Greyhawk towing

Help! I'm new to this forum.
I have a the ford V10 class C. What would be the mileage difference be between towing say a 2700lb flat tow car and a 3900lb flat tow car. Big difference?

Maybe 1 to 2 MPG at most, if even noticeable.

I never noticed much towing mine on a dolly until I hit a mountain grade

we flat tow a Nissan Versa which is about 2500 lbs. It decreases gas mileage by about 1.5 miles per gallon when towing the car vers not towing it. When towing you really can't even tell its back there.

With our '16 Greyhawk 29MV, we tow a '16 Subaru Forester (3,300lbs, manual tran). Like others here we get 8.5 MPG and under depending on terrain. We never drive over 63MPH. I use cruise control continuously.

2016 31DS and 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk....5K pounds. We see 7.5 to 8.5 and speed is more of a factor than even mountain passes. If we are running over 65 we are at the 7.5 range at 55 to 60 or so we see the 8.5.

The Jeep is stealthy, I still find myself yelling at the tailgater until I realize it's the toad. (oops)

As an interesting comparison, I had a 2011 Tundra with the 4.6 V8 and pulled a 25' travel trailer. Almost identical mileage, so I think that makes the Ford V10 a tad more effecient at pulling.

Does anybody flat tow a heavy vehicle like a 5300 lbs Grand Cherokee with their Greyhawk?

We are thinking about switching from a travel trailer to a class c and would need to tow the Jeep because unfortunately the 2017 CR-V we just bought cannot be flat towed.

Id appreciate any insight on well this engine would do pulling that much weight.

Should be perfectly capable unless you are considering spending lots of time out West.
