It depends on road condition, weather, and traffic, but generally 70, with or without the toad, on interstates and as close to the limit, or a bit over, on secondary roads. Curves and hills are also a speed "modifier". I've done that since we got our first TC in the later "70's and no problems/accidents related to driving so far.

The last TC we had for 23 years was a Caribou and the MH we've had the last 4 years is a '94 26' Flair, which is older than old according to twinboat.:-)) It has made 3 coast to coast trips so far, and may make another this summer, depending on how confident I am at that time in the '94 30' Dynasty we bought a few months ago.

Governor kicks in around 72-75, so I usually don't go any faster than 70 just to have that little bit of kick if I need it

62 on the interstate. Much slower in the mountains. Could not care less if I am an obstruction. Drive what is safe and comfortable for you and the terrain you are on

Any faster than that, with driving a behemoth, requires engineering, that a monster vehicle is incapable of possessing, regardless of the driver's skills.
