Flagstaff 29'
01' Excursion PSD
10 on average
7.6K and up to 9.5k, still get 10 on average

My milage is hand calculated by FULL fillups and miles driven for that last 5 years, NO using the lie-o-meter most TVs come with.

JMO.........

One very patient wife and one furry child who travels with us. Forty-two years of trailering and camping, and I still have a blast.

Rockwood 2605 (27')
The UVW on the sticker says 4600lbs, I figure 5600lbs loaded.
2005 Ram 1500 Quad 5.7L

Measured mileage while towing it home from RVW in Ohio. Recorded 8 mpg driving 60-65 mph with medium crosswinds. Hope thats not the best it gets!

What size is your TT?
What's your typical TT GVW?
What tow vehicle?
MPG while towing?

For example:

29' Flagstaff / 6500lbs loaded / Ford F250 / 12MPG

I'm just trying to gauge how much TT I can (or should) pull safely. Thanks in advance!
25 Salem Lite
5500lbs approx.
2000 chevy Z71, extra cab, short box, 5.3 engine
MPG..unknown.....just got the trailer and the snow is right around the corner.
