Enjoy the drive it is the trip not the destination.. I see too many RVers that have to get there 10 min before they leave..

There is another thread on here about that. Look for "Speed Limit Towing".
I try to stay at or just under 65.
I just cringe when a 40ft toyhauler being pulled by a short 3/4t blows by us at 80mph and you notice a lot of tail wag.

I usually tow between 60-65 MPH, occasionally creeping up to 70MPH for a short time.

24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not.

Here in California the speed limit when towing anything is 55 MPH. I've found that usually when road conditions are good, most folks tow around 58 to 60 MPH and occasionally some chucklehead will be doing close to 80. Our rig seems to get the best efficiency at 60 MPH.
