good towing speeds

Hi all, new jayco owner.
Have a 264bh, last time I towed was a small pop up back when max speed limit was 55.
Now it's much higher, here in Pa. it's up to 70 mph on some interstates. Was wondering a good speed to use climbing hills in northern Pa?
I know my truck can tow a lot more than the 6000 lb gvw, but was never towed a brick before.
Thx in advance.

I keep mine at 60. I had a tire explode once and have no desire to repeat the experience.

Depends on your TV and the TT, and the rating of the tires on the TT. Different TT tires have different load and speed ratings, so you need to know what's on the TT.

63 keeps Cummins at 1800 rpm a sweet spot!

68. Keeps it in 6th for me and RPM low. Get passed a lot, but not so slow I get in the way. This is with Good Year Endurance.

Previous combos were different. Depends a lot on the cobo as someone else stated.

Between 60-65mph works best for us.

With the Chev it's 75 or the speed limit, whichever is less. On occasion it hits 80 on a downgrade or if I'm passing. At least I no longer get run over the highway. The Ford seemed to struggle to maintain 65 with the same trailer.

Edit: thought I should mention I run S637's that are rated to 75. If I had the OE tires it would be 0mph. Not in a hurry really but I'd rather be at a camp location than driving on the highway.

Under 65 with the Rainiers. Will change to Endurance next season and I will stay under 70 to 75 then.

Between 62 and 65 for us. We're never in that big of a hurry .
