typically on the left front there is a tag with a whole bunch of info - GVWR which it the Gross Vehicle Weight, GAWR which is the Axle weight for each axle, tire size and type, and some give Cargo Capacity.

G614 is a good tire, and 1 of only 3 or so that are Load Range G - 14 ply for trailers. The manufacturers like to install E rated ST tires, which is why they protect the wheel wells

Only way to get good tires or at least better tires is to have 16" rims. Finding 16" rims on travel trailers is not real easy. Outdoor RV and Northwood offer 16" wheels on some of their models. Other than that you'd have to search all the different brands.
With 16" rims you can get a few good tires like Michelin XPS Ribs, or Bridgestone Duravis R250. You have to be careful going to an LT tire. While the tire is better it's also not rated as high for load capacity. So you may have to go up in size to get the needed load capacity.
