Towing MPG for a Winnebago 2101DS

I am looking at this trailer and was just curious what I might expect my MPG to be on the east coast (relatively flat). My TV is a 2005 Avalanche 1500 with 3.42 gears. It gets around 21 MPG highway and 15 MPG city.

Your gas mileage will be determined by aerodynamic resistance of the trailer at given speed (rises dramatically after 65 mph), less by tow vehicle type or weight of the trailer. Expect 10-11 mpg at 60-65 mph. Going faster, fighting headwind will give you single digits. In Florida road surface is formulated differently from other states and will cause your mileage to drop by 1-1.5 mpg

A very good friend of mine has a 2009 with the 5.3 and 6 speed trans. He tows a 24' Jayco and at 60 MPH he is around 11 MPG.
