I was out west this summer. Went 6000 miles with a teardrop camper and got 15 but I travel 75-80.
So that sounds about right then.
I have seen that from 65 to 75 is a big difference in mpg. But I hate 65 lol.

If I drive 55, the mileage is even better. Once above 65, it doesn't seem to make much difference if I push it up to 75.

I don't often travel past 65 mph because the tires aren't rated for it and last thing I want is a blow out on the highways I travel. Taking the trailer on a trip means it's a get away - never want to be rushed to get to my destination. We adopt the mentality that we'll get there when we get there. We do try to travel at off peak hrs to avoid traffic delays.
