So I'm guessing that none of the lead footers pulling TT's are posting on these forums?

60 here. There is probably a dark side to me that enjoys making people upset that are in too much of a hurry to deal with slow drivers...

I also find 65mph with the cruise on is real comfy!

I drive between 55 and 60 mph and I find I am less stressed, get better mph, have less trailer sway and am quite happy doing 300 to 350 miles a day. I too am on vacation and don't see the need to rush.

Yeah, that's what I was wondering because I see plenty of them. Once clocked a Duramax pulling a huge 5th wheel with a power boat behind that at 85 mph on the freeway on the weekend!! Just last week clocked 2 maroons (as bugs bunny used to say) doing 75mph pulling approximately 30ft travel trailers. It amazes me that there isn't more carnage than there is.

I usually tow between 65-70. So a lil faster than most. Truck is comfortable at about 67 MPH.

I pull my fifth wheel between 60 to 62. Sweet spot for my Tundra. I never pull in cruise however so it varies slightly.

Between 60 and 62 which is sweet spot for my truck.See no need to pull 40 feet of fifth wheel any faster.
