I use common sense based on use & stay close to the 'window' of 3-3.5K mi. on our gas engines and 4.5-5.5k on the diesel.

Why not change it at ~3000 miles while on the road? 15 min at a quickie lube, while your tailer is back at the campground. If this is hopelessly inconvenient then I would not worry about it. A few extra miles on an oil change when on a trip will not matter.

I do take a few minutes to pre-flight my tow vehicle before taking a trip though - check all fluids, check cold tire pressures (including the trailer tires), tighten lug nuts, and so on. Might be a good time to change the air filter too.

Thanks to all of you for your input. I'm off to the oil change shop. Since I asked the question I must be concerned and I don't want to have that on my mind while out enjoying myself. Like my dad says, the time to reef the sail is when you think about it.

BTW My tow vehicle is a 2003 Ford Ranger XLT 4L 4x4

Yep, I'd change the oil too. Mobil 1 is great, it's cheap insurance and piece of mind.
