seems about right. i tow through the same areas (PA and Md) i have a 25 gal gas tank - 1 hour towing burns 1/4 tank of gas..... so i plan on a gas stop every 2 hours (or 1/2 tank)....

Yes, we are learning that! Already spent probably $2K in basic accessories, just in the month leading up to getting the TT home. So far, the generator has been the highest dollar outlay, but I rationalized it by telling myself we can also use it if there's a power outage at home.
