First Travel Trailer, also love it

This is our first travel trailer, we used the typical camping gear, tent to pop up, back to tent. Now we have a 2010 Surveyor SV264 trailer, and we love to hit the road with it. So far we have taken just local trips to the lake and beach in the state. We are planning for next year when I retire to be on the road a lot more. I also purchased a new Ford F150 5.0 with the tow package. So far very pleased with gas milage of the truck. Anyone else driving the new Ford F150?

Congrats on your new camper and truck but are you really pleased with the mileage you are getting that maybe the first time i ever heard that are you talking pulling mileage or just driving without the camper?

Gas milage

I'm getting 17-18 mpg with work comute, about 19-20 on road. But not pulling the trailer. When pulling the trailer on our longet trip 14-15 mpg, on flat land.
