck tire. I know to look for E rated tires but what else do I need to look for?

1. What is the best most affordable tire

2. Where should I be shopping?

Crosswind tires

I'm going to take some flack, so here goes.
Last year I replaced the 6 tires on my 2006 Sunseeker 3100LTD.
The original Michelin tires were sun checked and cracked something fierce (I'm 2nd owner) and rode like they were greased or something. Coach was all over the road and wandered all to heck and gone. Went to my local tire shops and Camping World (all were north of $1500 for a set of 6) and then went with a local independent shop. They suggested the Crosswind brand tires for my RV. They have been installing them on local delivery trucks for several years with excellent results. I wondered and pondered and searched and found a little information on the company, nothing bad at that time. So I put my trust and my wallet in the care of the tire shop and have not looked back. They are Crosswind 225/75R16 E rated truck tires. With the tires at proper inflation they have performed well for the last year. No more wandering or other weird stuff. I've put just above 5,000 miles on them with no problems, even with the recent 2,100 mile trip in July to Branson, MO and back. I replaced the spare tire back the end of May just for piece of mind, since it was original to the coach so they all match and have similar date codes.
I looked at Tire Rack as a resource to get list prices for the tires and to be a bit armed for the phone search.
