    Welcome. What kind of terrain? Highway or in town? How much weight?

    Lots of factors to consider. Short answer will be less then you get empty obviously.

    To answer that question from my experience anywhere from 9.5 to 17. That’s highway pulling a quad trailer with 3 quads on a pretty even surface. That was the same highway only difference was speed. 55-75’ish...maybe faster...ok it was faster.

    Also lifted with 35’s.

    I get about 9-10mpg when towing a travel trailer, bed half full of wood, and the fam. That’s on flat-ish ground and the trailer weighs around 7500lbs loaded.

    worse than 15 mpg for sure! I rented the largest enclosed uhaul trailer and drove from Little Rock to Dallas and that thing was packed from floor to roof. No idea on how much weight but I can tell you I got no more than 10 mpg on the way back driving 65 mph.

    This summer we towed my 21 foot hardtop boat and tons of equipment from South Whidbey Island to Gold River, BC (Nootka Sound). About 700 miles round trip and the truck was amazing, even on the long uphills over the mountains. Averaged about 10 mpg, and the truck handled the boat extremely well.

    4.7 2wd around 7 with my 4runner on a trailer, probably weighs around 6500 and has a lot of wind resistance due to the truck sticking above the tundra.

    For me in Rocky Mtn's with "fake" 35's rule of thumb is - greater than 4K pounds = 7-9 MPG, less than 4K punts = 10-12 MPG.
