Gotta love photoshop!
Thor Chateau 23U on an E350 chassis and the V10 pulls
8.6 - without the toad and staying out of the mountains. 65 and under
7.6-7.8 with toad (Ford Escape)
7.2 - Headwinds and mountainish terrain. Haven't been out west yet so assuming that the Rockies would require more juice.
Upgrading to a Forester 3011DSF and expect the mileage to drop 1 mpg all the way around.

2004 Dodge dually diesel 6 speed standard 2X2 towing a 30' 2009 Cedar Creek and we get 15 MPG (Imperial). The Dodge has a "Smarty Junior EMC" that we put on "Tow" for hauling and "Stock" unhooked.

Just a little more clarification - this is our average. We have traveled around British Columbia (Duffy Lake Rd with 13 % grades) across Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, S. Dakota, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Arkansas, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada and Oregon. The Cedar Creek has a GVW of 13,900. We typically keep our speed to 65 MPH max. It helps to be "over trucked" for the GVW of the RV.

Stopping power not there.

stopping power is there if trailer brakes properly adjusted . but talk about no more difficult sites to get into with your tow vehicle... what a breeze turning around anywhere

If the brakes on the camper were adjusted properly the camper would pull the car inside out when you hit the brakes ........

]Just got the Rockwood 8289WS towing with a 2012 Toyota Tundra 5.7L Crew Max with a 5.5 ft bed. Towed for the first time and got 9 mpg on my Tundra gas engine. Towed the camper well with plenty of horsepower to spare.
