How fast will you tow your TT?

Sorry, I see this question has been answered many times. I donít see a way to delete this thread.

No worries, Yea it's a subject that gets thrown around a bit, but most the topics in here have been around the loop several times..

At any rate, My tires are rated for 75 mph.. I typically run in the 63-67 MPH range.. I do hit 70 occasionally but I typically catch myself and slow down pretty quickly, so average 63-67 but have been as fast as 73 or so on accident.

Thanks. I have replaced my china bombs with commercial grade trailer tires, but Iím not in a hurry to get anywhere. I know there are some that say there are nothing wrong with the china tires, but I experienced a dramatic difference in trailer handling after replacing them. Mine had only 2k miles on them when I replaced them. I hated the way they felt in tow.

I replaced my China bomb tires with Goodyear Endurance tires immediately after buying my trailer. I consider it the smart and safe thing to do. Even though they are rated up to 87 mph, I normally tow at 65 mph on the freeways.

My first experience with China bomb tires was when I towed a utility trailer from Arizona to Alaska. The right tire blew up after about 3500 miles. New trailer and the tires were properly inflated and the trailer was well under gross weight. I will never trust China bomb tires again.

Bought my camper in the fall, 90 mile trip home and one 25 mile round trip camping outing before I winterized it. I will be replacing mine with GY Endurance before my next trip.

As for speed, I towed it home hitting 70 because it was empty and again on my one trip when it was loaded. I wanted to see what the new to me Diesel would do it with going up and down hills. I'm usually a 67-70 MPH floater but with the new truck, once I set the cruise control, she ran at -/+1 mph from whatever I set it at the entire trip.

65 or so is perfect for me, I don't have to worry about catching up to the cars ahead of me and therefore eliminate a lot of lane changes. Occasionally I do unintentionally creep up a few mph.

Goodyear Endurance tires - rated for 87 mph - but, 65 is my norm. Occasionally I'll do 70 if passing someone, but otherwise as NOGREY said...I'm not in a hurry to get anywhere.

First guy to cry about "China Bomb" tires after he has a blowout and either wrecks his RV.

I still have the china bombs, reckon I have about 1000 miles on em or so now..I plan to swap out at the end of this season. Trailer seems to tow good with em, but I'm still swapping them.
