Speaking of mileage, I did about a 2200 mile round trip to Georgia and got almost 18 MPG on the way down...and 15 MPG on the way back. I thought my foot was a little heavier on the way back but jeesh! 3 MPG loss?! If I can manage a solid 8-9 MPG with that trailer I'll be psyched. I know the key is keeping the speed down, and you really can't be in a rush to drive 2600 miles!
when I went down to FL from VA i got great MPG down and lost 2-3 on the way back. I don't know why. It was raining on the way back, don't know if that matters.

my step dad would say "it's because your going UP the earth, not down, get a Globe I'll show you" what a smart ass.
