With my 2007 Lexus GX470 pulling 2007 20' safari, I get an average of 11 mpg going through some mountain.

I just got a brand new 2011 Ford Larit F-150 with the Turbo Eco Boost engine. My research says 22MPG without towing. I have a 22' CCD International and will be going out at the end of the month. I'm curious to see what kind of milage this will bring. I sure hope it surpasses my expectations because I love this big silver truck.. :-)

We just completed our first long trip with our TV/AS combo. We traveled 13 days and 2200 miles on a round trip from our home in New Jersey down through Maryland, West Virginia, and Virgina to Crossville, Lynchburg and Nashville, Tennesssee. Our '06 Silverado 2500 Duramax/Allison averaged about 14.7 mpg pulling our '09 23' Flying Cloud. Some tanks were better and some worse, depending on terrain, including some 7% grades in WV. I usually cruise at about 63mph, when I can, with the tach showing about 1700-1800 rpms. I was real pleased with that and I can't say enough about the way the diesel performed! The only way to go IMHO, but that's the topic for another thread!

I tow a 23' International w/ a 2010 Ford f150 fx4 with max tow and max payload packages ( rated to tow 11300lbs.) and from NEPA to Savannah, GA and back on I-81 we got between 12 & 13 mpg. On the interstate to Canada w/out towing, I got 19.9mpg (13 hours) - at the cost of regular gas. I went in to buy the 2011 f250 diesel - a great vehicle - but it wouldn't have done a better job -IMHO- and cost less to buy and less to fuel. I also often drive the F150 on a daily basis. The F250 is a great truck, but in the Pocono Mts., diesel is much more expensive than reg. Gas.
Happy streaming!
Peter

Just did 350 miles outward with 12.5 mpg (US) and the return at 10.5 mpg (US) - the head wind was nasty on the way back. Maintained 62mph as far as possible on the highway. It was mostly quite flat.

That was our 2011 Toyota Sienna towing a 2011 28' International Serenity.

Of course, it's a little better when not towing!

That's not bad! I'd love to see the 28' Serenity. We have the 23' and love it. I usually tow at 65 - 70 mph and feel very comfortable. I wish I could get away, but rain, high water and work have conspired against me this Spring! Sooner or later

Happy travels,
Peter

It's early days yet but on a horribly windy day coming back from Upstate New York, our 2011 Toyota Sienna recorded a miserable 10.4 mpg (US) over the 350 mile trip. That was towing our 2011 International Serenity, with the kids on board.

Last weekend we did a little over 100 miles coming home from Goderich in Ontario and clocked 15.8 mpg (US), although that was without kids, no wind and no highway work. I reckon we'll average around 12 mpg (US), maybe a bit better as I get the hang of driving sensibly, by the end of the season.

In Canada, the speed limit is 62mph and I like to stick to that; I'm the only one in the whole country who does, though.

The 28' Serenity is brilliant, I'm glad we went for it, despite the cost and the weight.

On our 7,000 mile trip from Utah-Florida-Idaho, I averaged 8.4 mpg with our 2008 F-250 V-10 towing our 2002 30' Classic w/so. Considering the head winds, mountains, stop/go in big cities, I thought it was great. I did not use the "lie-o-meter", it was actual mileage/gallons used at each fill-up.
