Post #8 applies to Oregon, the truck speed law is about a page long. But, main point ANY vehicle or combo ie (pickup with RV) that has it's current weight 10,000 lbs plus is to follow max. speed for trucks, that is 55 in Oregon. That weight is not based on the vehicle GVWR but real phsycial weight. Passenger vehicles and combos under 10,000 are allowed the other max. speeds which can be 60, 65, 70. Any vehicle pulling any trailer is not allowed to use the left lane unless passing slower trafiic.

A lot has been said on this speed topic and I agree on them all. I would add that I use the speed control while on the I-state. 60 is the comfortable speed for me, so I just set it and forget it. By doing so, it also keeps my speed from creeping up to 65 or more.
