Not using this as an excuse to go faster, just giving my experience with the E-Series chassis Axis. I'm sure the F-53 based campers are different beasts alltogether.

Usually, though, well go 70 or below for most of the trip as it does get noticeably noisier above 70.
Everyone has their own comfort zone for towing at highway speeds in different RV's. The vast majority of RVers can tow all over the country at 70 plus and never have an issue. You will have to excuse my excessive safety warnings but I base it on my work experiences and mean no disrespect.
