Well, I don't know about the 6 1/2 ft box but with my 8 ft, dually CC and all, I haven't seen any difference one way or the other. I got around 8-9 towing and 17 and change empty with the tailgate on and with the Turbo-net. If there is any difference its so little that a change in wind or driving speed or one drag race and it doesn't matter anyway. My take is that the lack of turbulence, ease of hook/unhook, far outweighs whatever difference there might be, if any. Besides, those compartment doors and tailgate cost a lot more than a dab of diesel fuel, IMHO.
I agree with you 100%. I found them
at J.C. Whitney for $75. It really is a great idea.... thanks
I also think the air dynamics in the rear bed completely
different when hauling a 5th wheel.
The issue of using more or less fuel is not
an issue......it's moot point.
