Might be a bit wide for the 6 inch rim and may hang out the guard a bit as well.

The 265/75R16 is too wide for the 6 inch rims on the RV. To fit those tyres you'll need the 7 inch wide rims of a GXL spec, etc. You will also need some flares as the wider tyres/wheels will stick out the side.

Another option is to consider a narrower tyre (that will fit on the 6" rim), that has a higher aspect ratio to gain the increase in rolling diameter.

You'll have to upgrade to the 7 inch rims to fit 265 x 75 x 16.

90 series GXL steel rims are as rare as hens teeth, 16 x 7 inch aftermarket rims are not a run of the mill size so are a lot more expensive than the 15 x 7 and maybe even the 16 x 8 (not sure on that one).

All up its an expensive excercise moving to the larger tyres.
