Tire Replacement?

Hi,
I own a 1991 Ford F-150 4X4 extended cab pick-up with the 5.0L
motor.I tow a large 29FT travel Trailer in the summer weekends.
I am looking to replace the current tires on the truck.They are
Goodyear Workhorse tires LT235/75R15.I inflate them to 50 PSI while towing,the LT tires seem to have Stiffer sidewalls,etc wich is good in helping prevent trailer sway,etc.
Iam currently looking at "Trivant" Brand tires, LT 235/75R15 "Trail AP tires.Is anyone familar with these or any Trivant Brand tire?
Also any input on selecting a good towing tire????
Thanks, Charlie

My personal feeling is if you buy a good brand EXTRA LOAD tire you should be fine,I worked at a tire dealer for some time,and the biggest mistake was not matching tires for the intended use.Some people think cheap tires are the answer,when in fact in the long haul(sorry for the pun)you spend more by replacing them more often.Im not familiar with that brand but make sure they are extra load if you buy them.
