Same trailer with 3 sleds in it with my 2008 Cummins got 16-17. That was with all deletes done.

My Tahoe was just as bad with the v-nose and two-three snowmobiles inside. It was like I had a fuel leak MPG was so bad!!!!

I haven't pulled anything yet with my Ram, but I typically get around 17 mpg when the majority of my driving is highway. Again...this is average, and I'm usually hauling the mail as they say. If I slow down between 60-65, it's much better. Get anywhere in the 45-50 range, and it gets great gas mileage according to the EVIC. For a close to 400hp V8, I'm pretty happy how reasonable the mileage can be all things considered.
