My last truck was still a 2500HD but it was a gasser. We took our last trailer, a much smaller 19' Starcraft Hybrid with only 2 bunks and no slide, out to Mt. Rushmore. I thought I had a hole in the tank as I was only getting 6 MPG. This truck should do much better!

My 2500HD gasser gets 8 to 12 at best mpg towing a 8500 lbs Lacrosse.

Mt. Rushmore is a great trip to take. Did that trip several years ago.

Those GM 6.0 gassers are fuel hogs...back when I had an '09 Sierra, best I got towing a loaded 9500lb TT was 7-8mpg doing 60mph, hand calculated. If you get 10 mpg or better...you're probably recording fuel mileage traveling downhill only
