Those of you who are reporting fuel mileage are you reporting the vehicle calculated mileage or a hand calculated mileage.
I have kept track of fuel mileage on the last 4 vehicles I have owned with a phone app and the fuel mileage calculated from the vehicle is always optimistic. Sometimes equivalent to a 2mpg difference.
As far as the OP goes. I would definitely look at upgrading trucks to a 3/4 or 1 ton. You are at the limit now of what a 1/2 ton can tow. Upgrade for the piece of mind and safety. Then when you upgrade trailers you will have that many more to choose from.
