My understanding is that the Ford Edge can be towed at a maximum speed of 65MPH. I am concerned that would be an issue when traveling across some of the western states. Any comments about going faster than 65 in your RV -- I am just looking at getting started and do not even have the RV or the Toad yet.

Ford does list the max towing speed as 65 MPH for the Edge.

As for me I'll stay under 65 mph, when you are retired getting there is half the fun and we're not in a hurry. Although, going downhill it might creep up on me, but I doubt it would be a problem for short distances. I love my Explorer.
