Tow vehicle survey

Hey guys,

I'd love to have everyone answer the following questions with no judgments or finger pointing (not that there's any of that on this site).

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!

Thanks Milz. That's pretty darn good for a 1/2 ton and a TT that large.

42' Salem Park Trailer/ 1975 El Camino / Keystone Classics / fuzzy dice/ 4 MPG





Seriously, I don't tow this trailer. If I did, I'd have to trade the TITAN for a 1 Ton truck. I've got the trailer permanantly parked.

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.

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!
