I like using the Garmen Diezel. Will give you all the information you are asking for. The screen is easy to read and see.

I use Waze whether I'm pulling the TT or not.

I'm not sure what you mean by "safest route for the size...". You're not pulling a 65-foot long, 20-foot wide, 20-foot tall ranch home on wheels. It's just a trailer, there's thousands of them on the road, most bigger than yours. If you see trucks on the road, you're fine.

No matter the device they will give you bad directions at some point so knowing the route you want to travel before you leave is most important. Beyond that, Google Maps and WAZE will give you the most currect road conditions and travel directions. They do not provide height and weight detours. I tried a trucker GPS but it would also keep us off roads where no trucks were allowed but would have been fine (and allowed) for RV's.

I use Campendium and RVParkReviews to find places to go, and Travel planner for route planning.

I also use FlattestRoute to check grades on different routes if I'm going through mountains, or think there might be issues.

If I'm going off of a major highway I'll check the AllStays app or run the route through the CoPilot app for low bridge clearances.
