Cool V10 sst 3500 1998

Anyone familiar with V10 mileage numbers? I expected bad but 7 around town and 6.5 pulling 30' fifthwheel. It's 4x4 extend cab with suicide doors in rear. Long bed, white, with blue strips. Weighs about 6700lbs. Dry. Original paint and its in real nice shape, 38,000 original miles. Leather seats, loaded up inside. Rear bench doesn't look sat in. It was kept inside much of its life and pulled a big off shore race boat. Roll up aluminum bed cover. It had one light rust spot about dime size in bed. I put rino lining sprayed in before fifthwheel hitch install so it's preserved real well now. Locked closed bed cover when not pulling trailer. Not complaining about mileage just wanting to compare. Not my daily driver. My 2009 R/T 6 speed Challenger also shares that duty, poor me. I sold my 2006 Ram Hemi 4x4 1500 short bed and purchased this 1 ton to pull new fifth wheel trailer. It's one hell of a tuff ass truck. Had a 3/4 ton 4x4 Ram 1995 years ago, pulling big travel trailer. It was a 360. Good truck but under powered for towing. My first Ram a 4x4 1500 1985. Also a great pickup.
Thanks, JP
