If you're concerned about mileage, get a Sprinter Chassis... Course, it probably won't pull your Jetta.
Class-C's as noted (gas) are 5-10 range, depending on length. Note, that often the larger ones are close to gross weight maximum and adding the weight of a car on the hitch can take them over gross weight, not to mention not-so-wonderful handling.
I have friends 1-ton diesel trucks pulling 5th wheels, they generally do better mileage, but not by much. 31 foot Class-C to 31 foot Fifth wheel behind a 1-ton diesel truck, the diesel handles it better in general.
