A friend of mine explained it this way...he was happy to tow at 70MPH and that his wife said that if he towed faster than 60mph she would not come along. He said, " I sure would miss that woman's cooking"! He tows at 60....

Here's a challenge. Contact your vehicle manufacturer ad ask about stopping distance from 50, 60 & 70 mph. Then ask about the distance if pulling your XXXX ton trailer?

If you say "Ya but I have brakes on the trailer" I would ask if you have the brakes set so that your stopping distance at 30 is the same with and without the trailer? I wouldn't test at any higher unless you have done a 30 mph emergency stop.

Would this be you?

Just a car.

60 mph = 450 to 500' with 5th wheel
How far does it take you to stop?
