I've towed my 7m roughly that distance up to 5000ASL (far bigger effect than temp).

I followed Sunrider's advice (he's towed something like 30,000 miles). Keep the tubes inflated, if they go soft {visible indentation at speed}, pull over and add air. I only needed to add air once after descending a mountain pass. No flapping=no damage. You risk far more damage by removing your tubes and jamming them inside your vehicle than you do towing properly inflated.

An electric inflator is a good thing to have for the trip.
