I think with my '94 Dodge pulling the trailer pictured but slower on dirt roads I got around 14 mpg? Not towing, almost 20 mpg, if I remember right.

With the 06' we got 17-20 mpg! (I loved that truck) With out a trailer I could get 25+ mpg with the way I drive.

With the '10 I average 11-13mpg towing with the Wilson loaded. Empty or not towing 15-17 mpg. It seems to do better when you get on the freeway and let her stretch her legs.

I pull an '01 4star 2 horse straight load with a dressing room with a Land Rover Discovery with a V8. The Land Rover isn't ideal, but my dad gave it to me after I got the trailer, and it's hard to beat free. The trailer loaded is under the towing capacity, too, although we only get 12 mpg while towing. It is quite comfortable to drive since the seats are very adjustable and I'm only 5'2". I do wish it had towing mirrors and better brakes. I'm really dependent on my electric trailer brakes if I need to stop going downhill. Overall, it works great for short trips on our limited budget, so I can't complain.

I have a 1982 McBride 2 horse straight load bumper pull, hauled by a 2012 Chevy Silverado. Not an up to date picture, its recently had a lot of body work done on it, but this is what it looked like when we bought it.

Just brought my first trailer home yesterday:


I got a Tundra because I've had good luck with Toyotas so far, plus my heel could actually reach the floor while pressing the accelerator!

For the trailer, I ended up getting a Circle J Mustang. The stalls are nice and roomy and it's very light (as in color, not weight ) and airy, which were the most important things to me.

This is my current project, going to be my daily driver and dedicated tow rig when done.



It is a 72 Chevy C/30 that I converted to a 4x4 and stuffed a Cummins 12 Valve between the fenders, frame is fully boxed, Trans is an NV4500, 205 T case, Dana 60 in the front Eaton HO-72 in the rear.

Going to stick a Canonball bale bed on it when its done.

Not sure what I am doing for a trailer yet.

The way I say it is GM stopped making Outstanding trucks in 1972, they stopped making great trucks in 1987, they stopped making trucks in 1998.
