And, I think your idea and intent is great. The implication in your initial post, was that others would provide anechdotal or incorrect information. IMO, you did that from the start, albeit with good intentions. Yes, there are many bits of information posted on the Internet (some even on state run pages), but that doesn't make them facts, or make them stop from misleading people. I just would have left the states I was not 100% on blank, instead of picking something.
In Colorado, the maximum speed that can be posted is 75 MPH. There is no travel trailer speed limit, there is only 'the' speed limit. As with many other places, there are additional rules to the effect of driving at speed safe for the conditions, but that isn't really the subject here.
