X2!

We leave plenty of time and take it easy on ourselves and the vehicles.

55-60 mph for us. I don't want to push our luck by going any faster. Also after reading all the negative comments about the Rainer tires here on the forum, I really really don't want to push our luck.

I usually tow between 65-67mph, with an occasional creep up to 70. Depends on the hills in our area, don't stay at 70 but a couple of minuets.

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

We have places in Texas where the speed limit is 85... which is about 20 mph faster than I'm willing to go. So I get passed a lot... which doesn't bother me in the least. Some people seem to think I'm #2. Remember... #1 is the index finger...

Yes. And I agree it runs better at higher speeds. However the trailer tires are rated what they are and I don't feel like pushing it. As stated in my original post, I'm just in no hurry. Locking out 6th and running a little slower gives me about the same ram as the higher speed in 6th and I've found I get slightly better fuel economy too likely due to wind resistance being less at the lower speed.

Right around 60.. Not worth risking hurting myself or someone else.

The same here Grumpy. 60-62 is perfect for me and my G614's roll just fine also. My fuel economy is 12 +/- .5 mpg virtually anywhere I go. I can always tell when I get some bio however since my mpg's drop to 11'ish.

My daughter says she wants to get a vanity tag for my 5'er - GOROUND or similar, but I'm not the one that just got a speeding ticket.

X2 on the lack of "need for speed".

To me, camping is not about speed, but more of enjoying the scenery. Some of the greatest scenery is on the road to the campground!
