Minimum wire guage

I am running a service to my small workshop. I plan on one 30 amp circuit, RV hookup outside the workshop, and 2 20 amp circuits inside. question is, what max load breaker should I use for the small panel I will be putting in the work shop and what size wire should I use to run from the main house panel to the small breaker box I will be installing in the work shop? run is approximately 75 feet from the house to the workshop.

Depends on the loads in the work shop and how heavy the RV receptacle will be loaded but it sounds like 60 amps using #6 THWN should be enough.

Thanks! Load on the RV receptacle will be light for the most part as it will be hooked up during winter just to keep the fridge running.
