With a 14k 5er I usually run around 2000-2500, up to 4k plus on inclines. 6-9 mpg. I just switched from a 2014 tradesman to a 2015 lonestar ( I got a deal on an upgrade I couldn't pass up). My 14 had 30k milles on it and pulled from day 1. This one has 20k on it and never pulled and I am getting about 2 mpg less. I am hoping it improves after I a few pulls on it.
My boat is close to 4k lbs and close to 32' on the trailer with a TeeTop and it pulls it effortlessly.
