OMG WHERE???? What?An excellent mph here would be 40 mpg... and you would be driving a tinfoil car that would squish you flat in a wreck!
My Ford 150 v8 5.4 gets 6-8 when towing a loaded trailer. And at $4.35 a gallon, I ain't going anywhere soon!!
I would not recommend buying a trailer bigger than you "need." Of course what you ned is up to you!The tags are often by weight class, so it'll cost ya more - insurance also.If you don't need to pull all that weight, don't stress out your transmission, shocks, brakes, etc.
