I towed the TT yesterday on a short outing. Lowered my tow speed down to 60mph. Got 9 mpg. When I bought the unit towed it home at 70-75 mph and got 6 mpg. Thanks for the info about towing.

We tow our 5th Wheel at 65 to 68 Mph.

Our truck will stay in 6th Gear without a lot of downshifts at this speed and our fuel mileage is about 10.5 mpg.

For a combined Gross Weight of Truck & Trailer at about 24,000 lbs. I think we are pretty good.

If I speed up and run 70 - 75 our fuel mileage drops to 9 mpg.
