Toy hauler tires

We are new to RVing. Got a 17 ft th last year and this summer will be our first ever trip.
QUESTION: tire pressure on sidewall says max 60 psi. The trailer data plate says tire pressure 60 psi.and as i understand it the data plate is MIN Pressure . while the sidewall tire pressure is MAX pressure.
When i load in a 1000 # bike, i should increase tire pressure BUT I'm already at MAX.sidewall pressure.
So should i just leave it at max side wall pressure and forget the MIN data plate leaving it at MIN 60 PSI?
I hope this is understandable.

Thanks.

it has been my experience that the manufacturer's choose tires that barely meet spec. i would go with the info on the tire myself as that is the tire manufacturer's info. if it says 60 psi cold then 60 psi cold. now i always have run tires heavier than the toyhauler was equipped with and i choose tires with a speed rating of L or M when possible. 60 psi is probably an 8 ply tire. if fully loaded , at 60 psi cold pressure, if they looks like they have a fair amount of bulge then you need 10 ply imo. you will probably be fine as that 17footer prob isn't that heavy. i personally run 5 psi under max cold pressure as the heat from road time will increase pressure some. this should be accounted for by the tire manufacturer but considering the vast majority of tires come from china...... not sure if they do.

Start by using the PSI on the tire. When you get loaded like for the trips go and get your unit weighed. Remember everything in trailer and truck, just as on the trip. You can get weighed at a CTA scale:
1) weigh the whole unit
2) drop your trailer in the lot re-weigh your truck
3) now you will now your axle weights and the tongue weight of your unit.

The best weight is individual wheels on your trailer, but in place of that the CAT scale does provide some information. Don't forget loading items in the back of the trailer does lessen the tongue/pin weight.

Air the tires up to their max psi (according to tire manufacturer). I would also purchase a TPMS since you will be hauling a fair amount of weight on those tires. Almost every day while traveling in the summer we will see a TT or fiver pulled over with a blown tire.
