I was going to say the samething... Adding until your tires explode.. Might be 75, 85, or even just 45... One never knows, like a tootsie pop....

Like many here 62 is my sweet spot. Don't like changing blown tires on the side of the road!

On my first trip with our Roo 21SS I drove between 70 and 75, but the gas milage was very bad, around 7 mpg. I keeep it between 60 and 65 now and my mpg is around 10.5 mpg. My TV is a 2015 Ford F-150, 2.7 ltr Eco Boost. Trailer pulled great at 75, but the mpg sucked!!!

Speeding while pulling a trailer should be automatic double fine, people you've got in a lot of cases double your tow vehicles weight behind you. I don't care if you put your life in danger, I do care if you put my family's life in danger because you're in a big ass hurry.

65 Mph at around 1800 RPM on flat road. Hills I go up around 60 at higher RPM. Tires rated at 70 but why push it. Be safe and arrive a few minutes late.
