It's like the old saying, "If you gotta ask how much, you probably can't afford it." We used to boat on the Great Lakes and our Egg Harbor 37' with twin Chevrolet truck 454 cubic inch engines would average between 25 and 27 gallons PER HOUR when on plane. No matter the cost of gasoline today, pulling our Airstream will NEVER cost what boating cost! We'll be happy with 'streamin no matter how much of it we do. As you said earlier, it's simply a matter of "doing it." That's what we choose to do and that's the way we choose to do it........let us worry about paying for it. I love your "20 and counting" which is probably less by now. When I look at the calendar, I see T minus 40 before my retirement date.....but it is coming FAST!

Probably about the same as without the jeep in the bed.
