Have an '03 Ford Ranger 4X4 5 speed and have been towing behind our motor home. The manual says to not exceed 55 mph. Is there a real reason not to do so or just someone's opinion at Ford? I don't see the difference in towing the Ranger 4 wheels down than running the truck via the engine. It is pretty hard to maintain 55 mph downhill in all locations without getting run over.
Hopefully someone here will have the technical knowledge to explain. I am not wanting to run fast, just would like to run 60 to 65 sometimes.
