What year, engjne, gears, mods??? Generally, if it is a travel trailer or fifth wheel camper you can expect 7-10 mpg if it is a flat bed car hauler type then you can see a little better.

The numbers depend on what other have mentioned; model, 4x4 or 2wd, gas or diesel, gearing, etc.


A true friend will be sitting in the jail cell next to you going, "HELL YEA that was fun!"

Default mpg
My 2014 ram 3500 cab and chassis 4x4 6.7 liter flat bed gets around 15.9- 17 mpg empty on the hwy (depending on how fast I am going) around town empty is 12 or so. I bought the truck to pull my lq horse trailer that's about 17,000 lbs loaded and it gets 7-8 mpg but I did not buy it for the best mileage and I am happy to get that with all the power it has with the trailer. I wouldn't give up the power or exhaust breaking for anything!
