Towing affecting mpg
I have a 22' Chieftain with a 454. My scuba trailer is a 5x8 enclosed Haulmark that weighs about 2,000 pounds full. How much can I expect my mpg to drop?
I remember as a kid we pulled a boat behind our 24' with a 440, and my dad said he "couldn't even tell it was back there." This same trailer drops my V-6 Blazer's mpg from 24 to 16, but I realize a lot of that is aerodynamics (the trailer is at least a foot taller than the Blazer) and the fact that the little V-6 is underpowered.
I'm going to be in Florida for more than a week, with cave diving mixed with other tourist stuff, and I've thought about putting everything in the MH, but some of the gear is heavy and bulky.
What can I speculate?
