Nothing in there about not being able to afford to go, just looking for ways to tweak his mileage. Most of us have done it. Towing or not. Especially when fuel hit $4 a gallon.
So lighten up guys. This is the reason some leave forums such as this.

About to finish up the last leg of our trip to South Carolina from South Texas and averaging 11.4 with the TT driving between 60-65. Notice much better mileage when the boost stays under 10psi of course lol.
Anyway I asked mainly because in May I'm looking to go to the 5th wheel. Just wondering if I could stay above 10mpg
And IF you had read my post completely you would see where I gave 2 examples of 2 different towing situations with virtually the same MPG'
And IF MPG are a worry then RVng, Boating , ATVng, Off Roading or numerous other motorized luxury escapes are not for you.
10-11 mpg towing is GREAT.
Buy a MH and 5-7 is going to be the norm.
It is that simple.
