I remember waiting for the school bus when it was -10F. Had to walk a quarter mile to the bus stop, and it was uphill (both ways!)

Yeah but these old retired bones have a hard time straightening up once they have been bent for a while. Might accidentally rock backwards and end up in a snowbank.

As for your size anxiety and towing at speeds of 75-80 MPH with a 4 cylinder. Might wanna re-think that.

Most people see a trailer and want to pass it anyways. So why bother putting your vehicle through undue stress.
Kicking the trans down a gear alot will lead to a hot trans and failure.

I usually tow at 65 in the right lane and let all the people in a hurry pass.
Let em. It's less stress on your vehicle and you.

When I can I'll get up to 70-75 during a tail wind, downhill.
Sometimes during a strong headwind I stay behind a semi truck and let them break the wind.
(Think NASCAR drafting).

Just a towing tip for your future travels. Have fun and stay safe.

I am retired, I have no problem going 60. The last time I was in the US heading west to California in the mountains , it was night and I did my best to keep behind a set of tail lights to judge where the road was. We were all over the speed limit and I finally had enough, I slowed down and did my best in the dark. Came around a bend and a whole bunch of tail lights in a row. One of the cars that passed me went over the edge. I don't want to cause an accident with others passing me, on the other hand I still have an attachment to breathing.
