The motorhome rental and speed
The motorhome is full of comfort. You are able to go wherever you want to, without leaving the house. This is due to the fact that a RV or a motorhome is a house on wheels, where everything is available for life. A RV is a complete autonomy of existence, complete freedom of movement! Absolute freedom comes when the car replaces a house, hotel or tent. As a carefree snail traveling with its house on wheels, we rush, fly an arrow on the road or stop anywhere in this flight, in the most beautiful and most desired places. The motorhome rental gives us the opportunity to go wherever we want to live, relax, sleep, etc. Also, it is much more profitable than traveling in another way or buying your own trailer. This style of travel is called “caravanning”. The planet is easily revealed to those one who obey its roads. The wind of freedom drives a trailer or a motorhome farther and farther, gorgeous avenues of capitals are replaced by highways and country roads during the way to.

In the other western parts: in Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, Michigan, North and South Carolina, Ohio, Mississippi, etc. the speed is limited to 70MPH.

Speed limit in the cities

But in Texas, North Dakota, New Mexico the rules are less strict and you may drive no faster than 55MPH. But you will have to pay a fine if the over speed even on 1MPH be noticed.
Before starting a journey….
If you are going to rent an RV, calculate it total weight. In many states for heavy vehicles the speed limit is lower on 5-15 MPH. That is because of long braking distance and purpose of reducing the quantity of fatal collision. Also don’t forget about the speed restriction in the night period. It’s also marked on the signs.
Besides, if you are riding in a bad weather condition (torrential rain, hail, snowfall, etc.) also slow down your RV but if you move too slowly, you break the rules too.
