Hi from North Alabama

Hi yall,
My husband and I (both retired), currently have a 2005 Gulfstream BT Cruiser, 23 ft. We have put a few years, and miles on it, and we are hoping to upgrade to an FR3 25DS soon.
We have a 12 yo miniature Schnauzer (Gunner) who accompanies us on our journeys.
We also have an enclosed trailer that we haul our Harley in, but in the process of figuring out the best way to haul a small car & Harley.
We are happy to find this forum and look forward to information you all can help us with.
From what I've read so far, it seems that most have the FR 30. We don't have a problem with the smaller 25DS, and actually prefer it. Would be particularly interested in those who have one and could share tips with us, as well as the proverbial "how many mpg"?
We can coax 10 -12 mpg out of the BT Cruiser, and wondering if anyone is getting even close to that?

LadyBiker-Welcome to the forum. It's an awesome place for information. If you have questions on a specific model of RV, MH or TT, try posting directly in that subsection of the forum to get to the right people. Everyone here is so nice. It's like they can't help themselves in giving you the help or advise you need. Kind of like the people you meet face to face when you camp!
