If you NEED 65 PSI for your load, you are speed limited to 65 MPH.

It is certainly true that all tires may not be carrying the same weight depending on whether your camper is riding level or not. If the camper is tilted "nose up" the aft set will have a heavier load than the front (and conversely).

Not sure it will be all that much, however. Much different scenario with a motorhome.
