We have BFG's on our 21ft van that weighs in at about the same as yours and we run at 40psi on the highways and let them down to about 33psi on long areas of rocky outback roads, such as around Birdsville. Shorter sections we just leave them at 40psi.

I think it depends on the tyre......
The speed of travel,
And the road conditions, and this is up to the discretion of the Owner....

Bushtracker cannot tell you, as all of these things are variables as well as the load... On severe corrugation, I have let the tyre pressure down on my 285/75 R-16 tyres with my own 21' van fully loaded up similar to yours, all the way down to 25 lbs hot... Rode nice and soft and I never lost a tyre. But again, this is up to the Owners. And road rules and regulations would make this kind of pressure illegal... I have done it on bad back tracks.

Kind Regards, Bushtracker
