Tire upgrade on Jayfeather Sport 199

I have a 2009 Jayco Jay Feather Sport 199 (no longer made) with dual axles with Dexter Torflex axles. The angle on these is 32 deg down and have
185/80D13 Bias plys LRD. I'd like to change them to 205/75R14's since they are 5 years old with not too much use. We'll be going cross country soon and want to ensure that we don't have blowouts. There appears to be enough room between the tires themselves and the wheel wells above the tires, I don't want to buy them then find out there is a clearance problem. I don't do any boondocking, only on road. I've read that radials will give a better ride and run cooler. I'm looking at Kenda Karriers tires LRD . This model 199 was replaced with model 197 and probably shares the chassis and axles with other models so I'm looking for real world input.

there is less than 3/4 inch difference in the tires so clearance would never be an issue IMO and the wider 205 will definitely run better
