Adding one more thing that I learned improperly inflated or deflated tires max pressure should be used on RV and TV

All about aero moreso than the weight. If she sticks up in the air like a big box on wheels then it doesn't matter what TV you's gonna suck the petro big time.

Was the 16' trailer a tall trailer like a conventional travel trailer, or something like a flatbed cargo trailer ?? The frontal area makes a huge difference.

The 16 foot trailer I pull is a cargo trailer, wells cargo, angled v front, not quite as tall as the stampede but with a full load I can muster 14-17, if I keep the speed at 65 or below
