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.
