For stated reasons above, I run at 60 mph. Ultimately I let the conditions dictate if a slower speed is required.

Happy travels

Similar to what he said...but 62mph on 4-lanes.

Plus, in dense traffic, as in a city, I'll go faster than 62mph on the 4-lane to keep pace with traffic; even if that is slightly above the speed limit.

60 MPH. If I am excited about getting to my destination, I just leave a little earlier. I have passed and also have been passed by other RV'ers at 60.

We were on I-65 a couple of weeks ago [not towing] doing 75mph and got passed by 4 or 5 guys hauling campers from northern Indiana and 1 was a Jayco. Couldn't believe it. We usually run around 65mph towing unless I'm going down hill and not paying attention and I've hit 72 or 73. Oops. Hard to keep the 6.7 PSD down.

I was towing on I95 in Maine in the fall, doing my usual 60-62 mph, and some guy towing a TT flew by; had to be pushing well over 80 mph. He must have been in a rush to get somewhere, because I sure hope he didn't think he was impressing anyone. Would hate to see what would happen if someone cut him off, which does happen quite a bit out there.

Try to say between 60 and 65 mph. On interstate maybe a little faster if its not 110 degrees out!

I like to cruise at 63-65. I don't like to go over the tire rating. Makes me feel safer as well, don't feel anxious towing at this speed

What ever the posted limit is. In Texas its 85 MPH on I10 west...
I changed from 15 inch 2500 # per tire to 16 inch 3500# rated and as per manufacture I can run 70 PSI Vs 80 pounds and have no problems. I've towed for years with cruise set on 75-85 no problems.
