Heavy towing numbers?

What are some or your mpg's when towing heavy.

I towed my 14k 5th wheel to Fla. and back and got around 8.2 at 66mph. The Cat Scale said I was right at 25k loaded. My truck has the 4.10s. Just curious to see what some of you were getting. I did a search on this but got the phone book. Truck is stock at around 1200 miles on her.

I tow a 15K 5er and I was seeing around 10 out of mine running 60-62mph. My truck was an 08 cc/sb with a 6 speed.

No, it wasn't! I drive a 2010 350 now. Those numbers were on my stock 08.

Not a problem! I haven't had the chance to tow with the new truck yet. Hopefully with all the mods on it, it will see better numbers!

If you do please shoot me a PM on what you get. I dont mind spending the $$ on mods if I see a good result. My 5th wheel weighs in at 14.5k unloaded so it seems our weights are in the same ball park.

Yeah I was thinking about that too. I figured at around between 5-10k miles it would improve some.

They sure do! What type do you haul? I have a Carriage compass. 38' with 4 slides. Last time I had it on the scale, it was 17K fully loaded with clothes, water and all the necessary stuff needed for the wife and kids...
