I usually will not be above 60 since that is the most comfortable for my setup. The Michigan Law was changed in Nov 2006 to be:
"(5) A person operating a passenger vehicle drawing another vehicle or trailer shall not exceed the posted speed limit.
(6) Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, a person operating a truck with a gross weight of 10,000 pounds or more, a truck-tractor, a truck-tractor with a semi-trailer or trailer, or a combination of these vehicles shall not exceed a speed of 55 miles per hour on highways, streets, or freeways and shall not exceed a speed of 35 miles per hour during the period when reduced loadings are being enforced in accordance with this chapter. However, a person operating a school bus, a truck, a truck-tractor, or a truck-tractor with a semi-trailer or trailer described in this subsection shall not exceed a speed of 60 miles per hour on a freeway if the maximum speed limit on that freeway is 70 miles per hour."
Meaning passenger vehicles use passenger vehicle speed limits towing or not.
