Gene, Buying a TT is kinda like buying a big boat. If your worried about gas mileage don't do it. My experience and that of my friends who pull trailers is you will get between 7 to 10 mpg depending on many factors. The main factor is your driving speed. Slow down, better fuel economy. Wind and terrain will be your next biggest factors.
As far as performance goes, get yourself a good weight distribution hitch and preferably one with sway control and a good proportional brake controller such as a Prodigy self leveling unit (especially if you tow in the ountainsgeorgia). I used to pull a Coachmen Apex with a dry weight of 3600 lbs. with my Toyota Highlander equipped with a tow package. I got 7 to 9 mph but tended to drive too fast (70 mph). I would forget the trailer was back there as far as any sway or following performance. Good luck with your purchase decision
