I know these facts, TT tires are rated at 65 mph, and many people tow doing 70 or more. why? I think they are nuts. So having said that, how fast do the rest of us tow? I am thinking of my first towing to yuma this year, I think I will tow at 62 mph. what say you?

I tow a 30ft TT and try and keep it below 65. I've been passed by other TT and 5th wheels that had to be going 80. Suicidal in my opinion.

63-65 except an infrequent pass at 68-70. However, with that said, if I see phorwheel in front of me, I instantly accelerate to 80mph.

Since my trailer tires are speed rated at 99MPH I tow the speed limit.
