Technically those "Truck" speed limits don't apply to you, even a F250 pulling a large trailer is still a "light duty" truck. That said, I'm just across the boarder in north western Montana and will drive 55 all day if I want. People pass, I use pull outs. If I go much faster I'm going to end up on somebody else's back bumper. Then what? Have to pass them?
55 saves a ton of gas pulling a giant sail of a camper we have, it saved a ton of diesel when we used a Cummins. I'm also seldom in a hurry to get anywhere towing, it's called a vacation, and I want every minute to be relaxed.
