[QUOTE=Filthy Beast;1216013]Sorry this is "off topic".
Around here there are few secondary roads to drive on. I drive 65 because that is what I want to drive, I am not changing my speed because it bothers others who want to drive faster. I believe there is a minimum speed on the freeways, it used to be 45 mph but I have also seen ones at 55 mph. When they change that to 65 then I will consider getting out or others way.[/QUOT

since we arte waiting for the OP to post his results it's ok to be off topic . like driving in the left lane because the right lane is bumpier and doing 55 . if people would just drive RIGHT there would be a lot less accidents on the road. i mean if you go over 65 you're going die and if you do under 55 you're going die so what's it matter . the biggest problem is the I don't care about others . that's the new American mentality screw the rules screw everybody who gets in my way screw anybody who makes me change lanes . you can see by some of the posts here we have quite a few members like that . forget giving advice . forget posting opinions because what ever you post is wrong . like i mean i will consider changing lanes when and if i feel like it . or maybe when the cop gives them a ticket for driving in the left lane going 55 mph . which is against the law even if the minimum is 40 mph . They even have second hand accounts of cops saying anybody who tows faster then 60mpg is causing all the accidents since they know how fast someone was going after the fact . what a bunch of BS . i've read more made up stuff here then when i listen to Hillary talk

I think lowering your hitch should do the trick for you. I have my B&W Companion set at its lowest setting to have my XLR 395 riding level behind my '15 F350 SRW. Lowest setting still leaves plenty of bed rail clearance. My trailer pulled straight as an arrow, no sway at all 1500 mi through the mountains to Myrtle Beach last summer. Make sure your rear tires are set at max pressure too, I keep mine at 80 psi for towing.

I know, but I think the angle of the picture exaggerates the size of the toyhauler a little bit. It is the best pulling trailer I've had so far though.

To the poster so proud of driving 55 max~~

Stay out of western PA. I have a friend that is a state trooper that writes a ton of tickets about speed and over the limit is the least of them.

Driving in the passing lane while not passing
Driving under minimum speed
Most of all ~~ impeding the flow of traffic. If doing 55 or 60 and traffic flow is 65 - 70 and most everyone is passing him or traffic is backing up he is in violation of the law and will be ticketed. He loves these in court as he always wins. There are very few reasons permitted and lack of power is not one of them.

My friend just returned my call ~~ he said he has some known counterparts. One in WV and another in NY. They feel those going too slow are more dangerous than one 5 - 7 mph over the limit.

To the guy earlier in this thread talking about towing too fast and burning too much fuel.


1-nobody buys a 2500 or 3500 and worries about mpg's while towing.
2-nobody buys a big azz RV to go behind the previously stated 2500 or 3500 and worries about mpg's while towing.
3-If you are worried about mpg's while towing, GO BUY A PRIUS AND A TENT!!!


Now back to our regularly scheduled programming!!!
