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!!

Pulling the rig below with two weeks worth of clothes, beer, food, bikes, etc.. me the wife and our two kids I get 11.5 doing 60mph and 10.5 doing 65mph. Handcalculated with a regen.

Trailer unloaded is 9600, loaded I would guess 10,500-11,000. Truck is bone stock. 3.73 rear end. 2WD.

I get about 10mpg pulling my 12.5k pound, travel trailer style, triple axel toy hauler. Truck is an 08 fat bottom tow boss (4:30 gears) 4X4. But I'm also running the Spartan 210 tow tune with DPF/DOC delete.
