So I now tow with a diesel, should I not compare/mention my gas mileage with the diesel vs the silverado I just traded in because you are bitter about something? I had better remember to go to a fuel station to get diesel and not a "gas" station
Vpierce, we have a 2109S which is the same trailer. Almost the same as the FBRS and we did notice a mileage penalty versus our previous Aframe chalet but its quite a bit more wind resistance even though it is a light weight trailer pulling with the Silverado an 6.0 and it was as low as 8mpg in the mountains. Now its a non issue with the new truck.
Loading the trailer properly, not towing with a full tank of water and keeping weight out of the pass through saving some tongue weight helps. We do have two 30lb propane tanks and 2 6volt batteries which are a lot of weight though.
