2014 Silverado 5.3 pulling FR evo tt about 6,000 lbs loaded. Just got back to so cal from a 3,800 mile trip to s Dakota and Colorado got about 13 -14 mpg average. That works for me. Did have a few diesel rigs pass us going uphill. We passed a few pulled over with blowouts, prob going too fast on trailer tires. :-)

12 to 14 depends on the wind and hills. 65 miles per hour does the best.

2007 Toyota Tacoma, V6, crew cab, 4x4 towing a 2017 2109s. Trailer weighs about 4,600 lbs loaded with our gear, but empty fluid tanks. I'm getting about 8.3 mpg and I go about 65-70 mph. It tows pretty good except into the wind or steep hills, then I get passed by big rigs. I'm going to get a newer, bigger truck soon, cuz I don't like being passed by big rigs.

I'd be lucky to get 8 MPG with this F250, 6.2, 3:73 gear at 62-65 mph in 5 the gear. Most of the time, the lie o meter says 7.8 average.

Trailer weight doesn't seem to be a factor for me. Lightly loaded my Vengeance weighs 6,800 pounds. Load the Harley and other stuff brings it up to 7,800 pounds (both CAT scale numbers). The mileage doesn't change at all. The only real difference is less acceleration under 45 mph.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.
