Watch your speeds!

Most likely your tires are only rated for 65 MPH.

Can you provide a pic? I've checked my tires and they don't list a mph rating.

From what I read, al new tires are now rated at 75mph because of some import requirement to avoid additional fees (paraphrasing).

Wondering if yours are newer then mine but being we have the same camper..

I believe you have to pass thru warp speed, then plaid, then you reach 75.

My truck pulled it find right around 75 and honestly didn't burn any extra fuel love have a 5vr so much better then the TT specially the space sleeping. Also not near as much movement with the 6 point leveling system unfortunately found one thing wrong which not a big deal always use are outdoor kitchen but the van over the stove wouldn't turn on and it worked on the walk thru any ideas why?

My fan over the kitchen stove did the same thing. Worked during PDI and my first trip a month ago. Was out last weekend and this weekend and it doesn't work anymore. The light comes on, so it's not a fuse.

Alex,just because they say you can,doesn't mean you should. The stopping distance will get you for sure. I can tell a big difference from this 5er to our smaller 5er. The stopping is much greater.I had to turn up the brake adjustment on the factory install.I still pull around 63 -68 and get my 12mpg.
