    The 5.7L Tundra pulls my 30 footer fine on the interstate when flat. If I am not paying attention it can creep up to 75-80mph once up to speed. It is the steep grades, mountain passes, etc. I drove the 30' and Tundra from MD to NV last year and from MD to AZ this year. Some of the steep highway grades I could only maintain 45 mph uphill which doesn't bother me too much, it is going down those steep grades that can be scary. I would often have to drop down to 2nd gear and still hit the brakes. One downhill caught me off guard this summer and scared the crap out of me. I thought about upgrading the brakes, but my cousin just became the General Manager of a Ford dealer in VA and I am picking my a F250 diesel this weekend. With the Powerstroke I should be able to maintain highway speeds uphill and use the diesel brake to maintain a nice controlled descent. Life is too short to worry.
