Same here, I didn't buy it for MPG, nor do I really care, but I do watch it. 2009 Charleston 40' no tag, 7 - 8 mpg pulling Jeep Wrangler around 70 mph. No complaints!

Do you know how to tell when the MH sales person is lying????? When his lips are moving. They will tell you all kinds of stories to make the deal.

Just like the other posts 7 - 8 mpg, depending on conditions and speed you like to run.

I have a GT350ts. I drive it 2500 every winter towing a jeep liberty, I have averaged 7.1 / 7.2 every trip. Some 8's and some 6's but it works out to low 7's each time.

Kind of hard to calculate accurately when one only does short trips with an eighty gallon fuel tank. All I know is that it's close to what I used to get towing my 5th wheel going by how often I have to stop to fill up.
Another bonus is being able to sightsee with the toad.

No matter what you tow it won't be great and I really don't care because sleeping in my own bed and cooking my own meals, leaving when I want to and staying as long as I want to more than makes up for it.

Our '02 32-footer (F53, V-10) has averaged just over 7 mpg for the 5000 miles we've driven it in 3 seasons, almost all west coast, only a few mountain trips (North Cascades Hwy 20 once and US2 through Leavenworth once).

Just finished 6,000 mile trip, and averaged about 7.5, driving 60-62. From California to Oklahoma, south to San Antonio, east to New Orleans, north to Michigan, back to Oklahoma and home. Got as low as 6 and as good as 8.7. Not good for a car, but great for a condo! Averaged less than $3.00 a gallon, funny how we get conditioned to think that's a good deal!

don't feel bad, many newbies who don't do research first, such as a forum like this one, end up believing the salesman because they don't know how the salesman will say anything to close the deal. #1 newbie mistake, believing the salesman.

like: sure your minivan can tow that or no one will do the warrantee work if you buy from a company like RVW or RVDirect or we know nothing about FR's second year warranty for $150 or you don't need a WDH or you bet your 1/2 ton truck can tow that 10,000lbs. dry weight 5th wheel with no problems!

MPG is funny. On my 2000 Allegro weighing in just under 14K with 19.5 wheels, 4 speed trans and the older V10 I consistently got 9-9.5-10 mpg with out tow. A high taking the two lane at 40-45 mph back home one Memorial Day weekend I got 11.8 mpg! Towing DW's RAV4 on a dolly through out Vermont and Maine I got a consistent 8.5 mpg. My Georgetown is at just under 18k with 22.5 wheels and the new and greatly improved V10 along with now a five speed tranny (4 + OD). I'll get 8 or a little above with out tow and low 7's high 6's with same dolly and RAV set up. I just wonder if the height of the two RV's has a lot to do with the MPG difference. GT at 12'3" and the Allegro almost exactly one foot shorter.
