What do you pull with your F250 6.2 Gasser

Just upgraded my TV, now it has me thinking about upgrading my TT. Wondering what people pull with Trucks similar to mine.

I pull a 38 ft Keystone Outback 325BH travel trailer. Weights almost 11k lbs fully loaded.

I have a 2016 F250, 6.2, 4x4, CC, 6.5 ft bed. It tows the trailer nicely. I have a Reese SC WD system (15,000/1,500) and a Reese dedicated anti-sway bar.

Three add-ons I have done to the truck are:

TorkLift overload spring pads. I have the camper package, which gets you the overload springs. These TorkLift pads are just thicker and cause the overload springs to engage immediately, rather than wait for a 1k lbs first.

TorkLift Superhitch Magnum 30k. Probably the beefiest hitch I have ever seen. My hitch is no longer my truck's limiting factor.

TorkLift Superhitch double bar shank. A big shank designed for the double receiver Superhitch.

With the 6.2, I don't worry about revving it. Pulls hills just fine. I don't tow every day, so a gasser made sense for me.

We took a 2014 F250AS 6.2 gasser to sturgis last year from NC with a 20ft enclosed trailer $1400.00 for fuel with two bikes & trike also took 08 Ram 3500 with a 40ft gooseneck with 6 dressers $800.00 for fuel bought a Ram 2500 diesel as soon as we got back. The gasser just didn't cut it!

We pulled a 2001 Cougar 281EFS for years. We just recently traded for a 2013 Wildcat Sterling 32RL (GVWR about 12400). Both pull just fine unless going up a steep hill, the 5.8 Triton will maintain about 40-45 is all. It does not accelerate like a diesel but that is not very important to us so the gasser gets the job done.

Just pulled our new, (to me), Puma 26RLSS trailer home on a 400 mile trip. The route was through rolling Kansas and Oklahoma hills and a pretty steep mountain climb in Oklahoma. Trailer weighs about 8000#, loaded.
My 2015 F250, 6.2 gasser, handled it with no problems. I had the cruise control set for 75mph most of the time. Average fuel mileage for the 400 mile trip home was 7.1 mpg.

I am now pulling a 2016 Work and Play 25 WB with a 2016 F250 6.2 with 373 rear. While I would love to have a diesel, the difference in price kept me in this range. We are in the Smokey Mountain area and on one 8% grade! I was in 2nd gear but at 40 MPH and could have run over the semi in front of me . We average 8 mpg at 65 MPH.

Just got a new F250 6.2L. Haven't towed yet, but we have Wildwood 31KQBTS that is 36ft and around 10,000 lbs. (haven't weighed yet either)
I'm curious about what kind MPGs people are getting.
