I cruise about 60MPH, and have an alarm set at 65MPH on the Aladdin system. Our toad is only rated for 65MPH max, so we don't have the luxury of going faster than that.

I've had the 'pleasure' of being in the driver's seat when a front tire blew out in our previous rig. I was driving 70MPH on Interstate 95 and it was one of the scariest highway moments in my life. 60 is fast enough.

Here's an excellent MPG guide to slowing down etc.


This is the link to a previous discussion. Some of the document links are broken but the one above is now on this site. Sort of related to this how fast topic.


Don't know about others but my speed rating on the tires is 76 mph. To read higher speeds than that being maintained...not good. Even close to that speed is not good.

Just finished driving 1800 miles. Average was 7.6 mpg. Coach is 39000 plus pulling 13000 stacker. Crossed 7000 ft pass. Drove into a slight breeze. Drove about 62 except while climbing, down to 45
