If you can find the specs on your tire pressure gauges, check them and you will find the accuracy specs can vary significantly. On top of that, drop a gauge just once and its a whole new ballgame. An accuracy of +/-10% is not uncommon with inexpensive gauges. Using that, 65 psi could be anywhere from 58.5 PSI to 71.5 PSI. The only way to be able trust a gauge, is to buy a quality one, test it periodically against a known accurate one and take very good care of it.

Trailer tires are rated at 65psi in most cases. Speed should not exceed 65mph especially in hot weather and on rough highways. Good luck and happy trails.
