68 and pulling 26' (30 total). Just do the speed limit, keep alert, keep maintained, and all is good.

Heh Yogi,
Thank you for the info on the truck. Couple more questions: What is the weight of the trailer, What actual MPG are you experiencing, what year is the truck and what was the cost? I'd appreciate it.

Yogi, we stayed at KOA in Grand Junction for two weeks, leaving this morning for home in Indiana. Made 450 miles to Ogallala Neb. I also agree with your thoughts on the 6.7 L powerstroke. I had an '08 6.4 L and this one feels much better. We are pulling a 40' 5th wheel, which weighs almost 19,000 loaded. Our 2012 F-350 DRW pulled thru those mountains with no problem. Just turned 12,000 miles on it and lovin it!
Whereabouts in Indiana are you from?

53 and pull a 32' fiver! I think it's a perfect camper for empty nesters!
