Very interesting information. Thank you. I live as far south in Texas that you can get and ever since the State of Texas has removed the restriction and signs with the day/night difference I have not seen any postings for these laws any where. I have traveled South to North, to the West and East. Nada, Zip. Not saying it isn't true, just that I think there would be cause to fight a ticket in court. You have to have an endorsement to ride a motorcycle and maybe you would learn that in Motorcycle Safety Class if there is special speed limits for motorcycles, but there is no endorsement needed for hauling a trailer. You can just drive it right off the dealers lot or away from a former owner without ever knowing this.
With that said, we do 60/65 unless the posted speed limit is less. On our last trip we were in heavy winds and we only did 50/55 to be safe and had road warriors flying by us at 80 or more. I asked my husband why there were going so much faster than us and he stated it is not worth the wear and tear on the truck, plus he did not want a chance to have a trailer flip on him.
