towing

How much difference is there between towing a Bambi and a conventional design trailer of the same weight as far as fuel mileage is concerned?

Yes

A Bambi is far more aerodynamic than a box style trailer. Less wind resistence=less fuel.

fuel mileage

I was looking for a more definite answer, i.e. same weight travel trailer (4000 pounds) and currently getting 18 MPG (Chevy Tahoe)without a trailer attached. Does anyone have experience towing both a conventional trailer vs. an Airstream? LIke maybe 12 MPG with the Airstream vs. 8 MPG with the conventional !!
