My 5th wheel that I justed traded for my Flagstaff, weighs 9000k also. Upgrading from D's to E's, and putting the best tire on it (rated at 80psi), is all the equipment you need to drive confidently.
I have driven mine to Canada and back down to Mexico, twice. I have driven from the east coast to the west coast. So I have driven a lot of roads, under a lot of conditions. I never had a single problem with my tires. Not even a flat. So I know the equipment is a good match. But it is only the beginning. The rest is your behavior and discipline in maintaining your tires. Good luck!
