Where in CA is that? Where I drive in SoCal, people take their sweet time.

I drive 67 mph I don't catch a lot of cars or truck I have to pass other than ABF trucks and most of the ones that pass me don't blow my doors off

Raving is a hobby hobbies cost money

I set the cruise control at 60 and just let her roll. I don't care if the speed limit is 65 or 75. Doesn't matter to me.

If their car will go that fast why can't the RV!!
I agree. I have a commercial license and drove a truck prior to driving a class A, and I can tell you the people driving around you treat you with just as little respect, but my gasser generally has less braking and maneuverability than the big rig I drive. It's best to slow down and drive defensively, and remember you're in a thinly decorated truck chassis with a lot of projectiles waiting to exercise their potential energy.

Count me in at 60, as well. It is all about how fast you can stop, not how fast you can go.

For some interesting discussion on the topic of speed, check out the thread "Fast DP!" on this forum.

I set the cruise control at 64 in a 70 or 61 in a 65. I like to enjoy the journey, slow and steady!
