I have the 21 WRS. I too bought it for the layout. I went from 11.1 to 12 mpg. As the others have said, I don't even know its behind me. Tows like a dream. It has been a very good unit quality wise.

We have a Flagstaff 21WRS V-Lite. So far we have not had any issues pulling it. We bought it primarily for two reasons, 1. We love the layout and 2. It is light enough to tow with our 1/2 ton Chevy pick up.

My experience with dealers is that, if you ride in on a bicycle, they will tell you that their trailers can be towed with a bicycle (LOL).

IMO the V nose shape probably makes the trailer a little more aerodynamic at 60 mph, but There are many other things to consider when towing (i.e. weight, length of trailer vs length of tow vehicle, weight distribution, sway control, etc...) that will have a much greater impact on how easy or how safe it is to tow any given trailer.

I keep my speed at 60 mph. I get 9-10.5 mpg and I feel safer towing. I let all the nuts pass me and I am in better control of my vehicle. I added a 2nd friction sway bar before this last trip and I think it has really helped the trailer track better with the truck. But to answer the OP's question, I don't think the v nose is a tremendous difference maker in mpg's. It adds floor space to the TT and is a conversation starter in rv parks. Also love the large closet up front and the large living area in the rear with the fireplace and pop up tv.

We love our 2012 30wfkss we this summer, we bought it in Amarillo Tx and took it Colorado to over 11,000 ft and then back home to Va. Mileage varied but I think a little over 9 mpg is what we average and that was at 65 mph at times, that is what we got with our 19rr toy hauler. I have noticed a lot more sway but to be expected with the length. I just snug up the sway bars more.

Just got a 30wrls v lite, increased the weight being towed by 2500 lbs, from my old trailer, and got 1 to 2 mpg better. That trip home from the dealer was up and down hills and stop and go through small towns, waiting to see how much better it will be when i go on the interstate. Pulled really easy was suprised it was that smooth.
