Uphill, downhill, with the wind, against the wind, A/C on, A/C off, doesn't seem to matter to my Jayco...7 mpg is about all we can get.

Mileage varies with speed on my 2006 34C Fun Mover with a 6.6L Duramax Diesel loaded to 22,000 lbs. I get about 10 mpg at 55 mph (2000 rpm), but if I creep up to 65 mph I get about 9 mpg. It's got 16,000 miles on it, so don't know that it is really broke in yet.

Ive got a older 89 Ford 21' winnobago with a C-6 3spd trans, 3.56 rear end .I drive 5mph under the speed limit and get anywhere between 6-8 mpg hywy. Overdrive would be a big help here.

Just finished our third trip. We've now had 3 trips of just over 390 miles (same trip each time and fill at same pump each time) and this time we were 7.8 mpg. We were not towing the Tahoe so no idea what that is going to do. Each trip has had a frustrating border crossing at Port Huron taking approximately an hour each time. Don't know what that is doing to the MPG but I've tried to turn it off when I can see were are going to be sitting for several minutes.

I guess I shouldn't be too unhappy as our 07 Tahoe doesn't get much over twice the MPG of the Kodiak.

My rig must be getting broken in. I just returned from a 600 (65-70 mph ave.) mile trip and got 9.7 mpg. No tow, no genset. We have about 8,000 miles on the rig and I swirched to Mobil 1 0-20 syn oil last change. Scotty.
