Went to diesel stop.
Great site, thanks.
Be a great rig when you put the 34 and 350 together.
Tell me your feelings on pulling a 34.
My wife really likes the room, but it sure stretches you out there.
Turning radius, hooked up with your 350, any idea?
Fuel mileage with the 350 and 10# of AS?
Notice you are and Escapee. Headquarters are about 75 miles from my home.
So, you will fulltime? 34 would make a lot of sense then.
And, what are you going to do for elec. gerneration when you boondock?

Don't know yet ... but I am betting on 12-14 MPG at 60-65 MPH.

We plan to fulltime for at least 3 years .. and then come back and figure out what to do about our house.

We will do very little boondocking ... so we're going to wait to see what we will need when we do. The Hondas sound pretty good.

This wait is killing me!

The best I've ever gotten LIGHT is 14.

The 6.0 PSD gets better mileage than the 7.3.

Also .. I will have a 3.73 rear end .. again better mileage than the 4.11.

Quite a few folks on The Diesel Stop are reporting mileage in the 10.5 to 12 MPG range ... with 3.73 rear ends ... and they are towing 10K and heavier 5th wheels ... with the 7.3 PSD.

MPH, wind and terrain have alot to do with it.

Hey Leadfoot ... I don't think 12 to 14 is too out of whack .. but we will see.

EXCURSION- 7447#, NAKED, 7.3 PSD, 126kMILES
AVERAGE AT 70= 17
AVERAGE AT 65= 19
AND, THAT IS COMBINED, HIGHWAY AND CITY, BUT I LIVE IN THE COUNTRY.
UNDERSTAND THE 6.0 PSD IS ABOUT 10% BETTER THAN 7.3 ON MPG.

Interesting; this thread has morphed into something that has nothing to do with the subject. I realized the 16CCD is at some risk of theft, and ordered the trailer keeper/wheel lock device. This thing fits, but not well, onto the AS, as the central hub cover makes the fitting tight. It seems that it can only be installed on the driver side (no big deal). Also, the location of the lug that the device attaches to is critical; must be in the 7:30 or 7:38 position. My biggest concern is that these are designed for boat trailers, or others with wheels set outside of the trailer. If someone were to try to pull the AS with this device on it, it would tear the hell out of the trailer. I called the manufacurer and asked if they would cover damage to the trailer. They will not. So, I would not recommend this device.
