No matter what people drive, some go faster, some go slower. Towing is towing so if there is a limit, there you go. I try to keep it not more than 65, generally 60-62 because of gas and tires. Everyone says the max for trailer tires is 65 so why go faster.

Right on timetogo. I would sooner have the speeder or fast drivers ahead of me then behind me anyway. That way I can see them before they have an problem rather then involving me.

You're more tolerant than I am, I guess. I usually hope I DO see them on their side or in a ditch somewhere down the road.

I too tend to keep my speed close to 60...sometimes a couple of mph higher, sometimes a couple of mph slower...mostly depends upon traffic, weather, and terrain.

Here in California, I'm required by law to observe the 55mph laws....however, I still travel at my regular speed and I've never had a LEO look twice at me. In the states where speed limits are 70 to 80 with no restrictions for trucks or towing, I still travel at my regular speed.

I just disregard those idiots that run down the highway in their rv's that are clearly ignoring the laws and the safety of others. I'm much better off with them in front of me anyway.

You call people going over the speed limit idiots and at the same time you say the 55 limit where you live doesnt apply to you. What makes it ok for you and not them. Must be nice up on that throne.

Unless folks towing trailers have upgraded to better than ST tires, 65 is the maximum speed rating for trailer tires. IMO, the reason we read so many gripes about trailer tires failing.
I agree with lower speed limits for towing. A multiple-unit rig is harder to control at speed than a single vehicle, especially if a quick maneuver is required to avoid road hazards, blowout, cross-wind, etc.
