Gas mileage

What kind of gas mileage are y'all getting? We're looking at the 265DS and we plan to tow a Jeep. Any predictions?

they're asking about a motorhome towing a toad, not a truck pulling a trailer.

i respectfully disagree since they don't have to worry about frontal air resistance as a factor.
you and i tow a heavy sail/barn door down the road, which i think, is much different than a Jeep behind a motorhome.

Well, while the thread title is Gas Mileage, the forum area is Lexington Motor Homes. I refrained from jumping in for that reason.

Didn't mean to start an argument. Guess I should have been more clear that I was referring to a Lexington towing a Jeep. Still learning my way around this forum.
