Just picked up a Coachman Freelander Model 21RS that is on a 4500 Chevy chassis and am getting 10.5 not towing anything and doing 65-70. It's a 25 footer. Hope this helps.

My 3010 DS gets between 7 and 8 towing my 2014 jgc. But that 70 mph +.

At a steady 65 it gets over 8 mph.

Until you get 10000 miles you won't get the best gas mileage or performance. I experienced significant better performance around that mileage.

2014 Sunseeker 2650S

2014 Sunseeker 2650S (Ford V-10) towing 5,000lb car/trailer combo:
Before Scan Gauge E - 8 MPG with cruise control averaging 60-65 MPH.
After Scan Gauge E - 9 MPG kicking cruise control off when going up/down hills at 55 MPH.

The Scan Gauge E really shows you when/how you loose your MPG. In hilly NYS and PA driving, I've seen 3 MPG (instantaneous) with the cruise control trying to keep speed up a hill. Kick the cruise off and let it slowly decrease speed and it doesn't drop below 5-6 MPG in most places. Going down a long hill the cruise control will downshift and you'll loose free gravity-based energy. Kick the cruise off as you approach the downshift point (about 4 MPH above what it is set at) and you may speed up to 70 MPH (air resistance limited in most places) and you'll see 999 MPG for the length of the down-hill run.

New 2015 Sunseeker 3170DS.
First trip (to Talladega) 2200 miles round trip. 7.4mpg using mid grade gasoline. This Sunseeker and my previous MH (06 Chateau 31P) run much better on mid-grade fuel. Try it for a couple tankfulls, your MPG Will increase, as will your available power.

I had the same size engine (V10) in two different Sunseekers;
2011 Sunseeker 2300 - 10 mpg
2013 Sunseeker 2860DS - 7.5 mpg avg.

We have a 2860 usual is 9-10 on 2000 to 4000 altitude gain trips base altitude is 4500 for us trips to 10000 ft elevation we drop to 8.5. Just towed a Rzr 800 we were at 8.2 mpg, I stay at or below 65. Remember generator draws from the tank will give you a low milage and remember 8 may seem low for a truck, but it's dang good for a house
