Truck tires need to be replaced. Any recommendations? Should I consider any special features to consider when towing 22 foot trailer?

Trailer length has little to do with truck tires. Weight does, as well as whether you drive off road, in snow, mud etc. More information from you is needed.

Some F150's with the 4800 rawr/8200-7850 gvwr come with LT E tires....and some come with 18" or 20" or 17" P tires. So what are we looking for.
Makes a big difference.

If you've got the `18's then this would be my recommendation.

I had these exact tires on my `13 F150 2WD and I had 72K miles on them before I traded the truck off. Road manners were good and could easily handle the increased weight.

Michelin Defender. They are load range E and I have never had so much as a slow leak. On my 4th set.

For whatever it is worth, we put BFG All Terrains on our Tacoma -- we do a lot of off pavement stuff -- and they have been great -- no flats despite some very sharp volcanic rocks.

They make a lot of noise on concrete roads, though. Not so bad on asphalt.

No special considerations needed for load for a smallish trailer like that. Pick the ones you like in the price range you want.
D or E tires can handle more weight and thus can be made “stiffer” which helps handling especially with a load. And they last longer in general than lighter duty tires doing the same job.
Please don’t read the other thread about how E tires are bad for a half ton. Unless you’re looking for good entertainment.

Since OP won’t tell us what surfaces he drives on, how much weight he carries and pulls, his level of road noise tolerance or even specific truck until asked, I’ll pass on tire recommendations. This isn’t poker and you can reveal your cards.
