Salem LE 26TBSS and 2006 GMC 1500 Sierra Crew Cab, 5.3L, 13,000 lbs GCWR allowed (for 3.73 ratio rear end.) Here's the truck + me + trailer + kids + wife + stuff. Do I get a BINGO prize for being closest to my GCWR? I get about 8-9 MPG towing.

I weighed the truck and trailer the other day and it was 12,400 pounds. Pulling the truck off the scale the trailer came in at an even 5,000 pounds. Plus the hitch weight on the truck I'm estimating the trailer weighed 5,500 pounds loaded, ready for the road. It's a 23 foot Wildwood T23FBL. The tow vehicle is a 2007 Toyota Tundra longbed with 5.7 engine. Without the trailer I average 14-15 mpg on the Tundra.

I average 10 mpg on a trip; driving at a moderate speed. The funny thing to me is that this is the same mpg I averaged with my old, lighter trailer (2,000 pounds lighter) pulled by my Ford F-150 V-6 (1998).
