I have a 2017 25bhs with a Weight of 4750lbs unloaded and I pull it with a 2014 Silverado V6. I get anywhere from 8 to 9 mpg. A 45 minute drive typically eats a quarter of a tank of gas. I'm not planning on any long distance trips with my current setup. If that were the case I would probably up grade to 2500.

We are pulling a Surveyor 291, dry weight 5,300 lbs with a Dodge Durango R/T Hemi, we average 10.5 on the highway. Without towing we get 19 mph on the highway, 15 mpg around town.

10.8 to 12.0, depending on how much of the hilly parts were mostly uphill or downhill.

The "Best Mileage Last 50" (or whatever I set it at) sometimes got as high as 17.0!!! Though clearly not for long.

Also towing a 25BHS. Have a '14 Sierra 5.3 w/3.08 gears. Regularly get 11.0 to 11.5 mpg towing the hills of Western Maryland and Central PA. Best ever was 13.6 going to Nags Head. I'm happy with that.

I think an overlooked item regarding discussions on mileage while towing, is........what does it do without towing, on highway? E.G., what percentage is your towing mileage of your normal mileage? If it's 25%, that's one thing.......if it's 75%, that's another. I guess that's all a way of saying 'How adversely does towing affect your non-towing mileage'. I suspect some vehicles are way worse/better than others.

Speed seems to make a large difference for us. Our 2014 RAM 1500 4x4, Hemi 3.92, usually gets about 17ish under normal circumstances.

In Tow/Haul mode with the trans locked out in 6th and using cruise control, towing our 832IKBS at 65 on the highway it gets about 9.5. But drop the speed to 60 and it averages about 11. 60-65 seems to be the break point for wind resistance for our setup.

Thanks everyone. My DH always wants to know about the gas mileage. I just get in and go and don't worry about it😜

Your way to travel is the way to go. If you worried about a few $$ in gas or diesel your in for a real treat when you start maintaining the camper. Fill up when 1/4 tank and enjoy the trip

That is exactly what we do, fill up and go. When the tank is down to a 1/4 time to stop to fill again and a stretch.
