I know these things aren't exactly fuel efficient or bought for that purpose but what sort of mileage are you guys getting with the camper on and is your rig gas or diesel?

I think you need to ask speed, wind, and elevation, and elevation changes.

I can easily get 12 easily at 60 on flat ground at sea level in my diesel.

5.4 liter gas. 11 empty, 7-9 loaded depending upon speed and elevation. At 4500 feet altitude crawling along forest roads, 6 mpg but all worth it.

With a suburban, 1993 I got 9-10 pulling the camper. Without camper it was about 16-17.

Always 10 miles per gallon with the truck camper. 5.9 L Cummings turbodiesel. Doesn’t matter what elevation, what speed I drive, nothing. Always 10 miles per gallon.

Somewhere around 15 without the truck camper on.

Probably because he’s reading new posts. [emoticon] It is confusing though. We use camper for slidein and tow behind right? [emoticon]
