I don't know... I think I would prefer the interstate or any 4-lane divided highway. If they are planning their route on 2-lane rural roads, they will wind up with a queue of angry people waiting to pass. There is not a minimum speed limit on the interstate. 50mph should be fine. My $0.02

There usually is a minimum speed limit posted on major highways. I have seem 40 mph minimum. Always seems to me that it is a very slow minimum for a highway that has at least 60mph max. speed posted.

I stand corrected. And I work for the DOT For some reason I was thinking there wasn't one in order to accommodate military vehicles and farm vehicles. Texas is one of several states that don't post a minimum on the interstate, however.

I'm heading out on a cross country trip (mostly interstate) here soon and I plan to keep it between 50 to 55 mph at all times.

The OP's friend will be fine on a highway at 50mph if that is what they choose to do.

Thanks for all the thoughtful replies.

I think the dealer was just saying something he had heard said before,
Like the car dealer that told me it didn't matter what viscosity of oil I used as long as it was made by Castrol

I think we're going with these folks to pickup the trailer and camping with them on their first trip, they've never towed anything before and are a little nervous.
