What MPG Stock with 40' Fiver

I just bought a 13k 40' full profile fiver this weekend for camping, what kind of MPG's are guys seeing stock? Planning some trips for this summer and want to make sure to budget appropriatly for fuel. I used to get 10mpg with my old 34' travel trailer.

Not sure what kind of terrain you will be traveling through, but if you're going through the mountains it won't be good. Maybe 7-9, with regens kicking in about the time you get ready to go up the biggest mountains. lol, just from experience.

Get rid of your DPF before you pull a trailer that big. If you do not your EGTs will be sky high and yes it will go into regen just as you are hitting the 5 mile straight up hill!!
