Another Newbie here

hello everyone,

Another newbie here. My 6 year old son kept asking for a travel trailer, so i finally gave in. Traded my Expdition for a Tundra and bought a 2005 Jay Flight 27BH. So far so good....except for the gas mileage. The Tundra pulls it easily but i'd be lucky to get 7miles to a gallon. Love this forum. Reading posts answered a lot of my questions... Thanks for everyone's contribution, greatly appreciated!

Welcome to the Jayco Owners Forum Duran1 and son! You have already started to make those amazing unforgettable memories! Our MPG drops to 9 when towing.... really feel the pocketbook pain when traveling x-country!

Thanks Av8arkie!

I am honestly not as much concerned with the MPG as with the hassle of finding a roomy enough gas station to fill up... sometimes it is a pain.
