since I am new to group in last few weeks I was wondering what range of mpg your TV is getting on the road /also what type of vehicle you have? I have 2014 jeep Cherokee with v6 and tow pkg/ jeep has air lift from factory/ I get 18 mpg at 60/65 average/that is pulling 2014 a122s/very happy with these numbers/ sure better than last unit starcraft ck19 hybrid 19 footer/Honda ridgeline got 12 pulling it/

i pull at about 17 or 18 ... verified by math. the truck gets much better mpg when just sitting at 2000 rpm .. anything higher and it does start to get noticable.
to WFD .. we are all towing 3500 lb hardside Aframes ... this is why we enjoy our gas mileage ... no wind sheer, or headwind problems with these ..
