I know the dealer didn't tell you, but the ST trailer tires you have on your trailer are only speed rated at 65 MPH. Any faster, and you run the risk of a tire coming apart, and possibly damaging your brand new baby.
BTW, the trailer looks great, any interior pics yet?

If you are dead-set on going 75, LT tires are rated for 75MPH. Just make sure they are up to the load. (LT225/75R15 D) You do have ST225/75R15's on it now? There are two sizes for Bambi's, one is a 14".

The dealer told me i could do 70 mph on the highway but if i should slow down to not have problems then i will do that.I just want to move with the traffic if possible.

Devo, I wouldn't worry about moving with traffic. Speed is not a good combination with trailer towing, especially when there is traffic on the road. So far, 65 is my top speed, with a rare burst of speed to pass someone.
