I've got a Civic that we flat tow. Like others, I cruise 60-65, On occasions, it'll go to 70 and rarely 75.

Regarding my Civic (it also has a 65 mph limit when towed), the only thing I can think of is how the fluid in the tranny is circulated. We always start the Civic and run through the pre-tow sequence whenever we stop. This keeps the tranny fluid circulated

There are lots of people who will drive as fast as they can, without any regard for the speed limit or the limitations of their vehicles. I think you call it the Entitlement Generation, though such an attitude seems to span a lot of age groups. I just try to stay out of their way and let the chips fall where they may.

I strictly limit any tow speed over 65. My tires are only rated for 65. We always to 60 to 65 unless speed limit is less. They can go around I'm going camping. LOL
Happy Camping be safe.

My tires are rated at 100 MPH, but I don't think I will try it!

Question on HWY Speed (motorhomes)

Within 5 MPH of the speed limit. Sometimes 5 over sometime 5 under but never over 75 MPH.

Travel lots of 2 lane roads. -- maybe 60 MPH on those. 5 over.

Tow speed

I travel between 60 and 63 towing my CRV. Have had to do 70 plus a couple times to pass a slow truck on the interstate. Have started sticking to back roads, since the interstates are in such poor condition 55 is even unsafe.

55 in a Berkshire towing a CRV on a dolly. 11 mpg. Safer, easier on my equipment. So I get there a half-hour later - no big deal.
