    As long as you keep your thoughts on wheelin when filling up the beast it makes it all worth it.

    Old school yj, not a big deal.

    If I tow with the truck I don&#39;t get much better.

    I look at it this way.... I don&#39;t spend any more towing with the motorhome than people spend on plane tickets or a cruise.

    Don&#39;t know haven&#39;t towed anything with the Suburban. But it gets only 15 at best not towing. Plus it cost me &#036;109 to fill it the other day.

    In my Silverado, I get 10mpg empty, and towing I get around 7mpg, If I stuff the camper in the back AND tow, I go down to 5.8. My 1947 Greyhound bus gets 12mpg, and the 56 Chevy I&#39;ve been driving every day gets 20mpg.

    My lovely 89 Suburban 3/4 ton 2wd gets 11mpg empty, but still gets better than 9 flat-towing my Jeep @ 65mph.

    Next weekend will be the first outing with Deb&#39;s Jeep pulling our camper, have to see how that turns out.

    This isn&#39;t really helping. You guys are getting the same if not better than I. Your supposed to say, "I get 5mpg, your doing good at 7mpg"...
