From motorhome to travel trailer

Just traded my old Winnebago Brave 1992 for a new Crossover travel trailer, sure is different for me, just can't wait to hit the road a different way but the save in fuel cost will allow me to go further

Good luck with the fuel savings,please report your findings. I started with a 5er and got around 8-9mpg and now i have a motorhome and still get around 8-9mpg. Maybe if your TT is very light and you have right truck for the job you may see quite a difference.

The Crossover is a very light TT 3,000 lbs only, they are made to be towed with SUV like my Chevy Equinox 6 cyl, so far I only made a short ride with lots of hills and average 20 mpg, so far so good

We did the same thing. We enjoyed the Jayco Seneca, but are really enjoying the Jayco White Hawk. Good luck with your new rig.
